Bread and Jam for Frances

THANKS to a friend several years ago for introducing me to Frances.  She learns good life lessons in Russell Hoban's books. If you don't know her yet, be sure to look for books about her this week. You gotta love a badger with her own mind!

I am using Bread and Jam for Frances this week as an introduction for our class project for the Science Fair this week.  We will be experimenting with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Here's a new game to go with Bread and Jam for Frances by Russell Hoban.  Click the picture to grab your own copy.

I also created several other activities to go with the book.  This is my first literature unit of activities. Be sure to check them out!  Click here to grab your own copy.

  11. OK so I love all the games with the books...I am old school I guess...from the era when we thought litrature was how to teach..I still think if as a kinder teacher I can help a child learn to love books they will be a lifetime learner...Enough wisedom..all I know is I feel excited to use these games to enhance my love of books with my children.
