Giraffes Can’t Dance, by Giles Andreae, is one of our favourite stories and a really good book to use in the classroom. I read the book with my Year 6 class and we enjoyed loads of discussion on all sorts of things, sharing the fantastic illustrations under our visualiser.
Reading with RIC has recently been introduced at our school so, as a class, we then completed a comprehension on Giraffes Can’t Dance using RIC.
If you would like to use the book in class (which I strongly advise for lots of reasons), you can download the questions I wrote for my class below;
If you use the questions, or have any other ideas for using this book in the classroom, share them in the comments below.
