Russell the Sheep by Rob Scotton ~Lexile 300

Russell the Sheep by Rob Scotton is filled with oodles of literacy activities that can be used for many grade levels.  I have said before that I think anything Rob Scotton writes is golden and this is another amazing treasure!

Book jacket summary:
This is Russell.  Sometimes Russell is just a little bit out of step with the rest of the flock.  All the sheep are falling asleep-except Russell.  What's a sheep to do?  Russell tries everything...until at last he falls asleep.
I have used several literacy activities with this book.  Two of my favorites are a long vowel e sort and a cause and effect chain.

We were going to make our cause and effect chain pretty by gluing it on construction paper, but we ran out of time.  It turned out quite nice anyway!
