|"My Mommy Is Magic" book cover|
My post today is for Mother's Day. One of my favorite books for this holiday is My Mommy Is Magic by Carl Norac. It is such a sweet and lovely book. The illustrations are colorful and bold, and really convey the emotions that the little girl feels toward her mother. The text is easy to read and will keep the attention of young students. I especially like the line "If I hurt myself, my mommy kisses the sore place, and... Ta-da! It's all better."
Here is a writing page that matches the book:
My Mom Is Magic
When I was little, I remember learning a poem/song that had a line for each letter in the word "mother". I found that song on iTunes by Eddy Arnold. It's sort of a country version of the song that I learned as a child, but it's super-cute.
In keeping with the topic, here is a guided reading book that you can use with your students that incorporates science with language arts:
I Love You Big
