The Napping House and Freebie

The Napping House (Board book)

The Napping House by Audrey and Don Wood is a wonderful book.  The repetitive phrases make it great for beginning/struggling readers.  The remarkable illustrations bring the story to life.  
Kizclub has story patterns that can be printed on cardstock and laminated.  Attach a magnet on the back so that students can use the pieces to retell the story.  
Audrey Wood's website has coloring pages.
Carol Hurst has great ideas for using the book.
Here is a 10 page idea booklet for using the book by Itty Bitty Bookworm.

I like using the book to teach synonyms.  The author uses them and it makes the story fun!  Here is an activity sheet for students to make their own synonyms.
