A Bed, a Princess and a Tiny Pea

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 Princess and the Pea

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. 
  • talked about rituals and routines for bedtime
  • made some cookies using stars cutters. We ate some and took the rest home.
  • read different versions of the story
  • used the vocabulary cards to review and practice vocabulary
  • dipped star-shaped cookie cutters in yellow and white paint and stamp on blue and black construction paper.
  • used the necklace to recal the events of the story. 
  • sorted the words by beginning sounds, syllables, short or long words
  • graphed what time kids went to sleep every night
  • made puppets with craft sticks to sequence events 
  • measured our shadows standing in the same place at different times of day.
  • estimated how many peas there were in a can
  • learned a poem 
Time for Bed
Time for bed, time for bed
Fluff up the pillow,
Lay down your head.
Pull up the blanket,
Tuck it in tight.
Close your eyes
And sleep all night
  • sang a new song
Making Shadows
Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle
I make shadows big and small
I make shadows on the wall
Shadows here, shadows there
Shadows, shadows everywhere
I make shadows in the sun
I make shadows late at night
Shadows here, shadows there
Shadows, shadows everywhere
