Robert Munsch, New Stuff, Book Club Freebie, and It's Tuesday

Really?  Only TUESDAY?!

We started our Robert Munsch author study this week and it's sooooo fun!  Yesterday I took pics of my kiddos... they had to smile with their teeth showing... and today we read Andrew's Loose Tooth.  Afterwards, they got this paper (from my pack of fillable themed writing paper!) and had to write about a time they lost a tooth!

I programmed the top with a cute little introduction to the assignment and then typed that they had to use 1 onomatopoeia, 1 strrretched out word, and repeating words like Robert Munsch.

Then they blacked out a tooth or two from the pics I took and printed yesterday... the result... the cutest little hallway thing you ever did see!

It was super fun!  And the stories they wrote were too cute!

Tonight I added two new items to my shops- book club packets with questions for Junie B. Jones and a Little Monkey Business and The Littles.  I use packets like this often during my guided reading and like it because it gives my readers focus when I ask them to leave me and complete some reading and thinking on their own.  My goal is to tweak others and add more this summer.  I do lots of chapter book studies in my reading groups!

I wanted to get these up and posted because they are 20% off in my shops until tomorrow yet!  And I think you can still get an extra 10% off at TpT today still.

Here's a peek at how they look.  This packet is yours free for the book The Crybaby Cowboy by Carole Marsh.  It's a chapter book that is an easy reader... some of my on level firsties read it earlier and they were THRILLED to be reading a chapter book!  :)  If you don't have it, I'd highly recommend it as a great confidence booster!


  1. Oh MY GOSh! I loved doing a Robert Munsch unit with my kiddos last year. We actually wrote to him and he wrote back! He turned my kids into characters of a story! (it was a pre-written one that he just fills in names to it, BUT, the kids LOVED it and I could copy it to send home with them all) If you haven't written to him (have your kids write him) you need to! (But, do it in March so that you have plenty of time to get the letter back! I didn't get a chance to do it this year with our new schedule/grouping that is going on, but will fit it back in next year!
