Rosie lives in a farmyard. Each morning, Rosie sets off on a walk across the farm. She is unaware that a sly fox is following her.
Let’s Read ‘Rosie’s Walk’ by Pat Hutchins
Notice how the pictures are illustrated. There are lines, patterns and shapes on the different characters and the environment.
- You might want to act out the story using your own animals or props. You can even use boxes, cushions and blankets and any other suitable props to create a farmyard to go on your own walk. You can go across, around, over, past, through, and under. Your own story can be in a different place such as a forest, an island or even a city. You might want to act out your story in the park or on the playground!
- You might want to draw your own maps. You may want to include trees, walkways, houses, vehicles or people.
We would love to hear about your adventures, see your maps and creations!
