Story Sunday

I lost the weekend...if any of you know where it went, let me know!  I am back with my weekend list of what I plan to read aloud this week.
Here they are:
It is Read Across America Week at our school so obviously many Dr. Seuss books will be read especially these ones.

Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett--There are not words for how great this story is!  A little girl knits and knits and knits and gives away her creations, never running out of yarn.  One day an archduke demanded to buy her yarn and she refuses to sell.  So he steals it.   But when he opens the box of yarn, it is empty.  And if you want to know the rest, you will have to read it yourself:-)

The Seashore Book by Charlotte Zolotow--We are still working on writing our own personal narratives, and this is another great author to emulate as we get all the details of our stories down on paper.

Currently taking suggestions for a new chapter read aloud.  We just finished The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.  And choosing the chapter book read aloud is so difficult for me!

For more March picks check out Mrs. Parker's Linky Party.

Happy Sunday,
P.S.  Thanks for all the blog award love!  That will be addressed in a future post!


  1. I love these titles...Extra Yarn looks like a great gift for my mother who knits as a Mother's Day gift.

    Hope you'll link this up to my March picks;

  2. I like the Seashore Book! I will definitely have to check that one out.
    I've given you an award on my blog! Come on over and check it out! :)
