Too many elephants - freebies

Australia's National Simultaneous Storytime Day is on 21 May and the text is 
"Too Many Elephants in This House" by Ursula Dubosarsky.
Click on the image above to read more about this text at the author's website.  
A YouTube read aloud is available here.

Find more ideas for Australia's National Simultaneous Storytime Day here and here and ideas for sharing this book here.

Other ideas can be found at this blog post from The Education Clinic.  

I have pinned ideas around elephants that could tie in with the sharing of this picture book here. I just love this YouTube clip of an elephant that joins in playing jazz on the piano.

"Elmer" would be a terrific companion text for this picture book.  View the YouTube clip by clicking on this link.

This elephant paper craft activity is just gorgeous.

Older students could research the ivory trade or the meanings of sayings such as "an elephant in the room", or "you have a memory like an elephant".  They could write persuasive texts about the ivory trade, circus elephants or elephants in captivity.  Please share any other ideas in the comments section below.

I have created a resource to support this book.  It will be free at my TPT store for a short time.

You can grab your copy by clicking on the image below.  If you download it, please leave feedback in my TPT store :)  Please also follow my blog (using the links in the right hand comment) to accept this giveaway.
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did!  

Many thanks to Iva from etsy for her fabulous clip art.  Please check out her work here
