my kids on the beach
I dont know about anyone else, but we are already starting our Professional Development days next week. Geez, can you believe it! Anyways, I am excited to see all my teacher friends, but once these days start, its hard to turn my brain off from teacher mode. Sure glad I already read one book this summer. I wanted to see The Lucky One, but had to read the book first. I should have done it the other way, definitely would have enjoyed the movie more if I didnt compare it to the book the whole time. Books are always better!
On that note.....one of my favorite books to teach with is I Ain't Gonna Paint No More! by Karen Beaumont and Illustrated by David Catrow. I love the pictures and the rhyming of this book is amazing that the students want to read it over and over. Great for predications.
Here is your freebie since it has been SOOOOOO long since my last post. Students can draw/ paint their favorite part of the story or they can create a painted self portrait.
I love this idea I found on Pinterest
