It is probably the teacher in me that wants to add story props to every children's book that we own. I find that it always adds a magic of it's own to an already enchanted story when I introduce tangible items to my preschool students.
I find that it always adds a magic of it's own to an already enchanted story when I introduce tangible items to my preschool students.This year I'm giving Ramona one of my favourite books, The Mitten by Jan Brett, along with these wooden animals to tell the story. I was so excited that I spent part of nap time the other day photographing these wild animals amidst the growing pile of foraged juniper and evergreen branches, and other traces of Christmas, on my dresser. I can hardly wait to share this beautiful story with her.
