In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
If an elephant went to school by Ellen Fischer, illustrated by Laura Wood – Release date: July 21st, 2015- I love the repeatative text this book has, lends not only to a wonderful read aloud experience for children but additionally a mentor text that has writing extension opportunities. Also, there could be a fun research writing extension for younger classes, for example: children could choose another animal to ask a question about and do a little research to share an unique feature of the animal in a rhyming way.
Companion book to: “If an Armadillo Went to a Restaurant”
Goodreads Summary: “Would an elephant learn the ABCs if she went to school? No way! She would learn to use her trunk as a nose, a straw, a hand, and a hose!
Through a series of questions and answers, readers learn about animals and their unique behaviors. And in the end, you might find yourself asking just what would you learn.”
