I’m so excited to share my May book sith you all because it is finally getting warmer and feeling like spring here in Wisconsin. My friends and I are sharing our favorite May Read Alouds to help inspire some great ideas for your lesson plans. Whether it’s life cycles, flowers, Mother’s day or something else, you are sure to find lots of great ideas here!
I use this book along with other Mother’s Day books to talk about all of the things that moms would find really special to receive as a gift. Most of all I emphasize how telling mom how much you love her and really being thoughtful is the best present of all! At this point in the year, my kinders are becoming really great writers and Mother’s Day is a perfect opportunity for them to practice many different types of writing. We start with writing rebus stories about our favorite memories with mom.
