The Smartest Giant in Town by Julia Donaldson

Hello everyone!

This week’s story is by Julia Donaldson and one we read often in class.  This story is about a very kind giant who looks after his friends by giving them the clothes off his back!  It makes him very happy to help others.  Christmas time is called the season of giving and the giant in our story certainly does that.  At Christmas we give gifts to friends and family (and Santa of course).  A gift can be doing something nice for someone just like George the Giant.  What nice thing could you do today?  Could you tidy up your toys really quickly or maybe get dressed all by yourself?  Those are really kind and helpful things to do.

There are lots of rhymes in this story.  Keep a tally again and see how many rhyming pairs you can count.  Is it a bigger or smaller number than the other rhyming books we’ve listened to?  You could make a ‘story sack’ or bag.  Gather the things that George gave to his friends, such as a shirt, a sock, a shirt, etc.  Can you act out the story?  Have you got any soft toys or small world animals like those in the story?  You could put these into your bag as well.  Don’t forget to make a crown!

Until next time, do good looking for adventures, clean your ears out for good listening and turn your noggins (brains) on for good learning.

Take care stay  safe, and enjoy the long weekend!
