Grumpy Cat

grumpy cat

Grumpy Cat by Britta Teckentrup

Simple text & illustrations. Great for junior primary.

After reading students can:
– Write what made the cat so grumpy, what makes them grumpy & what they would do to cheer the cat up.
– On a simple cat head shaped piece of card, they can make a 2 sided picture of the cat – 1 side grumpy, 1 side happy.
-Can create either a mask or a puppet with their 2 sided picture.
– Discuss how ignoring or leaving someone out can make them sad. What can they do if they see someone sad or by themselves in the playground.
– Role play using puppets/masks
