My Weekend Warrior gals and I have joined forces this month to bring you some exciting read aloud favorites AND amazing giveaways!
I love Read Across America week! We celebrate the love of literacy the first week of March every year at my school. We get crazy and goofy all week! One activity I just love is having each child take a picture with our red frame and red and white striped inspired hat. They each pick their favorite book to hold up too. The kids love taking these home at the end of the week.
We also have a read around one day during the week. Each teacher picks their favorite 10-15 minute read aloud book. Then, the teachers rotate to the different classrooms and share their story with the different grade levels. We pair K-2 and 3-5 together for this activity. The kids LOVE having the different teachers come into the room to read. This year I plan on reading:
I LOVE reading A Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon! This book is awesome to show cause and effect to children. The illustrations are captivating and the story is simply entertaining. I think all 6 and 7 year olds can relate to this store in one way or another. I usually have many cause and effect follow up activities with this book. I won't have time during the read around, but I will do them with my kiddos later on.
And now, let's get to most anticipated part of this post:
