- A gruffalo? What's a gruffalo?
- A gruffalo! Why,…
Who doesn't like stories about magic and witches? Especially if they describe the adventures of the funny Winnie the witch and her cat, Wilbur.
Winnie's house is an excellent story, it is not only amusing but also a great choice for English language learning. My daughter learned a good many words and phrases such as roof, carpet, floor, stairs, bath, miserable, trip over, bush, laugh, Wilbur, get off the bed! She did that in a really short period of time so I highly recommend Winnie's stories. Kids can watch them on YouTube or they can read the books if they are old enough to do so.
We made a Winnie's House lapbook with picture cards, word cards, Winnie and Wilbur paper crafts, Winnie's house pictures and a special coded sentences Winnie's House book.
We use the lapbook for dramatic play, vocabulary revision and reading the story together ( I read the text, my daughter the pictures).
