There are a few things I wanted to share with everyone before I venture off tomorrow!
The other month I emailed the author of the "Biscuit" books. If you don't use these books in your classroom for your struggling readers you should! My kids ADORE the books. It is now at the point that they ask to bring them out during.....RECESS. It is a teachers dream to hear those sentences!
I decided to email her after my teacher BFF did and got a response back. So, I told her all about my students and how her books have enabled my struggling readers to feel like they are reading big kid books, while still reading on their level. She emailed me back a lovely response and then a few days later.....we got this!
|Six brand new books for us plus a new Earth Day book!|
|A letter to us about why she is a writer!!|
So, as you can see she sent us a cool Earth Day book with Biscuit. We will be reading it tomorrow and then completing this writing activity.
THEN....we are heading outside for our Earth Day picnic! We are eating on towels, and then playing with bubbles, jump ropes, flag football, and other stuff! Ms. Simoneaux and I will also be face painting! I cannot wait!
Hope the rest of your week is great!
