We also read a book that my teaching partner let me borrow called Press Here. Have you heard of it?
If you haven't and you teach Kindergarten run out and find it now! The kids were SO into this book I can't even describe it. It's not really a story...the pages actually contain only pictures of colored dots and instructions like rub the dot gently, tap the dot five times, or press the dot hard, but they were so excited to see what each action made the dots do on the subsequent page. When you tap the dot five times on the next page the one dot turns into five. When you press the yellow dots hard the background on the next page turns black. The text on the page is funny and really engaging and it was seriously as if the author was watching us read it and writing the text based on the kids' reactions. It was so fun. I have a feeling that I definitely need to add that book to my own collection because the kiddos will be looking for it on the shelf.
I thought the kids were obsessed with the Pigeon books last year, but I think Pete the Cat and Press Here are bringing it to a whole new level.
Speaking of a whole new level...have you heard of Candy Corn M&M's? They are orange, white, and yellow and filled with white chocolate. YUM. Sadly, they are apparently a Walmart exclusive, so I had to track them down on amazon and spend way too much for a 9 oz. bag. They arrived today and made me a very happy camper. I heart prime shipping.
