Say hello to Warren Frank, lead singer of The Kents! He’s sharing Scurvy Dogs by Kevin Frank.
📚❤️
What’s the book about?
“This book is about a gang of neighbourhood dogs who like to think they’re pirates.”
📚
What will he write on his book plate?
“My Dad is the author of this book! When I was a kid my Dad (a cartoonist) would write books for my siblings and I on our birthdays. Now that I’m older he’s a published author and it’s been really special seeing so many kids read and enjoy his work. It’s like sharing a little bit of my childhood with people.”
📚
What are his favourite kinds of stories?
“I love stories about other people’s lives, fiction or nonfiction. Jerry Spinelli really did it for me when I was a young reader (I’ve also donated Maniac Magee).”
📚
Does he still read as much as he did when he was a kid? What kinds of things does he read now?
“I try to! We spend tons of time driving around on tour and that’s helped my reading quite a bit. I’ve gotten into some great books by CBC hosts lately (especially @grantlawrencecbc) and right now I’m reading “Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl” by Carrie Brownstein.”
📚
Why does he think reading is important?
“I think reading helps us understand things and opinions we otherwise wouldn’t. It helps us strengthen our imaginations, and it inspires us to become creators.”
Thanks, Warren!

Today‘s post comes from @leona_d_elena who did fieldwork in Myanmar as part of her research with @fiu_religion. Here’s what she had to share from her work: In Myanmar, Buddhist nuns cannot be ordained. They are called Saya-leis which translates to, “little teacher.” Monks are referred to as saya-daw (honorable teacher). At a religious level women are not worthy of placing gold leaf on a statue of the Buddha regardless of whether they follow the precepts. Women also cannot pray within a certain proximity of some statues. All nuns are subordinate to monks despite their time as a monastic. The first Buddhist assembly created by the Buddha consisted of four categories: bhikkhu (monk), bhikkhunī (nun), upasaka (pious layman) and upasika (pious laywoman). Saya-leis are in the order of upasika: pious laywomen. Saya-leis play supportive roles to the sangha and are not ruled by it directly; instead they respond to the monks. They are betwixt and between the sangha. The nuns do not receive the same education, layperson support, comfortable living conditions or respect as monks. Most nunneries are villages made up of wooden shacks. Few nuns achieve college degrees because of all the work that needs to be done in order to feed and provide for the residents. They also both house many more underage nuns who are orphaned. [Our guest teacher is pictured in the final photo].

Ms.Michele’s Prek class has so much fun exploring and playing with a type writer. They had fun typing their name. They were also learning letter recognition, left to right progression, and using their fine motor skills. #cmpfun #cmpkids .

Heute geht es bei #kindheitshelden um #lieblingsautoren.
Nein, ich konnte mich schon wieder nicht entscheiden und gehe mit drei meiner Liebsten ins Rennen: Jorge Bucay, dessen Bücher immer in einer tollen Sprache verfasst sind und aus dessen Geschichten man so viel für sich mitnehmen kann. Lorenz Pauli, der Unterhaltung und Witz mitbringt und Heinz Janisch, der sich recht poetisch großen und kleinen Themen der Kinderwelt widmet.

Wilhelm Carl Grimm — German linguist, author, and folklorist. He was the younger of the Brothers Grimm. Together they published "Grimm's Fairy Tales", a collection of stories such as Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, and Snow White. The stories contain witches, trolls, goblins, and wolves who prowl dark forests. The Grimms didn’t intend their fairy tales for children but sought to preserve the heritage of the German people. Born this day in 1786.

Do you make anchor charts with your class? We fit in a little shared writing when we wrote this one together. The best part about these charts are each paper can be made into giant post-it notes with a repositionable glue stick. The kids take these papers off of the charts during class ALL. THE. TIME. It's so brilliant! When they're done, they pop them back. Sometimes I see someone struggling and grab a piece of the chart for them too. Do you use repositionable glue sticks? If not, YOU MUST!

Imagine if the entire world said you couldn’t do something and you still found a way to persevere. Frederick Douglass showed us that when you aspire for education, there is no barrier that can stop you.

Egg-cellent Letter Matching.
.
This was super easy and cost maybe $2.50 at @official_dollarama . I chose the tiny eggs for storage purposes., broke each egg in half and wrote the upper case letter on the top and lowercase on the bottom of the egg in permanent marker. I’m storing them in my super expensive and fancy empty coffee container 🙄😂. Truth: it IS from the dollar store so I don’t know how long they will last , Reilly has been overzealous about snapping the pieces together and some eggs already have a few cracks in them, but for under $3 I’m ok with that. . Also, it was difficult to get a decent picture since the silly eggs kept rolling lol
.
Supplies: plastic Easter eggs, permanent marker.

Yesterday we explored Austin’s new downtown/central library. It did not disappoint. We played. We read. We played some more. 📚 .
.
.
I used to go to the library at least once a week with my first two kiddos. We all loved going. Then I had my third and that all stopped. He is loud, spirited, a climber, and a boundary pusher. He has challenged me in #alltheways 🙈 If I’m honest I stopped library time because it was HARD with him. People stared and I felt judged. It was easier to stay home. Sigh. Yesterday, at the first signs of Jack getting loud I felt myself tense up and eyes shift our direction. It would have been easy to make a quick exit but easy isn’t always the right answer. Instead, I took a deep breath, moved closer to him (proximity as a strategy is teacher 101), and we talked about the “rules of the library” and how that looks and sounds. He picked a book and we read until story time began. .
.
.
It was a sweet reminder to slow down. Sometimes we have to step outside of our comfort zone. Sometimes we have to ignore the staring eyes and feelings of judgement to focus on pouring into our kids and helping them grow. ❤️
