Z is for Moose... What?#!

Have you read Z is for Moose by Kelly Bingham?  It's HILARIOUS!!!  Moose will remind you of your little ones.  He is so excited about being in the alphabet production that he just can't wait for his turn.  Does this sound like about 25 little ones you know? When he thinks he has been overlooked, he begins to "act out".  It's just too funny.

I enjoyed the book so much that I created a mini-craft and writing prompts packet to go along with the book.  The mini- packet would also be a great addition to your camping or forest units.

At TpT only $1.50

My 18 page mini-packet contains:
Book suggestions
Writing prompt: "Sometimes I Just Can't Wait For..." - primary lines
Writing prompt: "Sometimes I Just Can't Wait For..." - secondary lines
Writing prompt: "If I Met A Moose..." - primary lines 
Writing prompt: "If I Met A Moose..." - secondary lines
Writing prompt: Acrostic Poem - primary lines
Writing prompt: Acrostic Poem - secondary lines
Describe - graphic organizer

I am thrilled to be featured on New Teacher Blog Tuesday.  Dana at Fun in 1st Grade hosts this great "get to know new bloggers".  Hop over if you get a chance, it's a fun way to learn a little more about fellow bloggers.


Have a great week... I'm off to San Francisco for a Learning and the Brain Conference.  I'm so excited... I can hardly wait (moose and I have something in common!)

  7. Another cute/funny alphabet book that is similar is "A Is For Musk Ox." It's also about an animal that wants the whole thing to be about him. "Z Is For Moose" is on my list to get though. :) Love your mini-packet that goes with it!


  8. Looks like an adorable book! Congrats on your feature!
