The Tale of Peter Rabbit

One of the best video series I have ever viewed with Beaitrix Potter stories is  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MisrUJX3QGU&feature=related  By the end of the video just about every child in my class was speaking with a British accent, which was pretty interesting.  You may think that Peter Rabbit would be below their interest level, but I have always found the opposite response.  There is something almost calming about these simple stories.  Some of our activities included writing character traits for Peter, reading the play of Peter Rabbit (http://www.kidsinco.com/2008/07/the-tale-of-peter-rabbit/), text to self/text to text/text to world, and a creative writing project on how we disobeyed our parents.
