made my monday

Olivia and Emma made my Monday when they showed up this morning with books that they wrote during their weekend play date. A Story of Two BFFs is quite the page turner. So excited that my students are amazing writers in and out of the classroom. This is one of the many reasons why I love Writing Workshop.

our kindergarten musical

Songs to make you squirm, 
sung by singers that make you smile.
So proud of my students and their performance of our kindergarten musical this week!!
 Thank you Mrs. Adams for being THE BEST music teacher!!
We loved our musical and had a blast performing it.

Mrs. Wishy-Washy

Joy Cowley brings her lovable character Mrs. Wishy-Washy to life in these adorable books. I sampled two of the books from her new collections. These books are leveled and have before, during and after reading questions and other text features in the back of each book. Single copies of these books would be great to use for guided reading mini lessons. Multiple copies of these books would be a great resource for guided reading groups. How fun would it be to have everyone reading about Mrs. Wishy-Washy while being able to read at their own level. 

Hameray Publishing is having a Joy Cowley Classroom Giveaway that calls for teachers, parents, friends, relatives and anyone else who wants to nominate a classroom to possibly win 90 new titles from The Joy Cowley Collection and The Joy Cowley Early Birds Collection by beloved author and Mrs. Wishy-Washy creator, Joy Cowley! These two collections of leveled readers, for Kindergarten to 2nd grade classrooms, are developed for shared, guided and independent reading. Finger puppets and 3 audio CDs will also be included, 
comprising the value greater than $400! 
Good Luck!!
