not willing to think about it yet - but here's a back to school book and poem
I have a full month of summer holiday left, and I refuse to even make eye contact with the back to school aisles in the stores.
But for a picture book ... I'll talk back to school.
Click the the book cover to listen to Robert Munsch tell the story.
It is written in typical Robert Munsch style with good fun, plenty of repetition, good rhythm and an ending where the kids come out on top.
On the first day of kindergarten, Amanda and Jeremiah want to play with the same toys and do the same activities at the same time. But the strategies that they use at home to commandeer toys don't work in kindergarten. The teacher, and even the other children, encourage them to share - and they do - with a twist.
The book leads nicely into a discussion about sharing and friendship - always good discussions to have at the beginning of kindergarten!

I purposefully keep a lot of white space on the papers that I give my kidlets to read. I try to add something to hook their attention, but not too much to distract them from their task - to look at the words.
