Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam - Enterprise in the Classroom

Tracy Corderoy and Steven Lenton's story, Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam, is a rollicking good fun picture book about two light-fingered dogs. The book has been included in the 2016 Read Write Count primary 2 bag, and we're delighted to present this special activity pack from classroom teacher Joy Cameron to help you explore the book in the classroom.

This inspiring resource has two fantastic ideas for enterprise projects, plus some other creative activities to help develop skills in literacy and expressive arts. Although the activities are inspired by Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam, it's still worth a look even if you don't own copies of the book, as many activities could be transferred to other contexts.

Tracy and Steven will also be appearing in our free, digital Authors Live event on 27 October 2016. Don't worry if you miss the live event - you'll be able to watch it later in our Watch on Demand section.
