I am linking up with the Collaboration Cuties to tell you about a new-to-me book that I’ll be using next week! I got this book in the mail from my bestest bloggy buddy, Joanne from Head Over Heels for Teaching! She saw it, thought of me, and mailed it to me…how sweet is that?? Just one more reason why the blogging community rocks! :o)
This book, Buffalo Hunt, is written on a much higher level than what most of my kids could read by themselves, and it’s a pretty long book so I won’t read it all, but there are definitely some parts of it I am going to read aloud and they are going to LOVE it. Every year when we talk about the Plains Indians, we talk about how they hunted buffalo (of course) and how they didn’t waste any part of the buffalo. They always want to know details- what does that mean? What did they use everything for?? Welllllll, this book tells you! My kids are gonna freak! As I read, I’m going to give them this graphic:
I got this graphic from the Idea Book found here (in case you want to use it, too!) – I’ll have my students highlight anything they hear me talk about as I read. The book goes into more details- including the uses for the insides, too. My boys are going to think I’m the coolest. Ha!
Since I’ll be using this book next week, I want to also link this up with Mrs. Laffin’s Laughings– today is the first day of her new linky party! 🙂
I hope you all have an excellent week! :o)
