Our class story is “Once Upon A Dragon’s Fire” written by Beatrice Blue. It is about a dragon that is feared by the villagers until they discover that it is a lonely dragon who wants to share warmth and love.
We have listened to the story several times and used it to inspire our role play area as well as our “powerful” vocabulary collecting. There have been playdough dragons with long spikes and bumpy scales, dark cave creating, interesting golden word collecting, mask making and much more!
The villager’s socks were blown up to the mountain in a fierce storm so we helped the dragon to wash them, pair them, count them and get them ready to return to the people below.
