I hope that everyone had a nice and relaxing Spring Break with family and friends. We are gearing up for the end of the year! I can't believe how quickly this school year is going. In some of my groups we will be starting a unit on "Tops and Bottoms" by Janet Stevens. It's one of my favorite spring time books to share with my students. It's a fun tale about a clever Hare that solves his problems by tricking Bear. Bear owns a lot of land and agrees to let Hare work the land in return for some benefits. Hare works very hard while Bear is lazy and doesn't do any of the work. Hare tricks Bear into reaping all the rewards for himself. Students learn the value of hard work in this fun story! Happy Spring!
