This week was the first week that I started reserving book at the library. The children's section at my local library is a bit small and I was beginning to see at a lot of the same books, so I thought I would mix it up. I reserved 35 books that I had been curious about reading and these were the first to come in. Before school I read over the books that were ready for me to pick up. A majority of them were not what I was hoping for, either not in line with Montessori, had too many words or pictures or they simple did not align with the way I want the children to be speaking to each other in the classroom. Most of them I returned, but kept a couple even though I had reservations about them (Me I Am and Big words for little people) I thought I would experiment and see if they children were interested in them.
They were not.
Favorites this week were Mama cat has three kittens, Pet Vet and The Best Pet Yet.
Next week we will hopefully focus on body awareness....If the book I have on hold work out, my fingers are crossed :)
