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.
