It's a deadly storm. The kids know they're almost done, the assessments, recording of assessments, data notebook work, artic cards, forming classes, report cards, textbook counts, class party...ugh...Calgon take me away!! I know you feel me. Unless you're already out for the summer. In which case I am extremely jealous. EXTREMELY!
So, as the year winds down and I begin to move things around to pack (oh, left that off the list, didn't I...) I've started to realize that I haven't had a chance to share some of my most favorite books with this class. I decided to share one each day and try to squeeze in at least a little activity to go with it.
Today I read the book Things that are Most in the World by Judi Barrett. It's a great book to introduce superlatives. It's also a great mentor text for word choice, fluency and ideas. It's a quick read, but the phrases and the illustrations are a big hit with the kids. Lots of laughs with this one. One of the pages tells the wiggliest thing in the world is a snake on ice skates.

I made one too: The happiest thing in the world is drinking coffee from a real cup on the first morning of summer. But I forgot to take a picture of it. ;0)
