Whoever You Are

I love children's books!  They speak volumes in just a few words.  Here is a book I enjoy reading and sharing with my students.  It has a wonderful message.  It's a great book to read at the beginning of the school year.  (School has been over for a week and a half and I'm already thinking about the next school year.  What's up with that?)  A good teacher never stops thinking about teaching.
Whoever You Are by Mem Fox


Here is the summary on the back cover of the book: 
"Every day all over the world, children are laughing and crying, playing and learning, eating and sleeping.  They may not look the same.  They may not speak the same language.  Their lives may be quite different.  But inside, they are just like you."

EXTENDING THE READING EXPERIENCE:
Click on the blackline master below to print a FREE copy. Then make enough copies for your students.  Have your students fill in their information and share it with the class, either partner share or whole class sharing.  This is a fun "getting to know each other" activity.


Love Children's Books!
Kathy
P.S. Stay well.

Calling All Chocolate Lovers!

Take time out from school stuff and indulge yourself.  If you are a chocolate lover (like me) you will thoroughly enjoy this 5-Minute Chocolate Cake recipe.  Quick, easy, and definitely yummy!!!
It even has a video to show how it's made.  You can't go wrong!



From one chocolate lover to another!
Enjoy!

Vacation Begins!

Doesn't this sound fabulous!  Picture yourself relaxing in a comfy recliner on your shaded backyard patio.  A cool summer breeze gently blowing across your skin as you read your favorite book or magazine and sipping on this delicious, refreshing drink!

Let the good times begin!

Last Week Of School!

It's the last week of school.  Time to wind down and enjoy the summer.  Nothing pressing to think about or do, just lots of hugs and best wishes to the teachers, students, and of course to all of you.  Hugs and best wishes to each and everyone of you!   Enjoy your summer and make wonderful memories.

If you need some extra help filling in the gaps with something fun to do during the last week of school, perhaps you might be interested in looking at my latest product in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.

Have Fun in the Sun!
