Must Read Monday...on a Tuesday??

So...I'm a little late to the party.  I got caught up getting my room ready and totally forgot about Must Read Monday!  I couldn't skip this week though, because these are some of my favorites!

This week I linked up with Kindergarten Planet and The Kindergarten Connection to bring you our favorite modern day fairy tales.  These books are just the best for teaching students to compare and contrast!

The Three Ninja Pigs is a class favorite!  My firsties love anything to do with ninjas, and they thought this book was hilarious.  These pigs aren't going to take the wolf's bullying tactics anymore, so they learn karate to take him down!

I loooove Jan Brett.  I think she is one of my favorite authors to teach with.  So many amazing things are happening in her books!  The Three Snow Bears is an Arctic twist on Goldilocks.  You can use this book to compare and contrast fairy tales AND habitats at the same time!

I like to pull out The Gingerbread Cowboy when I teach my Texas unit.  It's so much fun!  This little cowboy boot scoots by ranchers, javelinas, cattle, and coyotes.  

So there you have it!  Make sure to tune in next week...we will be talking about our favorite back to school books and you won't want to miss it!

  1. Hi Nicole! I am so glad you linked up with us and I hope your room is coming along fine. I love The Gingerbread Cowboy! I read it for the first time this past year. It was adorable. I need to check out The Three Ninja Pigs. So many people wrote about it and I haven't heard of it! Thanks for sharing your favorites with us!
