Read Across America 2022:)
Your teachers have been working hard to prepare lots of good stories & discussions as part of Read Across America celebrations. I wanted to share some of my favorite books with you, too! I hope you & your families find time to read together during this week & beyond.
Did you have a favorite vocabulary word from the Annoying ABC by Barbara Bottner? I like the part where Zelda Zapped...everyone.
Have you ever seen something so cute, so adorably wonderful, so flurfitty-snugglerpilly that you wanted to explode? It is super duper fun to make sound effects when you read books like Fluffy McWhiskers Cuteness Explosion by Stephen W. Martin!
So did you decide what actually happened to the rabbit in I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen? Yep, there's a few possibilities...
Follow these directions to make an origami hat from a piece of paper.
What was your favorite plant that grew in Evan's garden from The Rough Patch by Brian Lies. March is a great time to begin planning a garden for your window box, yard or school grounds!
Caregivers & educators can check out more resources from Sesame Street in Communities.
Do you have a pet, plant or special stuffed animal at home or in your classroom that you take care of? Good thing we don't act like the little piggies in Wolf Won't Bite by Emily Gravett, or our pets might not be too happy! These are pictures of the the living things that live with Bookkitty:
There are so many good books...it is difficult to choose a favorite! What kind of books do you like to read? You can find awesome reading lists curated by librarians here & here.
