My kids absolutely love the classic storybook “Harry the Dirty Dog”. We’ve read it so many times that I’m pretty sure they can recite it by heart. Backwards.
Reading the story is a wonderful way to practice early literacy and to spend some storytime with the kids, but I wanted to add a few story extension activities that included early math and reading also.
And that’s why I’m sharing these fun Harry the Dirty Dog printables for kids today!
These are so much fun for helping early learners practice writing, reading, and math concepts that relate to the storybook!
Read on to see how to get your copy!
And, for more fun with Harry the Dirty Dog, check out our simple “Clean the Dirty Dog” extension activity for toddlers!
Harry the Dirty Dog Printables
- Printer (with ink)
- Printer Paper
- Child-safe scissors
- Laminator (optional)
- A copy of Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion
In this set of ten early learning printables, you’ll find:
- Two tracing practice worksheets
- One match the numeral to the set worksheet
- Ten number flashcards
- One match the word to the picture worksheet
- And one word tracing worksheet
All of the printables relate to the story in some way.
There are even tracing printables that let you help get muddy Harry to the bathtub! (Which finally happens at the end of the story.)
These would be great for preschoolers and kindergartners who are ready to tackle early literacy skills!
And, if you’re ready to work on number recognition with your toddler, the number flashcards would be perfect!
Personally, I prefer to laminate flashcards when I use them with my kids. Makes them last longer.
And for the tracing skills, you can let kids use crayons, jumbo pencils, or even highlighters to improve fine motor skills!
