January 18-22, 2010 RABs

Kindergarten: Joseph Had a Little Overcoat by Simms Taback
This is a really fun book!  Have a look at interviews with this author as well as videos of his books on you tube.  Really neat!  Inspiring!

Grade 1: Brady Brady and the Great Rink by Mary Shaw
Boys and girls alike enjoy these hockey books. Great for reading aloud.

Grade 2: Treasure for Lunch by Shenaaz Nanji
One of my enduring favourites.

Grade 3: The Best Skater in the Whole Wide World by Linda Bailey
This story has a great ending.  Well developed and fun to read aloud.

Grade 4: The Hockey Tree by David Ward
A new favourite.

Grade 5: Black and White by David Macaulay
For this book, when it came time to read the parts of the train station announcements, I used a children's microphone on a cheap keyboard- it distorted my voice perfectly!  The students thought it was fun.  Students really struggled, however, to understand how the different stories in the book worked together.  Unexpectedly mysterious story.
