Our must read book list for February is here! I think we have chosen some good ones too. February is a busy month with lots of topics to cover. These four must read books will help with some of those topics.
As I researched these books and made my choices, I really enjoyed these four must read February books for different reasons. I will tell you my why for choosing them below. The links below are referral links, which means, I will earn a commission if you make a purchase, at no additional cost to you.
Our first must read book is I Love You and Cheese Pizza. A great way to use this book is to teach students about love. Love comes in different forms like love for cheese pizza and love for your teacher who has the patience to help you solve a math problem. It would make a great springboard for recognizing the different ways people show love to one another by their actions.
In President’s Day, students are putting on a play about a few past presidents in history. This is a nice way to introduce the President’s Day holiday without it being overwhelming to young readers.
Our third must read book choice, Hidden Figures, is a favorite! I have seen this movie, which I love, and when I saw the book, I knew it needed to be on our list. People who have the capacity for such high level mathematics are so inspiring to me (probably because I do not have this gift)! These women were amazing and broke barriers! This books can be inspiring to girls and anyone to believe in their talents and go for their dreams!
Our last choice, Groundhog Gets A Say. is a fun book about groundhog not getting any respect from his friends. As groundhog defends how great he really is, he reports fun facts that end up impressing these friends.
Along with these fun book choices, we’ve got one more fun February activity for you- Valentine Blends & Digraph puzzles! Students will have fun listening for blends and digraphs sounds to complete the puzzles in word work stations or literacy centers. Find it here!
