Thank you to @scholasticbookclubs and my school PTO for helping me add books to my family read aloud bins. 😍 I’m always looking for new, fabulous books, especially Spanish, and I got just that!
Each year our PTO gives us some money to buy things for our classroom. I often use that money💵 to buy books 📚. I mean that’s really the best thing I could ever buy for my classroom. #amiright
My mom lifts me up -- figuratively and literally (as you can see in the last picture).
One of the ways she instilled confidence in me at a young age was by giving me my own library of books filled with Black kids going on adventures, learning life lessons, and taking up space in the world.
To celebrate the joy of Black childhood, we've stocked up on kids' books. We have over 200 to choose from.
DM us if you're interested in building a children's or young adult library.
Big kids love read alouds, too! On hectic, end of the school year days, it's always great to spend a few moments with one of my favorite books and some of my favorite people. The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig has so many opportunities to practice literary skills, but honestly it's freaking adorable, and we read it just because. #middleschoolersarethebestschoolers
Anyone use these “Fairy Tale Fixers” that include #STEM activities throughout the story? I’m working on a lesson about fairy tale elements and wanted to give this retelling of the classic story, Princess & the Pea, a try. The reader stops throughout the story to help problem-solve the princess out of her predicaments (swipe left to see inside). Other Fairy Tale Fixers include: Goldilocks, Jack & the Beanstalk and Rapunzel. 🥰 These would be a great addition to any fairy tale unit or even summer reading activities! I found this one on Amazon-affiliate link is in my profile🧚♀️. #picturebooks#childrensbooks#stemeducation
This week's library haul winner is..."Mouse House!" By John Burningham. It is about a family of mice living in a home, very much like fairies or borrowers and the human children who try and help protect them from extermination. This was especially relatable this week because the summer ant battle has begun. We do #BLW baby led weaning, so four times a day baby Willow redecorates our house with berries, brocoli, you know whatever is on the menu. It does entice ants. River has decided she wants to adopt the ants and "love them forever" despite our insistence that we cannot allow an ant colony to set up in our kitchen. As a result of this ongoing Ant Saga River was very emotionally involved with this mouse story, she agreed that the children ought to care for them. It was an unusual story, with intruiging art and an underlying heart of empathy and care for living things. I liked the book. I am not crazy about the ants though.
How do you explain removing pests and simultaneously teach empathy for living things?
