My library lesson last week:
I read Meet the Parents by Peter Benly to Pre-k through 2nd. This book is on our Texas 2x2 list for 2015. It's a rhythmic book. Students pointed how the words that rhymed as I read it. After reading it I asked two questions.
1) What do your parents do that you don't like?
I got all kinds of answers but my two favorites were "Making me pee before bed." and "Making me bath. I hate that." Kids crack me up! I did have one student say "When they cuss at me." That broke my heart!
2) What do your parents do that's fun?
I got all kinds of answers by my favorite was "Read to me."
For 3rd through 5th grade I read Easter poems I make into this prezi.
I included some serious poems as well as some silly poems. Students really liked the Easter Bunny Poop poem. You can read about a funny thing a students said after reading this poem here.
