Children’s books – lesson ideas – resources 2

23 Oct

I have just realized that I have created a post like this about a year ago! Well I guess I can keep going as over the years I have added more ‘favorite’ stories to my collection!

My small collection!













1. Are we there yet ? (Alison Lester)

are we there yet










Most of the ones I found were for primary children: (this link has so many wonderful teacher support notes for many books!) (this is another one with lots of notes for lots of books)

2. A squash and a squeeze (Julia Donaldson)








 (TES is free to join and the lessons have been created by teachers and for teachers! ) ( youtube song clip) (Printable word labels for the story)


3. Big Rain coming (Katrina Germein)

I will keep going over the next few weeks putting up more stories and resources.



Aboriginal/Indigenous activities : You me : our place

13 May

Here I am back again! Finally

I have been doing a lot of relief teaching.

So two things I noticed

1. 20,000 people have looked at my ramblings! So a big thank you!

2. Most of the inquiries were about indigenous activities for children, and to be honest these are the very same things I look for myself!

So I was delighted to come across this wonderful book You me : Our place

Such a wonderful book written by Leonie Norrington and illustrated by Dee Huxley

I have yet to have the joy of sharing this book with children but I decided to add some online activities I found and then add my own experiences as a later date!


2. This is lovely as you get to learn about the author and what inspires her!

3. a lovely review written by Susan Stephenson

I look forward to adding my own ideas soon!
