I am super excited to be linking up with the amazing Deanna Jump
for her Book Linky.
I've wanted to do a blog post on
so Deanna’s linky just helped me get my patootie in gear. This book tells a story every teacher can relate to in that the main character Josephina Caroleena Wattasheena has a slight problem staying focused. SAY WHAT???
(click on the pictures if you're like me and can't read the small format)
She is always wondering about how things work rather than what she should be doing.
I bet you have a few students’ names on the tip of your tongue right now. Don’t you??? I know I do!
Joshephina is always fidgeting, fiddling, fuddling, and foopling with something; she’s pretty much a tornado in action tearing up everything in her path. I love the way this story ends, it's a great reminder for us that every child has a talent and sometimes our weaknesses are our strengths. I hope you love this book as much as I do, you can pick it up on Amazon.
I have also put together a 3 free activities to go along with the story as well as some picture day reminders that are EDITABLE in PowerPoint. You can pick up your copies here. ( with all the fidgeting, fiddling, fuddling, and foopling in this story you could also do a great lesson on alliteration .)
