Yup, will definitely need a new bookshelf. 
Also, any recommendations for good Malay books? I've found plenty of Chinese titles so far but Malay books are important too since Anya is growing up in a trilingual family. #AJ家 #literacymatters #earlyliteracy #📚🐛

Assembling the A - Z Vocabulary Book by @hellojenjones this evening. These are the perfect readers for my students to build confidence, reinforce letter sounds and build their vocabulary. I will do an update next week sharing what my students thought of these little books! #iteachk #teacherfridaynight #kindergarten #earlyliteracy

This gem by @juliemorstad helps turn reading time into a conversation. It encourages kids to plan their own fun day— so many fun things to talk about.
.
Love this!! More engagement (back & forth turns, chatting about it) while reading helps increases your child’s understanding of the story and improve overall language skills.
.
These early experiences with books help lead to stronger readers down the road.
.
So, make comments, asks some questions, and pause and WAIT to give your child a turn.
.
Have a fabulous weekend!!✨I’ve got big plans for extra naps and a prenatal massage. Exciting stuff, haha!

Just putting the finishing touches to these new alphabet mazes 👍🏼 I’d made some a few years ago with clip art but decided to make a new version with photos instead 😀 The clip art version is also getting a makeover this weekend so if you have purchased that file previously look out for our update email later 👍🏼 #phonics #initialsounds #iteachtoo #earlyliteracy #literacycentres

Children are actively engaged in sharing ideas and writing a message together. #interactivewriting #kindergartenwriting #kindergartenwriters #inquirybasedlearning #earlylearning #earlyliteracy #earlyliteracyskills #earthday
Today I turned 23 months old! I started spelling at 15 months old and knew the alphabet. I started reading words at 16 months, now at 23 months old I can read even more and have increased my vocab! Please share this post and help us promote early literacy in children. Link in bio for full video👆 and to learn more about me and our mission. It feels good to be a rainbow baby who inspires others!

This book. It’s like an onion in that it has layers and it makes me cry. It has been in my school library for years now, and in my classroom for a couple of weeks. Somehow I managed to not read it until this week when a child said, “Aliza, can you read this to me?” And so, I finally discovered what this Mo Willems book that doesn’t look like a Mo Willems book is all about. What I loved the most is that it is a book about death and loss and remembering and healing, but he never tells us explicitly that a character has died. Which is literary genius, because for the child who is too young to figure it out, it is a sweet story about friendship and the seasons. And for the child who needs an opportunity to talk about death and dying, the text and the illustrations are rich in content. I just can’t stop admiring Willem’s ability to craft a story so skillfully, with such care for his audience. That guy should be a famous author or something.  What children’s book makes you cry?

Scholastic is probably most popular for those book order forms kids come home with, but did you know they carry kid's magazines? One of our favorites is My Big World, featuring Clifford! The issues are seasonal, have lots of pictures with short sentences, and come with simple activities. Many of them are nature or animal themed, making them perfect for Earth Day activities.

Cinco de Mayo is coming up soon and I've got a whole list of books you can read to celebrate!  Here are pictures of some of the books and you can see the rest on my blog post (link to the post is in my profile) plus some ideas for fun activities and the outline of the story time play group I planned for Cinco de Mayo last year.
💃🏽🌮🎉
One of my suggested ideas is making homemade tortillas.  Have you ever done that?  It's actually pretty easy and they taste way better than store bought tortillas.  I grew up in New Mexico, toured a tortilla factory in elementary school, and my family bought freshly made tortillas from a tortilleria, so when my friend taught me to make tortillas the taste instantly transported me back.  The recipe she shared with me is included in the post.

Absolutely LOVE these first phonics reader books from scholastic! My 12 year old's grandmother gave them to me to use for my youngest kids.  My little guy is able to read them all and I'm so very proud of him!

We started using Mobymax with my 2 yo. This is her first week and I'm happily surprised she's able to complete the lessons. Right now we are using it for alphabet and phonics. Once she grasps one to one correspondence, we will begin numbers (early math) on Mobymax also.

Read Honest and unbiased review of Popular Children’s book – What the Ladybird Heard by Julia Donaldson from a mom. Frequently asked questions like What is the story about, what does it teach, will we recommend it to others answered below.
The worth of a book is to be measured by what you can carry away from it. – James Bryce 
What the Ladybird Heard is an interesting animal themed, well known book by Julia Donaldson.  Julia Donaldson’s books are known for funny characters, rhyming sentences and interesting story lines and they are always loved by kids and adults. Here are few details about the book before we start with the review.

1. What the Ladybird Heard – Story

The story starts with the introduction of some farm animals and their sounds (like hiss said the goose, neigh said the horse etc.) who stay in a farm happily. Among the animals their was a bug, “ladybird” who never said a word. As the story moves, ladybird came to know about two bad men who wanted to steal the farmer’s fine prize cow. She knew their plan and she conveyed it to all the other animals. All animals join their hands and that small little ladybird made a plan to stop those two bad men from stealing the fine prize cow.
What plan she made and whether they get success or not? If you want to know this, then get a book and read it with your little one.

One can never have too many Golden Books! They just look so pretty lined up on a shelf. My favorites are the classic ones illustrated by Eloise Wilkin! #bookstagram #katieshandsauthor #shelfie #goldenbooks #brilliantsky #eloisewilkin #childhoodclassics #earlyliteracy #bibliophile #nashville #brentwood #raisingreaders
Just read an interesting article by the BBC. Apparently 4 out of 10 pupils in the UK in their first year of secondary school have such a limited vocabulary that it is affecting their learning.
The "word gap" is blamed on too little reading for pleasure.
“Studies suggest breadth of vocabulary is strongly influenced by the number of words a child comes into contact with on a daily basis.” I’m sure that this isn’t just an issue in the UK 😞. Although disheartening I read another interesting fact that was a bit more encouraging. Did you know that reading aloud to the little readers in your life introduces them to as many as 32 million more words than their peers who aren’t read to at home!! 32 MILLION, guys!!! Such great news. Love seeing pics like this one by @talkwordytome_ as she reads with her little bookworms.  Such special times filled with so many benefits for little minds 😍📚

A new butterfly project we will be working on fits in beautifully with this book. If any of you live in the Houston area, check out the butterfly tracking program by the Houston Museum of Natural Science! There's a training this Saturday!
•
"The Flowers Are Calling" by Rita Gray and Kenard Pak focuses on the need of insects and other small animals to spread the pollen of flowers for reproduction. Not only do flowers need help, but the pollinators depend on the flowers for food. It's an incredible cycle, and the flowing verse and dreamy illustrations explain it magnificently.

Walking into the weekend like...💛💛💛
Walking into the weekend like...💛💛💛
Since the start of 2018 I’ve launched a pilot, gotten engaged, moved to a new city, AND started planning a wedding. ALL of these things have been a little stressful in their own way, but I’ve also experienced their reward. 
THIS makes me smile! 
We. Are. Growing!
In such a short period of time our volunteers have committed over 700 hours of service by reading over 4,000 books with our student participants. Oh, and did I mention that over 1,000 books have been added to our students in home libraries!?!
I’m extremely proud of the work that we’re doing in Philadelphia. #bloomwhereyouareplanted

Is anyone else just in love & moved by @nancytillmanauthor ‘s books? Not only do her stories pull on a mother’s heartstrings... but the artwork!! Oh my gosh... I could frame the pictures and hang them all over Vivienne’s room. My goal is to add all of her picture books to Vivienne’s library. We have one picture book so far & 2 board books. .

BUGS BUGS EVERYWHERE! Here’s some of what we enjoyed today.
.
.
In Culinary Creations our Explorers and Navigators created ‘worms in the dirt’. First, we rolled a rolling pin over our bag of crackers to create our ‘dirt’. Then, we poured pudding into our cups to create the ‘soil’. Next, we placed our ‘worms’ inside the ‘soil’ and covered them with ‘dirt’. Finally, we enjoyed our tasty ‘worms in the dirt”.
.
.
Gym Class: Mr. Shaquille placed cones around the gym to create a Wiggle Worm Course. Our students pretend to be wiggle worms, crawling on their stomachs to complete the course. By completing the course our students worked on increasing control in basic skills of running, jumping, hopping, climbing, and pedaling. Also working on interacting positively, respectfully, and cooperatively with others using courteous words and actions.
.
.
In Learning Cove our Voyagers worked on fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination by grasping and grabbing their paintbrushes to create Ladybugs on a leaf. While also learning new vocabulary words such as red, green, leaf, bug and ladybug.
.
.
While in Exploration Centers our Explorers worked on the concept ‘First, Next and Last”. Our students sequenced events accounting to when the event happened. Learning new concepts associated with the passing of time.
.
.
While rotating through Literacy and Language Centers our Explorers and Navigators worked on Creepy Crawler Compound Words for phonemic awareness. We invited students to identify bug names that are made of two individual words. Example: Ladybug, butterfly, honeybee, and horsefly. Overall learning how to combine words to make a compound word and how to delete a word from a compound word. .
