Must Have Picture Books

The Teacher Wife
I love reading books.  Every time I go to a bookstore, teacher’s conference, or blog hopping I’m always finding new books to purchase.  I swear the UPS man knows my address by heart for dropping off so many Amazon book boxes to my house. 

The Teacher’s Wife is having the coolest linky party I have ever seen.  Must Have Picture Books.  I’m sure this is going to cost me big time browsing all the blogs that over posted so far.  I see more Amazon boxes in my future.  It is hard to narrow it down to a few book here is a few of them.

Take Me Out of the Bathtub and other silly songs.  I found this on Mrs. Madden’s new blog. I just had to have this one I thought it would be great for poetry and fluency practice.

I Wanna Iguana .  I love this one for teaching persuasive writing.

Crazy Like a Fox- For teaching about similes. 

Roller Coaster- Great for teaching the trait "ideas "to student.  Students really see how to focus on just one topic.

A Bad Case of Tattle Tongue- A must have to help control the tattling in your classroom.

Well that was a hard job to do finding just a few books that I must have.

Don't forget about my blog giveaway below.  The giveaway ends Saturday.

I'm obsessed with Amazon too. Do you have Amazon prime? We had it free for 6 months and it was ridiculous how much I was ordering. I mean FREE shipping, not matter how much I spent and it arrived on my door step in 2 days or less. Totally awesome! I'm definitely adding Roller Coaster to my wish list. That looks great and I think my students could really relate because we have 2 theme parks in town! :)

Nice list - I bought Tattle Tongue at the end of last year and didn't get it read to the class. I'll have to this year.
