Ask anyone who knows me and they will tell you that I love love love children's books. I have a whole room in my apartment filled with them! You can imagine how excited I was to find a linky party about what else...children's books! Learning with Mrs. Parker is having a linky party about read alouds for fall and back to school. Here are some of the books I like to read aloud in the fall:
This is a great book about being yourself and standing up to bullies. My students love the pictures in this one!
This is a classic and one of the first chapter books I read aloud to my 4th graders. They think Fudge is funny and they can relate to some of the issues Peter goes through- dealing with siblings, working on school projects, and being a 4th grader!
I like to read this book at the start of the year as well. It is about a classroom hamster and his observations. He has a very fun personality and helps out his classmates!
I like to read this book over several days during the first week of school. It features children from all over the world and tells about their daily life including how they are educated. My kids enjoy hearing about how different these characters are from them. It is also a good way to introduce Venn Diagrams.
The last book I am including is one that my uncle gave me when I was a little girl. I love the play on words in this book! My kids like the sidebar pictures that go along with the story. Agatha gets a new feather bed but has some trouble when some geese show up and want their feathers back!
