Russell the Sheep


Rob Scotton’s Russell the Sheep is an amazing book to read with kindergarteners.┬áThe language is just right for them and the pictures are very silly. In a continuing effort to incorporate math throughout the curriculum, I used this book to practice counting. Russell counts sheep in the book to try and fall asleep, so I had kindergarteners count the sheep as I handed out blank pictures of sheep for them to color. Each sheep had a number on it, and I displayed them in order in my library. The kids loved having their own number and getting to color (of course.) Just an idea that worked well with my kids!
