It's All About Those Characters, Those Characters...

This week we are exploring story elements.  Today we read the story, The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson  If you haven't read this story, do it!  It is fantastic for describing character traits.  

After reading the story we worked together to describe The Gruffalo.  The kids did a great job drawing their interpretations of The Gruffalo and adding details.    


Attached I have included The Gruffalo page we used as well as a blank character page.  

I think this is going to be a fun week! Happy Monday!


  1. This looks like such an engaging experience. I have not heard of this book but will be sure to check it out! Thanks for sharing, Diana!

    1. Thank you Marie, it was a fun day in K. The kids just love that book. If you decide to read it with your class there is also a video on Vimeo that we found that was a nice follow up to the story. :)
