SO.....April?! How did this month creep up so quickly? I'm not complaining, but still so hard to believe. April is the month for many "spring-y" things, including a teacher's fav...spring break! It also welcomes everything bunnies, pastels, Easter, warm weather, and Earth Day!
Earth Day is a popular topic for us teachers! It's a great opportunity to introduce important topics, such as recycling and caring for the earth. One book I love reading with my students is Why Should I Recycle? by Jen Green.
Here is a short excerpt about the book courtesy of Amazon:
"What if everybody threw away old bottles and newspapers, littering the world with glass and plastic and tin cans that should be recycled and made into new products? Mr. Jones is a teacher who sets a good example for kids by separating his trash for recycling. When he takes them on a class trip to a recycling plant they learn the value of recycling. Part of every child's development involves asking questions. Today, some of the most important questions kids ask are related to the natural environment. The enlightening and entertaining four-book Why Should I? series demonstrates the importance of protecting nature. Books present brief, entertaining stories that answer children's questions and feature amusing color illustrations on every page."
