TEACHERS! CAREGIVERS! LIBRARIANS! I’ve rounded up TEN activities created just for DIVA DELORES AND THE OPERA HOUSE, perfect for kicking off the new school year, which is just around the corner, or any time of year. Enjoy!
ONE: Make a pair of fancy glasses, then pretend you are at the opera while reading DIVA DELORES AND THE OPERA HOUSE MOUSE at Celebrate Picture Books.
TWO: Do a book-themed Read, Discuss, DO!
THREE: Discuss what it means to be a diva, then make a feathered fan like Delores uses in the book with this project created by Rebecca Gomez.
FOUR: Spark even more meaningful book-themed conversation using these seven teacher-approved discussion starters.
FIVE: Extend the story with a DIVA DELORES AND THE OPERA HOUSE MOUSE coloring page and writing prompt.
SIX: Read the story, then create your own Delores and Fernando puppets inspired by illustrator Rebecca Gerlings puppet activity.
SEVEN: Teach a lesson on RESPECT with Diva Delores and Fernando.
EIGHT: Organize an eight-book opera-themed story time featuring Diva Delores plus seven other fabulous titles!
NINE: Create colorful tissue paper bouquets just like Delores longs for in the story.
TEN: Have your kids draw pictures of their favorite scenes/characters and then share on your socials using the hashtag #divadeloresandtheoperahousemouse.
