Not Norman – A Goldfish Story

This is a lovely story about a little boy who  gets a goldfish for his birthday and he is rather unimpressed. See below for the link to the online story the children listened to.

Not Norman – A Goldfish Story

Over time his feelings and emotions about Norman vary greatly so I thought it was a good chance for the Preps and Year 1s to show their ability to understand the feelings of a book’s characters. The children were given the array of emotion pictures seen below to record how they thought Norman was feeling throughout the story. With a bit of guidance and listening to the story twice, all of the students put in a good effort to complete the task. I think the most fun part was reviewing which emotion each face represented and getting the children to act them out!
