Princess Diaries 

Joe: Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent.

Mia: Eleanor Roosevelt said that.

 Joe: Ah, yes. Another special lady like yourself.

It’s always interesting where one first hears a quote. I first heard this quote watching Princess Diaries! I still love that movie – my nan and I must have watched it dozens of times. And I still love the quote.

Be Our Guest

I just saw a fabulous movie with fabulous company. So grateful to have the privilege of watching Emma Watson as Belle. Incredible. Loved hanging out with my gal pals. Very grateful to have you three in my life. #grateful💖 #anorchidsview #beautyandthebeast #beourguest #emmawatson 

The Little Mermaid

This is a Disney classic. Growing up I wished I was a mermaid so that I could explore the ocean just like  Ariel. It is still a favourite of mine – after all this time – and now it is also a favourite of my students. They enjoy the brightly coloured animations, the songs and  the music, and of course the story of young love.

Beauty and the Beast

This is a beautiful story and movie. It is one of my favourites. The songs are magical, the animations are vibrant and the tale is engaging. My students adore this film and the story books that go with it.


I have included a link to the read along version of the story.

Monsters Inc.

My nephew who just turned one, adores this story. I found it an amusing movie and my students have also enjoyed watching it during their break times. We have read the Disney Story Book of this tale as well – it is fun. I think they mainly enjoy my silly voices and pretend growls! (lots of giggles, but maybe at me lol)


I have attached a template that I drew that can be used for art and craft activities.
