Given that my little people are on Spring break, we made the most of it today. We had a playdate and visited our local library. Our family just loves the library and views it as a magical place, full of many adventures, just waiting to be explored. While at the library we discovered that we could check out Wii games…for free and for a few days at a time. At the same time, I found myself amazed and grateful.
What a wonderful way for audiences young and old to try out new games and new yoga poses for the Wii 🙂 I was so thrilled by this awesome discovery, I felt the need to share it with all of you.
The other treasure we found while at the library, was a book called, The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig, written by Eugene Trivizas and Helen Oxenbury. My daughter and I shared so many laughs over this tonight. The vocabulary is excellent; some words were challenging for my daughter to sound out and there were a couple of words she did not know meaning. I utilized these words as great teachable moment tools.
Scholastic offers a free lesson plan for parents and teachers to use with children provided by Michelle Higgens, a third grade teacher. Given the lexicon used in this book, I would recommend for grades 1-3. This would be a great resource to use when teaching/discussing bullying and differences with child/student.
I hope everyone runs out to their local library and reads this book…funny, cute and a tool to learn from.
Have a great night and happy reading!
May we continue to seek knowledge in all things,
