Hi! How are things where you are? It’s COLD in Missouri, and we’re enjoying a day at home. 🙂 . I realized I didn’t update you on last week’s books, so here’s what the wall looked like last Friday, after another great week! We are up to 291! 🙂
We had a short week this week, so only added 10 titles. They are all good ones though (Man, I say that every week don’t I? I guess they’re ALL good titles!):
A couple of cool things happened this week with our books. First of all, we read another SUPER book by Peter Reynolds, and it sparked ANOTHER super project (which I’ll share in the next few days! Stay tuned!), and also, Mrs. Fry brought out some really great big books! I have been in first grade for almost a decade altogether, but somehow I forget about those! And goodness–I should bring them out more often–what fun it was to read together and also hear a new story! Plus everyone can see so easily! We read a new David book this week (Thanks, David Shannon! Those are always a hit!), and also enjoyed a new story about the Hindu holiday, Holi. It was BEAUTIFUL and we all wanted to read it again. :). I did not get this title on the wall until after this picture, but we also celebrated Children’s Multicultural Book Day on Friday and Mrs. Davis read Outside My Window to us, sharing the importance of seeing the world outside ourselves and reading texts that show the whole world!
What did you read this week? What do you suggest for us? 🙂 . Stay warm and happy reading!
