Spring into a Good Book

In celebration of Spring which begins officially this week,  I decorated the library bulletin board with a Spring into a Good Book banner and then used book covers to brighten it up.

During library program for grades 1-2, I am reading “Eat Like a Bear” by April Pulley Sayre and illustrated by Steve Jenkins. Before reading we talked about ways that we know it is Spring (longer days, flowers starting to pop up, animals that hibernate start to wake up).  As I was reading, I pointed out that the book is full of action words.  We talked briefly about verbs.

Extension Activities :

1) Students may make a collage by drawing an outline and then gluing scraps of brown construction paper or paper grocery bags.
