Blueberries for Sal Mentor Text Recommendation

Oh my goodness... I am in the midwest and it seems as if winter is going to go on FOREVER! So today I am going to share a book with you that makes me think of warmer times! It also happens to be a classic (published in 1948) - and I 💜 vintage books! 


Do you remember reading Blueberries for Sal when you were in elementary school, or have you shared it recently with your students?

Blueberries for Sal is a great mentor text for teaching figurative language.


Brave Irene Winter Book Recommendation

I just love sharing classic children's books and Brave Irene by William Steig is the one I am sharing today! This book is all about perseverance and setting your mind to something and doing it- a great message for kids (and adults, too)! 

Have you read Brave Irene to your students this winter?

Brave irene by William Steig is a great winter read aloud that focuses on character traits and motivations. Be sure to grab the free activity!


Winter Book Recommendation: A Loud Winter's Nap

While browsing at Barnes and Noble the other day I found the cutest winter story! I can't wait to share it with you! It has instantly become one of my favorite winter read alouds! I fell in LOVE with this book (who can resist cute little forest animals with a great story message)!

How to Catch a Snowman Book Recommendation

I hope everyone had a relaxing holiday season! January is such a nice time for a re-set with the start of a new year. This is so true in the classroom as well- it is the perfect time to revisit procedures and implement any new plans/ideas for the remainder of the school year. 

Today I want to share another one of Adam Wallace and Andy Elkerton's How to Catch... books. Of course- this is the perfect time for How to Catch a Snowman


How to Catch a Snowman is a great winter read aloud your students will love! Includes FREE writing activity!
