Virginia is for Book Lovers (Freebie & giveaway!)


Hello again!!  Yes, I am hopping again.  All of these hops give me a focus (and you lots of freebies).  I have been networking/collaborating with the Virginia Teacher Bloggers since last summer.  It is a great group and we talk way more than blogging.   A few weeks ago (maybe even months ago) we decided we were due for another blog hop.  Virginia is for book lovers was born!! 


I have always loved to read and I have shared that love with my children.  We all get super excited about going to the book store or library.  I also think our school librarian gets excited when we get to the book fair.  We have been known to buy a few ton of books. 


Today I am sharing with you one of my favorite books, Aliens Love Underpants. (Feel free to giggle!!) I found this book last year and it was a favorite of my preschoolers.  This year, I have been reading it  my K-2 kids and they also love it.  I think it is the underpants that wins them over. The great thing is that there is a whole series of underpants books.  You can check them all out at http://www.underpantsbooks.com/.  Yes, that is really the website.   There is even a new book coming out (Monsters love underpants) just before my birthday in May.  It is on the top of my birthday wish list


Today I wanted to share with you part of what is becoming my Underpants Bundle of activities.  This is a matching game to practice rhyming.  Some of the words are from the book, others were just added.  Kids can play this like a simple matching game during literacy centers or you could put one half of the pair in a pocket chart and hand out the other half.  Read the word and have the kiddo with the match come up and put it in.  So many options!!  You can get it by clicking  here.

Be sure to keep your eye out for when I finish more activities to go along with this book.  Also, make sure you enter the giveaway below to try to win your own copy.  Keep hopping through to make sure you get to the HUGE giveaway at the end.



Keep hopping along to Owls  & Lessons Etc.

  6. My students love any book about underpants! If I chose one of my favorite books that mentions underpants, I'd have to go with My Little Sister Ate One Hare - there's a part in it where she eats "even their underpants" and the kids howl with laughter.
