A Book list with a project.....

Time for a book list again. I shared this picture of Gabe because doesn't he make you want to curl up with him. I am so proud of him on his reading. When he is "reading" on his own. He actually looks at the pictures and matches up the story all on his own. We are working on his reading to with some starter level books. He is loving them. When we read together during the day on one of them, He gets so excited and runs to his daddy and tells him (jumping up and down) I just read.
We are so proud of our little reader. He is starting to go in the foot steps of his older brother and he could not be happier about it.
The Giant Jam Sandwich by John Vernon Lord....... If your whole town ever gets invaded by million wasps you might want to pick up this book. It was a very cute story. The boys loved it. Gabe's Favorite part was how they caught the wasp. I will give you a hint, It involves a giant sandwich. You Can Do Anything Daddy! by Michael Rex. Such a cute story for any little kid who has a hero worship of their dad (as my boys do). Just an overall cute story. Check it out.

Top Secret by Ted Dewan..... This was one of the favorites. The night brigade goes on secret missions that can get very dangerous. They will let you know the secret if you promise not ever to tell anyone. Just a little side message though, if you have a child that is about loose a tooth you might want to read it before they do.
The Very Greedy Bee by Steve Smallman. A very bright colorful book that teaches the kids a good lesson at the same time. If you have a child that is in the mine phase. A good one to check out.
The Sorcerer's Apprentice by Ted Dewan... Do you ever want to make a robot to help out with the cleaning so you can just work on what ever you want. Well be careful on what you wish for in this magical story.
Ok now I wanted to share a craft with everyone that I did. I had a lot of fun the other day playing Phonics Go Fish so I decided that I wanted to try something else fun. I based my new project on Chick Chicka Boom Boom. I thought that I would make a phonics style of it. I made a tree out of paper and taped it to a magnetic board. Then I took clipart and printed it on cardstock. I put magnets on the back of them so that he can move it up and down the tree. Like in the story. He loves it. A fun and easy project to do.

Happy Reading!!!
