Book Review: Lots of Knock Knock Jokes for Kids

Title: Lots of Knock-Knock Jokes for Kids
Author: Whee Win
Publisher: Zonderkidz
Format: Paperback
Genre: Children's Humor
Kids love to laugh! It doesn't take much to set little ones off into a fit of the giggles.   Lots of Knock-Knock Jokes for Kids by Whee Win is the perfect book to start those fits of laughter.  The book contains over 250 jokes.    There are 6 chapters of knock-knock jokes and a final chapter that contains other jokes and riddles.  The knock-knock jokes are sorted into categories: Name Jokes, Place Jokes, Holiday Jokes, Food Jokes, Animal Jokes and Object Jokes.

I love that the book contains only clean jokes that are appropriate for Elementary age students.  I will warn you... some of them are really corny but when it comes to kids the cornier, the better!  It is difficult in this day in age to find appropriate humor for kids.  You can be assured that this book will not need any censoring on your part!

Valentine's Day Classroom Decor

 I love decorating my 5th grade classroom for each new holiday. One of the first things I decorate is the door to my classroom.  Be warned that I love puns and corny sayings. :)

 I don't have a hallway bulletin board like most teachers based on the location of my classroom.  Instead, the walls are covered with lockers for the students.   I learned that if I wanted to display work in the hallway that I would need to hang it on their lockers!

I modified this FREE Jar of Hearts Activity that I found on Teachers Pay Teachers.   It fits perfectly on their lockers and looks fantastic! This lesson was also a great opportunity to talk about the people and things in life that we appreciate.

We continued the discussion by reading one of my favorite stories.

I hang a large clothesline across the width of my classroom and use clothespins to hang student work througout the year.  For Valentine's Day we continued the theme of love and appreciation of the people and things in our life with a Valentine's Day Project by The Panicked Teacher sold on Teachers Pay Teachers for $2.50.  This could also be put together as a 3-dimensional project.  Maybe next year I will do that and hang them from the ceiling.

 The sad part is that when we get back to school next week it will be time to take it all down and set up for the next holiday!

Book Review- ICB Purple Pearl Princess Bible

Title: ICB Purple Pearl Princess Bible
Version: International Children's Bible Translation
Format: Hardcover
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Genre: Bibles

This hardcover Bible was made for your little princess!  The cover is decorated with purple, a tiara, glitter and 3-dimensional pearls.  There are 24 full color pages inside designed to help with further study for your little girl. 

But what makes this Bible different than other princess Bibles?  This was the first time that I read the International Children's Bible version.  I was really impressed with it for younger school aged children.  It is written at a third grade reading level yet stays completely true to the meaning of the Word of God. 

 As a fifth grade teacher in a Christian School, I can see how difficult it is sometimes for students to read from the KJV and others.  This ICB version may just be the solution to that problem!

You can buy this book on Amazon for $19.99

Book Review: God Bless Our Country

Title: God Bless Our Country
Author: Hannah C. Hall
Illustrator: Steve Whitlow
Genre: Juvenile Christian Fiction

God Bless Our Country is a Christian board book designed to teach children about patriotism and celebrating this great country that we live in.  The book is written in catchy rhyme that will entertain toddlers and preschoolers.  

The author chose to take an interesting route by choosing to make the characters on each page animals instead of humans.  I think this will increase the interest level for the little ones.  They will also enjoy the colorful and whimsical drawings that accompany the rhymes on each page. 

This sturdy and durable hardcover board book will be able to withstand what the most destructive toddlers can dish out which will make any parent happy.  Parents will also enjoy how the author has given the credit to God for all the treasures that we have been given in our beautiful land. 

You can purchase the book on Amazon for $9.99
