Who Took the Cookie from the Cookie Jar

who took the cookies from the jar kindergarten book recommendation

With my kiddos, I always have my eyes peeled for books that relay songs or rhymes they already know well. Books like these give pre- and early readers confidence, since they are already familiar with the text. When I came across Who Took The Cookie From The Cookie Jar?, I knew it would be perfect for a sweet story time. Read on to learn more about the book and grab your printable cookie jars!

The text within Who Took The Cookie From The Cookie Jar? is based entirely around the popular children’s’ song. No doubt, your kids have sung it with a group of friends or classmates in the past. They’ll love the familiarity, and it will shine through in the fluency they demonstrate while reading along. The song is easy to adapt to your own group, since it can bounce from child to child simply by inserting each name in the rhyme.

There’s the opportunity to integrate singing and music along with your read aloud, which can interest even reluctant young readers. Viviana Garofoli provided the illustrations for Who Took The Cookie From The Cookie Jar? The children are drawn in a simple, cheerful style. Kids will love watching the class in the book follow the trail of cookie crumbs as they investigate who really took the cookie! The images are bright and colorful, so they’ll capture kids’ attention during a read aloud

I created some simple and cute printables to incorporate basic math skills into this cookie jar story time. Print off a copy for each student, and encourage them to fill their cookie jars with the appropriate number of cookies.

These worksheets are flexible, and offer several options for ‘filling’ the jars. Markers, crayons, or colored pencils to draw cookies are an obvious choice. Fingerprints with a brown stamp pad are fun ‘hands-on’ option. I used the eraser end of a pencil as a stamp with some brown paint.

If you laminate your pages, they can be reused in the future, and pair well with Play-Doh or dry erase markers ‘cookies’. Small brown buttons or pom-poms would be perfect math manipulatives for this activity, and would incorporate a bit of fine motor work at the same time.
