SATURDAY MORNINGS FOR KIDS

THANKS CARLA FOR THE LOVELY MEME!

Just as Saturday mornings on TV during the 50s and 60s, PWR reserves Saturday mornings for kids. This is my recommendation for kids for 6/18/22:

I found this book at my local library when I was looking for a book with a compound word in its title for a challenge. It turned out I had a title with a compound word on my TBR shelf (Mt TBR Challenge), so I used that one for the challenge (What’s in a Name challenge), killing two birds with one book.

I did read this book though, and decided to use it for a Saturday Mornings for Kids review since it was too good not to share. Basically, it was written and illustrated (LOVED the illustrations!) to teach the concept of compound words.

THIS PAGE SAYS, “SOMETIMES WHEN WE’RE READING, WE MIGHT SEE A BIG, LONG WORD.” THEN ON THE NEXT PAGE…”THEN FIND IT’S MADE OF SMALLER ONES AS IN THIS ONE: ‘BLUEBIRD’. “

MANY COMPOUND WORDS ARE INCLUDED IN THE TEXT, SOME OF THEM NOT AS FAMILIAR AS THE FIRST ONES THAT COME TO MIND.

SEE WHAT I MEAN ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATIONS–MARVELOUS!

HAPPY READING KIDS!

This year (2019) finds me with 50 plus years of teaching "under my belt." I have taught all levels from pre-K "(library lady" or "book lady"--volunteer) to juniors, seniors, and graduate students enrolled in my Advanced Writing class at the university where I have just completed 30 years. My first paying teaching job was junior high, and I spent 13 years with ages 12-13, the "difficult years." I had some of the "funnest" experiences with this age group. When I was no longer the "young, fun teacher," I taught in an elementary school setting before sixth graders went on to junior high, teaching language arts blocs, an assignment that was a "dream-fit" for me. After completing graduate school in my 40s, I went on to community college, then university teaching. Just as teaching is "in my blood," so is a passion for reading, writing, libraries, and everything bookish. This blog will be open to anyone who loves books, promotes literacy and wants to "come out and play."

  1. That book looks like fun for new readers who can recognize the words inside the words. I’m gobsmacked! Overwhelmed (oh wait, that’s not a compound word. No whelmed.) Overjoyed.
