The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane - supporting resources

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane - supporting resources

Used at year4 but suitable for older children - language a bit too advanced for younger year groups. Built on the shoulders of giants - I had seen other resources from other contributors - but I don't think I have stolen anything! The worksheets are entirely my own creations:-) I no longer have access to SMART technology nor PUBLISHER - so can't check those docs or the links therein:-( I am now retired so there probably won't be updates - hope this helps to save you some time. oh, and DON'T show the youtube interviews first!
