New Read Alouds for the Fall

Do you love shopping for books as much as you love back to school shopping? If you said, yes, join the club!  I just finished ordering some new books from Amazon that I thought you might love too.

Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes
This is book two for our beloved Pete the Cat!  
Rhyming Dust Bunnies Here Comes the Big, Mean Dust Bunny!
I ordered both of these.  My students love rhyming dust bunnies.  In fact they try to hide it from one another.  Don't you love when kids that!  
The Pout-Pout Fish in the Big-Big Dark
I can't wait to read this book!  
Llama Llama Misses MamaLlama Llama Home with Mama
The first will definitely be one of my first week of school read alouds.
Splat the Cat: Back to School, Splat!
Have you discovered Splat the Cat? There are so many to choose.
Skippyjon Jones, Class Action
I love Skippyjon Jones' imagination!  

I'd love to see what you will be reading this fall.  I'm sure others will too.  Join my Read Alouds for the Fall Linky Party!  Grab a button and start reading!


Happy Learning and Teaching!

  13. One of my favorites is Ticky Tacky Doll. I don't know the author off the top of my head. The story is one of my go to for back to school. I have a whole stack at school and I can't remember them all but most are here already- which is a good thing!!

  14. I love Splat! I have a stuffed Splat Cat; he travels to each student's home, snug in a red backpack, with a journal and a few of his books. This activity is fun for everyone!
