Check Out What My Librarian Shared With Me!
I love that my librarian is willing to share her excitement when she finds a new book. On Friday, as I was walking through the library, she stopped me to share a fun, new book she came across. What a fun book! We stood there reading it and came up with all the fun possibilities it could be used for right on the spot. Good thing too, because she unexpectedly had a Kinder lesson that day and so she used it. She shared it and introduced onomatopoeia. If only you could hear those little mini-students chanting, "onomatopoeia, onomatopoeia."
This book is so stinkin' cute. Now why didn't I realize that one word could be a whole book! What a smart author! No -- literally. The only word used is "moo." The author just used it with different punctuation and added it to various illustrations. The kids loved going through and reading it together. I thought what a great way to introduce using expression and how punctuation works. You can check it out at Amazon by clicking the book.
