I have mixed feelings right now. It's the end of our summer break :( But, I get to meet my new class for the first time tomorrow :)
I'm linking up with Paula from Paula's Place for Storybook
Saturday Sunday. The book I want to share this week is Dear Teacher.
This humorous back-to-school book begins with a letter to a student from his new principal welcoming him back to school. In the letter he states all of the challenging work he will do throughout the year. Following is a series of notes to his new teacher from the highly imaginative Michael, explaining the reasons for his lateness and subsequent absence; “The head of the secret service turned up…I did mention the math test, but he said the future of the country depends on me.”
Readers follow Michael on the hunt for a missing explorer from the top of Mount Everest through the Egyptian pyramids and the Amazon, by way of a rather sinister pirate ship. Michael ends up not returning to school at all, but instead finds himself on another mission of epic proportions.
Or does he?
I got my copy from Book Depository. Click here for the link to purchase this book.
Halle from Across the Hall in 2nd Grade has created a pack which you can get from TpT here to accommodate the book or any letter unit.
For those of you (including myself) who are starting back tomorrow, have a great first day back.
