Mooseltoe Activity: Make a Paper Moose

Today, for an activity to accompany the Mooseltoe book from our Christmas book advent, I made a pattern for a Mooseltoe-inspired paper moose. The pattern can be downloaded free here.

If you make this with pre-reading kids, you can sing the following phonics ditty while working together:

“The name of the letter is M. The sound of the letter is /m/. Make a moose, M says /m/.”

Once the moose is done, you can change the ditty to “I made a moose, M says /m/.”

Then name the moose with a name that begins with the letter M and change the ditty again to insert the moose’s new name into it. For example, “Meet Mortimer the moose, M says /m/.”
