Students Recommend Picture Books
Lilly (5th grade) recommends Cock-a-doodle-doo, Creak, Pop- pop, Moo by Jim Aylesworth. Lilly says, "I liked the clever, rhyming words and the pictures were really detailed."
One of Brynlee's (2nd grade) favorite picture books was Mr. Putter and Tabby. She says, "I liked how Mr. Putter and Tabby always had new adventures and went to different places."
Michael (3rd grade) enjoyed the Dr. Seuss books the most, including Ten Apples Up On Top! He says, "I thought it was funny how all the animals competed against each other to see who could carry the most apples on their head."
First Graders Enjoy Holiday Cookies
Our second read-aloud was Christmas Cookies: Bite-Size Holiday Lessons by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. It is a charming book of life lessons for kids with a holiday theme and a focus on the act of baking cookies. Our students learned many new vocabulary words with this book like perseverance, charitable, reciprocation, traditions, and sharing. The best part of the lesson was getting to sample cookies at the end of class! Finally, students took the recipe for cookies that was included in the Rosenthal book home with them. It is included in the link below. Enjoy!
