For this week’s Book Club playdate we have been reading Llama Llama Red Pajama, by Anna Dewdney.


There are several stories in the Llama Llama series, but this was the first that we have read. It features Baby Llama waiting for Mama Llama – and getting a little bit impatient! Lots of opportunity for dramatic reading and the book has a lovely message to it as well. My son enjoyed reading the book with me, pointing out the words that he knew.Roll-a-Llama Game - a free printable to go with any of the "Llama, Llama" books!

One small issue with the book was that F didn’t really know what a llama was, and said it looked a bit like a horse. A horse with a long neck, I said! So I made up this fun “roll-a-llama” game to get him familiar with this animal! It also works on number skills (the die), fine motor skills (positioning the pieces) and reading skills (because I haven’t included a picture of the body part words!).Roll-a-Llama Game - a free printable to go with any of the "Llama, Llama" books!

If you’d also like to play the game with your kids, you’ll need:

  • Roll-A-Llama game, free download to print available from the Craftulate Shop
  • White card
  • Scissors
  • Die (we used a big foam one from the dollar store!)

Print out both pages of the game. Cut out the individual body parts. Set everything out with a die and you are ready to play!Roll-a-Llama Game - a free printable to go with any of the "Llama, Llama" books!

 

My son did fairly well reading the body parts, although struggled with “neck” and “ears”.

 

I’m pretty sure he knows more about llamas now!Roll-a-Llama Game - a free printable to go with any of the "Llama, Llama" books!
