August's book of the month

Shel Silverstein's "The Giving Tree"

If you haven't read this to your kid yet, what's wrong with you? Children of all ages will love this book, even us moms too! Try reading it your kids while snuggled up in bed, and use this as an opportunity to talk with them about what giving really means. This also makes a great story for little ones to model from while creating their own story about a "giving cat, or giving dog etc...or let them do a notebooking page about a person or animal that gives to them in their lives. The moral of the story is that true giving doesn't require anything back in return. Try letting them notebook about someone they could give to without expecting anything in return from. You could also take this time and do a mini unit study on trees and the things they give to us. Use your imagination and have fun!

I have created a mini Unit study and notebooking pages set which comes with: book report sheets,lesson plans and much more for this book...you can purchase this package here at my website
