FALL into Savings for Your Classrooms!

Hi All! Jen from Sparkling in Second here!

In the spirit of FALL, I want to share one of my favorite Thanksgiving read alouds.

"The Ugly Pumpkin" by Dave Horowitz, is a rhyming story about an "ugly" pumpkin finding his way through October and into November. A fun twist on the old tale The Ugly Duckling.

This book has a lot of depth. You can use it to teach many things: kindness, accepting others, anti-bullying, thankfulness, or just the transition between Halloween & Thanksgiving.

Make sure to BUY THIS BOOK :) It's a must have for this season!

Here's a peek into my Ugly Pumpkin Book Companion!



Happy Fall!
