A Wolf, a Granny and a Red Little Hood

One of our school annual projects is working crosscurricular in our EFL/ ESL classes.

So, these are some of the activities we did at school while reading The Little Red Riding Hood

We ..

made predictions. The kids looked at the cover of the book and told what they think the story would be about. 

went on a picture walk through the book. We didn't read the text, just looked at each picture and told what they thought is happening in each picture.

cololored the cover of our folder. 
created a disguise for the wolf and voted for the best disguise 

saw pictures of some forest animals and answered questions such as What animals do we find in the forest? Which ones are dangerous? Which ones are loud? 

graphed our favorite forest animal 

read different versions of the story 

used the vocabulary cards to review and practice vocabulary 

used the necklace to recall the events of the story.
used paper bags to make puppets

made sandwiches and use leaf cookie cutters to create leaf shaped sandwiches 

sorted the words by beginning sounds, syllables, short or long words 

estimated how many cookies there are in a jar 

made puppets with craft sticks to sequence events 

finished the sentence Wolf's eyes are...

learned a poem

Tickle Tree
This is my tickle tree,
As you can plainly see,
It will tickle you,
As it has tickled me.
So if you are not careful, this little tickle tree,
Will make you say Hee, Hee, Hee. 

used ziplock bags to make animal's habitats for example make an ocean in a bag. Take a ziplock bag, and add blue hair gel, sand, and real sea shells. 
played a tape of forest sounds 
looked for pictures of forest animals and then let the children sorted the animal pictures into groups of animals of the same color, size, kind.
