While visiting Smyrna Elementary near Nashville, TN, I learned about the great prices on children’s books at Kohl’s. So I did a little after school shopping and picked up Actual Size by Steve Jenkins for just $5.00 there! It’s an excellent book for teaching measurement. Pictures of animals throughout the book are the actual sizes of those animals.
Another new one spotted there is Read a Rhyme, Write a Rhyme with poems selected by Jack Prelutsky. This one is perfect for the writing or poetry station. It gives kids starts for writing their own poems.
