January Reads

I am sitting in my PJs at 9:30 am and trying to hold on to these last few days of winter vacation.These last two weeks have been so good to me. I am not looking forward to that 4:45 alarm going off, but I am looking forward to seeing those sweet faces next Tuesday.

While scrolling through my blog feed this morning, I came across a fabulous giveaway over at Learning with Mrs. Parker.  She's also hosting a fun January Books linky party, so I thought I would jump in...

I love:

Martin's Big Words
I really love this book. It does such a good job of explaining why we honor MLK. Nikki Giovanni is an amazing author.

Substitute Groundhog
Really, Groundhog Day is so early in February you have to get ready for it in January... right? :) It's also about getting ready for Groundhog Day, so I like sneaking it in before February comes.

Brave Irene
I love using Brave Irene to teach conflict (character vs. nature) and theme (perseverance). It's also a fun winter story for Georgia kids who rarely see much snow.

I hope you'll link  up with your favorite January read alouds as well! Hop on over to Learning with Mrs. Parker!

  1. Great book picks. Have you read Ten Grouchy Groundhogs? Perhaps, not third grade reading, but your kids will like it especially if you get it for the listening center. Thanks for linking up.
