‘The Wolf Who Wouldn’t Go to School’ is a rhyming book. Rhyming teaches children how language works. It helps them notice and work with the sounds within words. When children are familiar with a rhyming book, they learn to anticipate the rhyming word. This prepares them to make predictions when they read, another important reading skill.
Today, we are reading a wonderful story about Whiffy Wilson, an adorable wolf who is really worried about going to school. Whiffy Wilson doesn’t know how to hold a pen and has never looked in a book, but fortunately, his friend Dotty is on hand to show him that school is fun. Soon, Whiffy is in his element, and when he gets a gold star for all his work he realises that school is the best thing ever!
After listening to the story, why not involve your child into a discussion on how they feel returning to nursery? What have they missed most about their nursery environment? Snacktime, storytime or playing with their friends? This is a lovely story to support children in their return to the nursery environment.
Enjoy listening to the book read by Katy!
