Book of the Month
In our quest to build our students vocabulary and academic language, we are continuing our tradition of all classrooms reading the same book each month. Our Book-of-the Month for April is A Big Guy Took My Ball (Elephant and Piggie Series), written and illustrated by Mo Willems. In this story, Gerald and Piggie are best friends. When a big guy takes the ball away from Piggie, she is devastated. Gerald is big, too…but is he big enough to help his best friend? Our students will learn how to get help in a peaceful way when someone does not treat them nicely.
Poem of the Month
April Rain Song by Langston Hughes
Let the rain kiss you
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops
Let the rain sing you a lullaby
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk
The rain makes running pools in the gutter
The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night
And I love the rain.
Song of the Month
CALIFORNIA HERE I COME
(Al Jolson / Bud De Sylva / Joseph Meyer)
California, here I come
Right back where I started from.
Where Bowers of flowers bloom in the spring.
Each morning at dawning,
Birdies sing an’ everything.
A sunkist miss said, “Don’t be late”
That’s why I can hardly wait.
Open up that Golden Gate,
California here I come.
