Thinking about wonderful books for my class is a nice way to look forward. Read alouds are really my favorite time of the day. The students are always so engaged, it is so rewarding to see their connections to fabulous books.
Speaking of fabulous books, I'm linking up with the Collaboration Cuties weekly Mentor Text Linkup to share a favorite science text. My choice this week is How Did That Get In My Lunchbox? by Chris Butterworth.
In my class we do work with nutrition at the beginning of the year. How Did That Get In My Lunchbox? traces the path of food from farm to school and is perfect for this topic. It gives a closer look at parts of plants, and food/nutrition related vocabulary. The illustrations are colorful and fun.
Even better, How Did that Get In My Lunchbox? can do double duty as a resource for your class' study of economics. Don't you love books that can be brought out again later in the year?
Since we're on the topic of food, D and I went to an event last night that was very yummy. It was a fundraiser for the Southern Foodways Alliance which is dedicated to the preservation of southern foodways and recipes.
It was a dinner with five courses featuring five different top chefs in our area. Date nights are rare and we had a fab time.
But enough about my weekend. Here's the scoop on my science pick for this week.
