It’s Monday! What are you reading?
Each week I share at least one reading photo of the week. Don’t you just love this little reader in his Pjs (pyjama day) surrounded by Toon comics?
Our #classroombookaday titles were our second week of #MockCaldecott titles
Now we are ready for more in depth discussion and analysis
We loved having our Let’s Talk Science volunteers come in to talk changing states of matter with us. We learned what sublimation means by exploring dry ice.
In math, we have been investigating multiplication. This table explored 24 and made arrays and matching equations.
I love the classroom when it is full of readers – little buddies from the K class came to read!
Join Jen from Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee and Ricki from Unleashing Readers and share all of the reading you have done over the week from picture books to young adult novels. Follow the links to read about all of the amazing books the #IMWAYR community has read. It’s the best way to discover what to read next.
Books I enjoyed:
Marigold & Daisy by Andrea Zuill
A charming little read about new sibling envy. These snails are adorably hilarious.
Watersong by Tim McCanna with illustrations by Richard Smythe
This is onomatopoeia at its best! Vivid illustrations accompany these gorgeous sounds.
There’s a Snake in my School written by David Walliams and illustrated by Tony Ross
When it’s pet day . . . This snake is a whole lot of fun for everyone. Well maybe not for that grumpy headmistress!
Earth! My First 4.54 Billion Years written by Stacy McAnulty and illustrated by David Litchfield
Earth tells its story = perfect to answer and inspire questions for curious kids!
A List of Cages by Robin Roe
This is definitely YA. Heartbreaking. I adored both main characters. One of those titles you just can’t put down. Friendship, care and compassion alongside some pretty horrific cruelty and abuse.
Up next? I am reading Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus
