Spookley the Square Pumpkin and more!

Hey all! It's been a few days, okay 2 weeks, since I last posted. It's hard to say why. It's been very busy. We've had Apple Day and our field trip to the zoo. I did my district math assessments today and the next two days are parent-teacher conferences. So I guess I've been pretty busy.

I found the CUTEST book/DVD/CD today. I can't wait to share it with my firsties! Our school is focusing on no bullying this year by going the positive route. We are teaching about acceptance and respect.

I've seen the book before called Spookley the Square Pumpkin by Joe Troiano. It's been in my wishlist on Amazon.com and I really wanted to buy it this year. So I looked at it closer and found it in a DVD form. It came in the mail today and it is SO GREAT! Not only is there a darling movie about Spookley which teaches a great lesson but it also has 4 other video picture books with wonderful messages for kids. One is for Easter, Valentines, Christmas, and Independence Day. Plus the book Spookley is also on the disc read by Boris Pickett. All the stories are in rhyme and can lead into great class discussions of how we should treat others. As a bonus there is a music CD of Halloween songs. It is really a bargain for just under $10. If you click on the picture above it will take you to Amazon.com for more information.

I hope everyone is having a GREAT week. Thanks for stopping by.
