This is such a cute book! I've had it in my class library for a few years, but didn't read it aloud to the class until this year. The kids loved it. Thanks for the activities!! :)http://thesilverlininginteaching.blogspot.com/
I will look into this book as I need a book for beginning of the year to read along side the other first grade teachers with all the first graders. Thanks for the activities too!First Grade Frame of Mind
Love this! We're going to do reading response Fridays this year where we actually do some kind of crafty fun thing to go along with our insightful, deep comprehension activities...They are still just six, you know!This will be added to the list of books to do! I think the copy I have of this book was mine when I was little!Thanks for sharing!Mandyfirstgradetothecore
Do you know great teachers are made by the teachers next door? Lol I'm totally stealing your book when we get back to school! Ok, I won't steal...just borrow! Jaime http://whatsthebuzzinfirst.blogspot.com

I remember reading this when I was little! I found it at a garage sale over the summer; thanks for the ideas and activities!Marvelous Multiagers!
Eek! This is one of my FAVORITE books from when I was a kid. I have my own copy that my grandma gave me back then. I bring it to school every year (but I don't leave it there)! I have yet to meet anyone who uses it during the beginning of the year, so I was super excited to see this post! Thanks!! :)Maureen The First Grade Splash
i am definitely using your activity ideas! i've been looking for a different first day of school read aloud! thanks!
I read this book every year, don't know who loves it more - me or the kids! I have additional activity sheets in my "Morris" file at school.
