I hope you have been enjoying the Booking Across the USA project. Today, I wanted to share a few of the amazing bloggers’ books and projects they have created.
Country Fun Child Care in Maine explores a local author, Cathryn Falwell, for their project. They chose the book, David’s Drawing and then followed up with an art activity. It’s always so much fun to learn about authors and illustrators in your community!
Ready-Set-Read! is sharing a great list of books as well as graphic organizers, writing samples and a scoring guide. One of the many books shared is about the Pony Express called, Off Like the Wind The First Ride of the Pony Express by Michael Spradlin.
Head to Florida to learn all about hurricanes from Teaching Stars. Several books are highlighted including Hurricane Wolf by Diane Paterson.
Juggling With Kids shares the book, Redwoods by Jason Chin and then shows us how to create our own mini Redwood craft activity.
