Why We Plan to Enjoy The Wizard of Oz
The Wizard of Oz is a timeless treasure. My first love of this tale came at an early age when I happened to catch the replay of the movie on T.V. As I grew older, I read the book and continued to revisit this movie. I knew that I’d enjoy sharing this gem with my children.
One day while browsing our local library’s resale shop, I was lucky to discover a double book (The Wizard of Oz on one end and The Jungle Book on the flip side) for only ten cents! Two classics for a dime! That book (along with three other similar styles) was quickly deposited into my bag.
I placed this book on one of our bookshelves with the thought of using it for a read-aloud very soon. Well, like most things on my absent-minded professor-like desk and bookcases, it got buried under papers, “treasures”, and other books.
A few months later, my boys and I were chatting one day about favorite books that were turned into movies. Naturally, I brought up The Wizard of Oz.
The boys reminded me that we still hadn’t read the book nor watched the movie. Oh my stars! I couldn’t let such a lapse in our learning transpire any longer!
Learning Fun With The Wizard of Oz
I added The Wizard of Oz to the top of our read-aloud list. As soon as we finished our prior read aloud, we cracked open our book (a bit musty but well-loved) and dug in. The boys and I soon became lost in the story, following Dorothy and her pals as they learn about each other and themselves.
I created this printable pack for Wizard of Oz Learning Fun to help us extend our time with this wonderful story and its characters.
In this free printable pack, you’ll find:
- 1 page of characters & objects from the story. We use these as part of our read-aloud time by cutting each out and gluing to popsicle sticks. Other options include laminating and adding velcro or magnets to use for storytime boards.
- 1 page of Wizard of Oz Word Scramble
- 4 pages of coloring fun. There are four blocks per page that can be used to form a mini-book.
- 1 page for a fun Wizard of Oz maze
These printable activities are fabulous for:
- Classroom Fun
- Library Events
- Homeschool Co-Op
- Homeschool Fun
- Family Fun
- Wizard of Oz-themed party
