Zoo Animals Shared Reading, Emergent Reader, Finger Puppets and More!

This is the first year that we have planned not to take our Kindergarten students to the zoo. Every year it seems like we battle with the weather and it's so unpredictable that it was easier to go with an indoor field trip this year and not have to worry about rescheduling. I'm really looking forward to our new destination (a science and discovery center), but I will definitely miss the zoo. However, we were lucky enough to still get to teach a unit on zoo animals!

I have a created a few resources to go along with ELA and Math that still incorporate zoo animals into Shared Reading and Math Work Stations. Be sure to check them out in the next few days while they are on sale! Click on the pictures below to take you to my TpT store. They would also go great with my zoo animal hundreds charts like the lion and monkey!

Reg. price - $2.00...on sale for $1.70*

Reg. price $1.50...on sale for $1.28*

Meeting the Authors of Nubs: The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine & a Miracle

Nubs: The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine & a Miracle was a Missouri Show-Me Award Winner.

Last week, I attended my first library conference! I am getting so excited for my new job next year! My mom and I attended the Missouri Association of School Librarians (MASL) Conference at Tan-Tar-A. I was fortunate enough to get to go to a workshop by Kirby Larson and Mary Nethery, the authors of Nubs: The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine & a Miracle. It was the first workshop I have ever had serious tears through. Their story from the initial process of writing the book to the letters they've received afterward was truly inspiring and so touching. That night, I had the opportunity to have my copy of the book autographed for my own kiddos. Both ladies were so sweet and seemed to be such a perfect fit to co-write the book.

The picture taken below was super blurry, but it's still a memory all the same. If you ever have the chance to meet Kirby Larson and Mary Nethery or attend a workshop session of theirs, be sure to go. The only thing that could have made it better would have been if Maj. Brian Dennis and Nubs were there, too.
