One More Good Read and a Sticky Freebie

     I love when I walk into the bookstore and see a book that is a perfect fit for something I'm planning to teach. One such book that was new to me but was actually published a year ago is the hysterical Too Much Glue by Jason Lefebvre. The little boy in the book ignores his teacher's warning that if he uses too much glue it will never dry. He creates a gooey mess and ends up sticking himself to the desk. His friends try to help him and finally his dad saves the day. It's really funny, the illustrations are impressive and I think the kids will love it. It will make a great launching pad for a beginning of the year lesson on how to use glue the right way. I made a little practice sheet to go along with the book and you can grab a free copy by clicking on the picture.

     I have an emergent reader and craftivity that I use at the beginning of the year to reinforce the concept of "Just a dot, not a lot" that will be a great follow up for Mr. Lefebvre's masterpiece. By using them together, I think we can avoid having any "melted mummy, clicky bricky, clingy stringy, blucky stucky glue boys."  I'll send a copy to the first few people who leave comments.


Have a great night!
