She read us the following stories...
Every other Thursday Mrs. Hausman, our guest storyteller, comes to visit our class. On her first visit she brought stories about squirrels. First she shared an informational book titled "Squirrels"...
The children heard lots of interesting facts about squirrels. Did you know that a squirrel's nest is called a "drey" and has two rooms? One of the rooms is used as a nursery!
Next, she shared a funny story called "Those Darn Squirrels!"...
And lastly, she read "Aw, Nuts!" She asked for their help in reading this one and they were more than happy to oblige! They were laughing out loud as they listened to this story about a squirrel who keeps running into bad luck on his quest to get his paws on the perfect acorn.
The acorn keeps bouncing off... he jumps in to a taxi to catch up to it, but the taxi runs out of gas "Aw, Nuts!" he shouts (along with our classroom of kindergartners, followed by a burst of laughter!), and the squirrel tries again!
Mrs. Hausman always leaves us wanting for more! Lucky for us, she'll be back soon ready to share more wonderful books!
