SATURDAY MORNINGS FOR KIDS ON SUNDAY EVENING (9/4): NYC AGAIN

YOU GUYS probably get tired with my obsession with NYC, but I found in a box of donations the perfect counting book of all things NEW YORK.

It’s a heavy paper-board book, thick enough for young hands to turn the pages easily while a parent or grandparent guides them through it.

Yes, there is only ONE Statue of Liberty. I went to it when I was three years old but have no memories of it. I think the boat ride to see it would be neat.

Yellow Cabs are everywhere in The Big Apple. Here are FIVE of them.

NYC pizzas are the best. Could you eat EIGHT? (Neither could I!)

TEN Cony Island hot dogs take up two pages. Now, after looking at the book, you can count to ten and know a lot about NY.

THIS POST IS DEDICATED TO RICHARD (Age 5) AND ROBERT (Age 3) AND MY NEW WRITING CENTER FRIEND AT THE UNIVERSITY WHERE I WORK.

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."
