Must-Read Monday Linky

Last week, we spent some time catching up on content because of all of our crazy snow/ice/cold days.  However, we did find time to read some fun Valentine stories!  This is one of my favorites and the kids absolutely LOVED IT!  The story is about a boy who is IN LOVE with a girl and makes a Valentine for her.  The Valentine, however, thinks love is disgusting and decides to run away!  You can follow the two on the fun adventure they have as the Valentine continues to run until something happens.....  You can click on the picture below to take you to Amazon and purchase this book Right. This. Minute.  You won't be sorry!  The kids were giggling like crazy and were catching on to the repetition in the story (a CCSS skill by the way).  We paired it with one of my Valentine ELA Printables and it was a huge hit!

I couldn't pick just one, so here's my other Must-Read(s)!  Today we began by reading some nonfiction texts about Abraham Lincoln and George Washington.  You see, school was in session for us today as a make-up day for those snow days mentioned above.  So we did it up right with some President's Day fun!  These three books were all purchased from Scholastic and are WONDERFUL for learning about the two presidents, not to mention text features while you're at it!  Love these three books!  We paired them with some printables from A Cupcake for the Teacher's President's Day Unit and the kiddos were learning like crazy!  Click the picture below to purchase them on Scholastic.  Again, you won't be sorry and they're super inexpensive!

Now, head on over to Teaching Maddeness and find some more Monday Must-Reads!  Thanks for stopping by!  :)


  1. We are so behind in our read alouds, and we haven't had snow days!! We have been working on the Olympics, so we haven't read any Valentine's Day stories yet! I am hoping to read a few tomorrow, and then do President's stories the rest of the week. This Valentine story sounds really cute!! I'll have to add it to my list to get for next year!!

  2. I love those biographies and Teaching Maddness' Unit. I just wrote a blog post on it today, too! So sorry you're in school today to make up for the snow days. We California people don't get snow days!
