Spring Into Reading Linky

Spring Into Reading Linky


Welcome friends!

I hope that you are enjoying your stops along The Reading Crew's spring blog hop! May you gather great ideas to use in your classroom in the days ahead!  My contribution to this month's collection of favorite mentor texts is a thought-provoking story that will help you teach compare and contrast skills to your primary grade students.


Primary grade students will love comparing and contrasting both the character traits of Bear and Hare, and the vegetables growing in their garden, using Janet Stevens' TOPS AND BOTTOMS as a mentor text.

Host a SOUP-er Staff Luncheon!

Host a SOUP-er Staff Luncheon!


"Soup is good food," my friends....

For me, it brings warmth, comfort, and flashbacks to many childhood meals. Bean soup with corn muffins made by my mother.  Pasta Fagioli with lots of parmesan cheese on top made by my grandmother. Tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches made by my father.  

Soup is easy to make.  

Soup smells delicious and triggers happy memories.

Soup soothes a stressed soul, a crowded mind, and a tired body.  

Soup can be shared by many.

As the Campbell's commercial used to remind us....

"Soup is "Mmm!  Mmm!  Good!"

For these reasons and more, soup makes a great staff luncheon choice when your colleagues need a big  morale boost!  Read on to find fun ideas on how to host one!


Serve up a soup smorgasbord at your next staff luncheon to boost teacher morale and build camaraderie! Comfort food is key to keeping your colleagues' stress levels low and their happiness high!
