Hey book lovers!

I thought you'd love these songs:


Which one do you like the best?

Leave me a comment and let me know! 

You know me...

Makes for a funny mixed song.

Do you DOODLE? {writer's workshop}

We started our Drawing unit in writer's workshop and  it seems to be a favorite part of our day for many students!
Here are some things that we are working on:

We have been capturing our doodles and drawings in this book:

More details to come, just wanted to share -- 
I participated in a fun seller's challenge this summer and updated several products, including this one. 

The updated product has 2 versions:

1 doodle book with funky fonts and borders

1 doodle book with simple (kindergarten friendly) fonts. 

Both versions are included, they just have different borders, fonts, covers, and about the authors pages.

 Just print what you prefer! :)

You can see my other posts on how we use Doodles and Drawings 




Happy Doodling!

Book Lovers Club = Happy Teacher Heart

Oh my goodness...

I am seriously over the moon with my ADORABLE class!! 

We are off to a great start.

A few years ago I created a Book Lovers Club to get my Kinders excited about books and reading.

It is magical. 

I love meeting with my book lovers throughout the year! We celebrate authors, illustrators, creative choices, great books, reading, sharing our thoughts, predictions, and connections...
and more!!

Today I presented the option of creating a new Book Lovers Club with this crew and their enthusiasm with the idea was UNBELIEVABLE.

Like so unbelievable, that I couldn't even snap a clear picture. 

It made my teacher heart so happy!!

The students had to sign up and make official membership cards. 

Which we immediately took down and laminated together. Who knew watching the laminator in action would be SO FUN?! 

During free choice, Adelyne decided we needed a Book Lovers Club Poster! :) 

Here are just a few of the book lovers I have spotted this week...  

I am looking forward to so many great reading adventures with my newest members.
