Cool Shades for Cool Friends – A Fun & Free Activity!

Featuring Ziggy and ALL of your favorite friends from All About Learning Press

Ziggy is throwing a Summer Celebration Party, and you are invited!

EVERYONE is going to be there—Rocket, Herman, Bumble, Coco—the whole All About Reading and All About Spelling gang! What makes this party really special, though, is the “Cool Shades for Cool Friends” Sunglasses Style Show, and your student gets to be the judge!

Who will have the coolest and the silliest shades? Will it be Melinda? Or Elwood? Or maybe Cha-Cha has something spectacular to go with her new blue hue?

Find out, and enjoy some fun in the sun with good friends playing this new reading and spelling review activity from All About Learning Press.

Instructions for “Cool Shades for Cool Friends”

  1. Download and print out the sunglasses and character cards.
  2. Cut out the reading word cards for the level at which you are teaching or the blank spelling cards and choose the spelling words you’d like to practice. (Print the cards back-to-back or tape/glue separate sheets together.)
  3. Scatter the cards on the floor or on your table with the illustrations facing down.
  4. Have your student choose a card and read or spell the given word.
  5. Turn the card over to reveal the sunglasses and find the matching character.

Which Characters Did Your Student Choose?

Share your student’s choices of which characters had the coolest and silliest sunglasses in the comments below—and yours too! We would also love to hear about the fun you had together with your student during this activity.

Add a comment below, post fun photos on our social media pages, and, as always, you are welcome to share this activity with a friend.

Keep reading and spelling all summer long!
