Teacher Read Alouds Linky

I'm joining in on the linky party over at Teaching Happily Ever After.    I'm a first grader so I like all of the Mercy Watson stories.  That little pig is awesome!  If you haven't read any Mercy stories you HAVE to right now!  And the illustrations are amazing!  I used to read Junie B. Jones a lot but got a little tired of having to explain her behavior:-)  She is a riot though.  What's your favorite read aloud?  I would love to get some new ideas for this year.  


  1. Thanks for linking up! I read Mercy Watson last year with my class too. :)

  2. I hear ya about Junie B. I only read those books aloud the first year I taught - most of the kids didn't like her because of her behavior!
    Last year I read Mrs. Piggle Wiggly by Betty McDonald. The kids loved it!

  3. I tried Mrs. Piggle Wiggle last year. Unfortunately, I wasn't into it so the kids lost out on doing any more:-( Maybe I'll try again this year.

  4. I just love Skippy Jon Jones (my husband even likes these books)! The kids love it and there is also adult humor in there as well. I really want that stuffed Skippy Jon @ Kohls for $5, but they are always sold out! I teach 3rd, but I think younger kiddos would like it, especially the parts where he throws in a rhyming song and/or wrap!

  5. I have to admit I haven't read Skippy Jon Jones but I know when my kids listen to it at listening center they crack up:-) I was one of the lucky ones that got the $5 Skippy at Kohl's. Hubby and sales lady were trying to figure out what he was. He is a weird looking little guy!
