Today we read the story called There was a Wee Lassie who swallowed a Midgie. We loved reading about the different things the Lassie swallowed to try to catch the Midgie (although we never learned why she swallowed the midgie so squashy and squidgy). We learned the names of two different kinds of birds, a puffin and an eagle. We thought the puffin looked a little like a penguin (that’s another kind of bird) so we compared them and learned that puffins have orange feet and legs and that we couldn’t see the penguins legs at all! Puffins’ beaks are shorter than penguin beaks too. The Lassie swallowed a trout too, that’s a kind of fish and we knew that fish like to swim in the water. The Lassie also swallowed Nessie! Nessie looks like a dinosaur but she swims like the trout.
We printed off pictures of all the things the Lassie swallowed and sorted them then laid them out in the right order.
So lovely to see this! If you’re looking for any colouring sheets for the children, there are some at my website at the end of the Teacher’s Guide for this book. Thanks for sharing Wee Lassie with the children who attend your nursery!
Thanks Rebecca, I’ll take a look. The children were enthralled with the story so additional resources will be useful 👍🏻
