What Would You Wednesday

What would you like to read? This is not your adult summer reading list question. Nope, I want to know what you would want to read if you were in elementary school.

I just found out what grades I will have for Library next year. Now I am thinking of all the great books for each grade. So, what book do you remember loving in ___ grade? (I have every grade but first and second) I remember in first grade I just wanted to read Berenstain Bears. Somewhere I fell in love with Amelia Bedelia. I just thought she was too funny. Did she really think she should do that? Why don't they get rid of her? Oh those pies must have been crazy good that she made.
I also remember LOVING when my mom would read books out loud to me. I just couldn't get over how she made every book more interesting. I imagine that is what my Jr. Kindergarten and K class will all about. 
I remember hearing this book, "You Are Special" and I still think of it sometimes today. I have read it to my classes before and I love the message here. 

So, what did you love to read from JK to 5th grade?

Splish, Splash

It is hot outside and we thought that the puppies would like a little pool to cool off in outside. Well, we really were not sure about our cautious Dorsey, but thought maybe Cosmo would like get in and then Dorsey would join. Just as we thought, Cosmo jumped right in and was splashing around. He was playing with whatever little piece of dirt, stick, or leaf he could see. Dorsey circled the pool many times and Alex finally just put him in the pool.

Can you see his little paw he is trying to keep out of the water? :) He was not 100% sure about the whole thing. They played outside a little longer and got all dried off to come inside. Alex and I were eating dinner and it sounded like the water bowl was empty. They let us know but scratching it or moving it around until we fill it up. I went to fill it and found our swimmer splashing around in the full water bowl.

 Yes, that is water all over the wall and the floor and the puppy. He was standing in the bowl until I called his name and put a halt on the fun. What are ya going to do? I guess we were at least successful in finding something Cosmo loves.
