Students get to cozy up on the floor with blankets and pillows and be read to. This could be a regular Friday treat reading one story per week. I don’t usually like to break up reading a book, but since each chapter is it’s own story, they would be understood on their own.
Using the Videos
Many of these stories also have amazing animated videos retell the story. These videos can be found here. An example can be found below. If you would like to access all of the videos, you can pay a very small fee for a membership for a year, which would be well worth it for teaching the book. The combination of story and video could be its own mini unit. There are even target structures mentioned in the video that could be focused on. The videos could be used Movie Talk style in class, or give extra visual and audio support and repetition of the story.
