Jayne, at ABCs of Reading, just turned me on to this wonderful new book, Can’t Sleep Without Sheep, by Susanna Leonard Hill.
The little girl counts sheep each night to help her sleep. But it takes her soooo long that the sheep get tired and try to find some new animals for her to count.
1.Jayne has a very cool drama lesson to go with the book. Be sure to check it out.
2. Here’s a writing activity I made up. I thought the kids could write about a different animal to count in their sleep and then do a chalk drawing of the animal on black paper. The cloud writing could be glued below.
3. I love these sentence scrambler sheets, because not only are the kids practicing a sight word in a variety of ways, but they’re also meaningfully engaged while I pull a Guided Reading group.
