Unit 6 Week 1 Mice and Beans poem and activity

Unit 6 Week 1 Mice and Beans
Rosa Maria loves to cook big meals for her big family, and she's determined to make her youngest grandchild's birthday party a special occasion. But when important items start to disappear from her kitchen, she doesn't know what to think. You will delight in uncovering the clues that lead to a very funny surprise. Vibrant paintings with brilliant comic touches, a winsome main character, jaunty rhythms, and playful refrains make MICE AND BEANS a feast for the eyes and ears.

This week's poem is "Today's My Favorite Holiday" by Kenn Nesbitt. I asked each child to bring in items that represent their favorite holiday.  I will post more pictures later.  Here is mine:

"Christmas is about spending time with family and friends."

"Christmas is about celebrating Jesus' birthday and spending time with your family."

"Christmas is a time to spread joy and happiness and time to have fun.  I love Christmas."

"Christmas is about seeing your family and celebrating."

Just a reminder that you can download any of the poems that are featured on this blog here (Click on the journal):
