    I'm currently reading "Reading with Meaning" by Debbie Miller and am looking forward to revamping my reading program for next year. I just finished my 1st year of teaching and am looking to purchase more quality literature for my class library. I am especially interested in titles of good read alouds.

    ANY suggestions are welcomed and very much appreciated!

    Thank you!

    Take a stalk of celery with leaves, put some peanut butter on the celery and add some alphabet cereal on the peanut butter.

    Make a coconut tree put a large one on the first page.
    Make a coconut tree put a large two on the second page and etc.
    Have brown coconut shapes. Students glue one coconut on the first tree and two coconuts on the second tree and etc.

    Buy a coconut --- drill a hole in the eyes. Let everyone taste the milk. Make a chart showing who liked and who didn't like the juice. ----crack open the coconut with a hammer and taste the coconut meat. Make another chart. Buy two and experiment with one at home.

    How to Eat Fried Worms finished up with eating fried worms (spaghetti noodles precooked and battered and fried to look like fried worms and of coarse dirt cups (pudding) with gummy worms
    Read “Stone Soup” Than send a list home with students and ask parents what they would like to donate to make the soup. We make ours a large roaster oven. Potatoes are cheap so use lots of them and you can invite another grade to come listen to the story and share a bowl of soup. Invite the head of your school to join. It smells so good cooking and eating. Cooperation never tasted So Good.
    Stellalula ---Blue jello, grapes in the bottom (rocks), when partially set add gummy fish, make them look like they are swimming.
