Book Talk Tuesday!


Hey Y'all!  Summer is almost over so I thought I'd share one of my favorite ocean themed books before the school craze sets in.   

My class loves this adorable rhyming book.


A little boy goes on an undersea adventure in his submarine...



and describes all of the animals he encounters using higher level vocabulary and rhyme.




All is well on his underwater adventure until he meets a SHARK!!!!!!


The kids made their own subs and ocean animal they would want to meet.
They had to create their animal and then use adjectives to describe it.
I love that all of their animals are completely unique. {NO Patterns and NO direction from me.  I just gave them construction paper and let them have a go at it}.
This made a super cute bulletin board display.


The sad news is that this book is out of print.  :(
Don't you just hate when that happens?  Gah!  That means crazy people are trying to sell a $12. book on Amazon for over $50.  What in the world!?

The good news is that this book is VERY similar to Rub a Dub Sub.  So if you don't have Rub a Dub Sub check you local library and if they don't have it then this one is a great alternative.



Alright, friends!  Enjoy the last little bit of Summer while you can because I hate to say it but it is almost over.  My grandbabies still live in Georgia and they go back to school NEXT week!  There is just something wrong about starting school when it is still July!  HELLO!?  I think schools go back earlier and earlier every year.  What happened to starting school after Labor Day?

  1. I am a fairly new blogger and this is the first time I have linked up to your Book Talk Tuesday. Thanks so much for the opportunity to do this. Being able to share books that we love to read/use in class is so much fun. What a great idea!
    Thanks!

  2. I agree about schools starting earlier and earlier, but honestly I wouldn't mind moving to year-round. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my summer break:), but I would be okay with a few more breaks throughout the year and students {and teachers!} not getting too far out of habits/routines. It's going to be so hard to switch my Night Owl habits to Early Bird ones in less than a week:(
