Stick Man is a popular story that is loosely connected to Christmas. Santa makes an appearance towards the end! Follow Stick Man on his adventure to get back to his family in the Family Tree in time for Christmas.
Penguin is not directly related to Christmas but it is a fabulous story that could easily be tied in with the theme. For those of you who don’t like to overdo Xmas, it’s a good choice to tie-in with the season while still allowing you to focus on other aspects of the story or language.
These crafts and activities to complement Stick Man by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler support learning of topic vocabulary such as people, family, feelings and seasons AND help you focus on expressing purpose language. This pack also provides comprehensive activity suggestions to help you provide exposure to useful grammar and phrases in the story. Many of the resources in this pack are also available individually.
