Purple Day!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We read “Harold and the Purple Crayon” and did some purple-themed activities:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💜Recognising shades of purple using Montessori colour tablets. Gradation is still beyond Kaye so we talked about light purple vs dark purple using the colour tablets, pictures and objects.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💜Colour hunt @macntaters_playlearngrow ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💜Tracing lines with a purple crayon @totschooling ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💜Counting the number of pies that Harold drew using @smiggle_asia mini scented grapes erasers as counters
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💜Transferring grapes using a tweezer to work on the hand muscles
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💜Purple puzzle @orchardtoys
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💜Crescent shape @habitatschoolhouse @fernandthefawn_learning

CLAUDE ON THE BIG SCREEN by Alex T Smith and KING & KAYLA AND THE CASE OF THE MYSTERIOUS MOUSE by Dori Hillestad Butler 📚📚 These two are both adorable, fun early chapter books for newer readers that my second graders are loving. The best part is that they are both part of a series so if your kid laughs at Claude and his silly sock sidekick or loves the simple mysteries and hilarious perspective of a dog, then there are more books you can get of either (or both!!) right away! 📚 What are you reading and loving this week?

Apple Prints

A classic! Can't go wrong here folks. Cut an apple in half, squirt some red paint on a plate and stamp away. I just used a craft stick as a handle but there's a fancy way you can cut a handle right into the apple itself.👌🏼We also read one of our favorite fall books called "At the Apple Orchard" from the pat the bunny series. Such a cute story!

Thanks to #kidlitexchange for sharing a review copy of this #mglit book. .
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book! The Prophet Calls is @melaniesumrow debut novel coming out on 11/6.
.
The story is about a polygamous community and all of the challenges the members go through. The main character, Gentry, uses her love for music to get her through the darkest of days! Her family is being torn apart, and she needs to make her way out of this community!
.
Gentry is such a strong female character who goes through very relatable teenage things. Questioning her parents, speaking her mind, standing up for what she believes... except it is in a polygamous world where she must obey The Prophet. The love and bond she has with her special needs sister is beautiful.
.
I absolutely recommend this book and look forward to more books by #melaniesumrow .

I couldn’t decide what theme to do next so we’ll just explore colours these few days. What better way than to start with a rainbow 🌈 sensory bin!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was going to use rainbow rice at first but decided against it out of respect to farmers. My husband works closely with farmers globally and have seen firsthand the hard work poured in just to harvest a grain of rice. Kaye has never played with food (unless they are stale) that’s why we don’t do a lot of sensory bins at home.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We also read “Rainbow: A Book of Colors” by Jane Cabrera. I like that it included objects that have the indigo colour, a colour that toddlers may not be familiar with.

A HOUSE FOR MOUSE

When this darling little mouse sets out to find a new house his search takes him through a Fairy Tale land. I loved everything about this from the map on the opening pages to the gentle illustrations and humorous observations about fairy tales that flow through the book. This is a fun one to read aloud but also to curl up with and study closely. 📚 This is coming out Oct 2. A perfect cozy story for Fall and Winter. 📚 What are you guys reading and loving today?

Back when my kids were at the Swiss international school, one of the songs that they sing every morning was a “Hello” song in different languages. The school was a truly diverse mix of kids from different cultures all over the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So we are starting off a new week by singing the “Hello” song, reading Rachel Isadora’s “Say Hello!” book and learning how to say “Hello” in 6 different languages using cards from @fiddlesticks.kids and the free “Hello Atlas” app (try it, it’s brilliant!). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

In case anyone’s interested, here’s the lyrics to the “Hello” song:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌎
Hello, Bonjour, Buenos Dias!
G’day, Guten Tag, Konichiwa!
Ciao, Shalom, Dobrey dyen!
Hello to all the children of the world!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We live in different places from all around the world
We speak in many different ways
Though some things might be different
We’re children just the same
We all like to sing and play.
🌍

I was worried when pink and blue, the first two colors in the book, seemed to stick to stereotypical girl and boy themes. But that improved with each page. I loved the concept and execution here and want to get this for our at home library. #defygenderstereotypes #genderisnotacolor #bookbug #bookstagram #bookish #kidsbookstagram #childrensbooks #childrensliterature #childrenslit #kidslit #kidsbooks #readabook #bookcommunity #readfrombirth #readtoyourkids #readallday #readallthebooks #readaloudrevival #readtokids #booklove #readinglove #areadaday #raisingareader #picturebook #librarybook #boardbook #diversereads #weneeddiversebooks #diversitymatters

I am at my happiest surrounded by the beauty and power of nature.

The sheer magnitude, power and impact is always a humbling and special experience.

Thanks to @albertwhitman for sharing a review copy of this picture book with @kidlitexchange
.
Have your kids tried skiing yet? We went to Utah two years ago and had a ball! There were lots of tears, lots of laughs, and many lessons! Then we all got the stomach virus which was definitely unforgettable! 😳
.
Teach Your Giraffe To Ski by @vivianeelbee surprised me a lot! The story is very cute and funny AND uses the tips the instructors used with my kids! Make a pizza with your skiis, friench fries, and S shapes!
.
This would be an adorable book to read on your way to the slopes! It is silly and fun! I think it would calm some nerves before going down the slopes! It would also be great for a ski school!
.
I don’t think I want to be in charge of this giraffe though! 🤪 Releasing 11/1

Lemony Snicket does it again. Such a cute book about bad moods: where they come from and how to get rid of them.
