If You Take a Mouse to School Preschool and Kindergarten activities and crafts. If you take a Mouse to school, first he'll ask you for your lunchbox -- and then he'll want to get his paws on everything, from spelling and math to a messy science experiment. You will find a weekly plan to help children get familiar with their classroom environment and their school with engaging activities and games. Getting back into the swing of school is this month's theme with the help of the little mouse. Welcome children back to the classroom with school-related subject matter that builds literacy, develops vocabulary, instills math concepts, and inspires dramatic play and movement activities. 

Here are some samples of our more than 90 If You Take a Mouse to School activities, games, and crafts for preschool and kindergarten:
