Description

This highly engaging companion to the books, The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo's Child,
includes crafts, ELA activities, measurement tasks, recipes, & other exciting ideas! Your students will love this unit created to use after studying these fabulous books.

Julia Donaldson has quickly become a favorite author of mine. Her books are amazing and the movies that go along with them are spectacular! I spent a long time perfecting this resource and making sure that I had every activity I could think of to build student engagement and excitement. I am so proud of this resource and how it inspired my kids.

You would need a week or two if you want to get to every activity included.

I used this in my kindergarten classroom but it would work for many grade levels.

You can see more photos and explanations of all of the activities by visiting my blog here:
