Library Mom Extravaganza!

Once a week we have library and I have two moms that volunteer to read to the kids, check in and out the books,  and then help re-file the books.  My moms have gotten so creative on engaging the kids while they read, bringing in little treats, photos, and props for library day.  I get so excited for library each week to see what they will think of next.  

Since it was the week of the election, one of the moms read a cute book called Dubs Goes to Washington: and Discovers the Greatness of America...  This book is about a dog who is looking for his tennis ball all over D.C.  The students can look at each illustration and find the tennis ball in the picture!  It keeps them engaged and they get to learn about the different monuments.


Well, our sweet library mom brought a tennis ball for each child, and she wrote a famous location in D.C. on each ball!  I thought it was absolutely adorable!



The kids were so excited and LOVED the book!  Happy reading! :)

  3. What a great idea! That would be something I could never prepare at home--my puppy would confiscate as many of those tennis balls as she could! :) You do have very creative parents.

  4. That is the cutest idea! And as Katie said above, certainly gets us thinking of the possibilities for extending the activities to match the book. Some comprehension or story element questions perhaps? What fabulous parents you have! Cute!
