Remember That Naughty Girl?
My kids love this character and can't wait to describe her. They love to talk about how naughty she is and all the poor choices she makes by entering a stranger's home. It is so much fun to listen to them carry on about her! However, the boys defended her and justified her decision to go in the cottage by suggesting she was hungry and tired. Some of the children told me she was snoopy and nosey but I wanted to introduce the word curious because it's such a great vocabulary word. Someone finally suggested it and we practiced drawing her. The following day they wrote about her. One student turned her into a princess because she thought she was so beautiful. This is a great opportunity to talk about real and make-believe. For a 5 year old the lines are often fuzzy...
