So here is my story!!!!!! I go into school and see a package! Of course I was soooooo excited because I love to get packages, I mean who doesn't, right????? So I open the package and what do I see??????
Yes!!! And inside it is signed with a personal message to me and my students!!!
I could not wait to read this! It is his latest adventure and I just adore the Pout Pout Fish!! I have all of his books and I have read them over and over again!!! Well, I wasn't disappointed and neither was my 6 year old when I read it to her via Skype!!!!!!
The pictures are as cute as ever! The story is easily related to by the kids. My daughter said, Mom, I felt like that too my first time in school (Mind you she is only going into First Grade so she has just finished her "First" time in school but of course she is a big girl now. That is a whole other story, LOL!)
I love how tired he is after writing! This reminds me of my littles during writing time!
I can not wait to share it with my math classes because it shows them in math class!!
I love how it shows how happy he is after he completes his picture and his day at school! I love the self portrait!!!!!!
So this book has given me so many ideas to do with my littles when we go back to school! I already do self portraits but we are going to do self portraits of themselves doing math since I am focusing on Guided Math! We are also going to share our school experiences during morning meeting! Our journals will be about school as well as our favorite Pout Pout Fish Book! I see many graphs and opinion pieces being created and shared!!! So that is my book this week!
Oh and look, attached to the book was a letter from the author herself!! I know pinch me now!!! This has got to be one of the best packages I have ever received! Thanks, Deborah Diesen!!!
So click on the picture below to see what others are sharing this week!!!
