Judy Moody and the Bucket List

For our last week of library for the school year, we read the first chapter of “Judy Moody and the Bucket List”


Before starting, we talked about what a bucket list was and what the expression “kick-the-bucket” specifically meant.   Since we weren’t checking out books, the students got to check off one of the items from Judy Moody’s Bucket List – Go Camping.

Camping in the Library

This week the theme is camping.  We read Scare a Bear by Kathy-Jo Wargin and Camping Spree with Mr. Magee by Chris Van Dusen.  (I downloaded both of these books from my local public library to my iPad and showed them by hooking up the iPad to a projector. ) I also read the poem “Toasting Marshmallows” from Toasting Marshmallows: Camping Poems by Kristine O’Connell George,  complete with toasting fork and marshmallow.  We also sang  A-Camping We Will Go by Jean Warren .
