Julia Donaldson's Gruffalo is a story with lots of humor, cool rhymes and text. It is a great story to act out with funny voices. Check out these DIY: Wooden spoon Gruffalo puppets. How cute and easy for small hands to use!
I love this writing center. Although we don't duplicate traditional school in our home, this center appeals to me--or maybe it's appealing to the former language arts teacher in me! It just makes me want to sit down and write, and I think it would do the same for kids!
