The Little Red Hen

The  Littel Red Hen is a classic book about about a hen and three of her friends. The hen’s friends use her to do all of the housework and yard work, while they spend their time napping and worrying about themselves. The hen makes a discovery that will benefit the entire  household, but her friends still did not want to offer her any assistance. When the outcome smells delicious, her friends then want to help. An activity for the Little Red Hen is to read an alternate version and have the students find comparative and contrasting elements in the stories. Have the students write about a comparative or contrasting element and support their finding with evidence from the two books. I did this activity with kindergartnersin small groups and they LOVED it! The Accelerated Reader level is 2.9.

The Adventures of Silly Sally
Silly Sally by Wood, Audrey (1992) Hardcover - Audrey Wood

    Silly Sally is an endearing book about new friends. Silly Sally meets these new friends on her way to town, who each teach her something new. Whether it is singing, dancing, or playing leap frog she and her friends have a lot of fun. Each character in Silly Sally is unique and shares their quirkiness as a diverse group of friends. Audrey Woods use of rhyming and anthropomorphism are sure to engage students of all ages. The fun illustrations are captivating and will keep the attention of even the littlest of learners. My suggestions for activities which complement Silly Sally are,  matching characters with their actions, sequencing the appearance of characters, and recognition of vocabulary by using word sorts (open or closed). The Fountas and Pinnell reading level is a Level C.

Toriko Volumes 5 and 6
Toriko, Vol. 05 - Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro
Toriko, Vol. 06 - Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro

If you've not read this series, I'd suggest taking a look at my review for the first two volumes here.

My review of the third and fourth volumes can be found here.


We're still on the IGO island as Toriko and Rin as well as Komatsu and Sunny work their way separately to the Regal Mammoth and the Jewel Meat. But the Gourmet Corp robots are in their way.

One Piece Vol 51: The 11 Supernovas -Hit him again
One Piece, Vol. 51: The Eleven Supernovas - Eiichiro Oda

Boy, this is one of the darkest section of One Piece; I never saw this coming. I love Luffy but I'm not sure he handled the last part right. We will just have to see.



Reread 10/22/2014


The closer they get to the New World, the more interesting things get. I like how the readers know more about Hatchi and we're already on his side. Very smart and works better as the Straw Hats change their minds.

One Piece, Vol 50: Arriving Again - Bink's Brew!
One Piece, Vol. 50: Arriving Again - Eiichiro Oda

I love the headings of the question corner done by fans around Japan. And what Zolo does for Luffy after the battle on the Zombie island was amazing.





I love you Zolo! Seriously, I tear up every time.


...and Brook!


This is an emotionally draining volume. And I love the song Bink's Brew.






Kuma is creepy but his words and actions don't mesh; only when Zolo gains a hit does he truly retaliate.

(spoiler show)
