Product Description

Is there a better message to explore with your pupils than, 'dance to your own music'? With Travelling Tales: Giraffes Can't Dance, you can plan a series of cross-curricular lessons centred around a quality text that provides pupils a healthy message about self-confidence and breaking down stereotypes.

Gerald is a giraffe who loves to dance. But upon approaching the dance floor at the Jungle Dance, the other animals laugh at the very thought of a Giraffe dancing. Fortunately, Gerald's confidence is bolstered by a friendly cricket who tells him to 'dance to your own music'.

The Travelling Tales series are a one-stop shop for all your storytelling resource needs, and this one is no exception. You can give your voice a rest and let someone else read the story to your pupils with the included audio book CD. A plush giraffe and a printed story mat can also be used by you and your pupils to re-tell the story in a memorable way. The range of cross-curricular resources in this Travelling Tales story sack can be used to help pupils make connections between what they learn and read as well as encourage less enthused readers.

  • Have all the resources and inspiration needed to plan effective storytelling lessons using Giraffes Can't Dance as the focus.
  • Help pupils make connections in their learning using the cross-curricular activities and ideas included in this bank of resources.
  • Inspire and excite you pupils about reading and encourage them to explore themes of self-confidence.
