Library Lion

Each year with my new class of Preps I love to read The Library Lion by Michelle Knudsen. LibraryLion-259x300

It’s great for teaching them the rules of the library and they always jump when I do the lion’s roar. After reading the book we use the electronic whiteboard to match images from the book to the emotion the characters are feeling.

Then we finish by making our own lion mask. My assistant made a template which we photocopy onto yellow paper and pre-cut for them. They then decorate it. We tried tying it around their heads with elastic but the paper kept tearing. We decided to get the kids to tape a paddle pop stick to the back to create a hand-held mask instead.
