It is so hard to believe that another year will be ending this afternoon. Yippee!!
It seems like each year I teach, the years accelerate to a close more quickly than each previous year. Whoever coined the familiar idiom "time flies" sure knew what they were talking about. As a media specialist I teach and know all the students in the school. I can't tell you how warm and joyful it feels each day when kids walk by my media center and just say, "Hi, Mrs.__." Others insist on grabbing a quick hug before rushing off to class. As I said goodbye (till next year) to my students I looked at their smiling, proud faces. They knew they had worked very hard to stretch themselves to do their best. To celebrate their summer and a much needed rest and play time, I wanted to share a couple of their favorite books from this year.
Anansi,the famous trickster from African folklore once again finds himself duped.
David always seems to be getting into trouble, and kids love that. The pictures are hysterical especially when David runs down the road without his pants.
Knuffle Bunny by Mo Willems always excites the kids. This is the sequel to Knuffle Bunny. (Kah-Nuffle)
There are so many more wonderful books we have read throughout the year that I thought I would share these with you. I will introduce another book each week for all of you with kids, teaching kids or just want to be a kid for a little while. Have a great day!
How about you. What is your favorite children story. I still have to place my book order for next year. If you have a recommendation, please let me know. :)
