Monday Made It

Finally, I've added another product to my TPT store.  I have slowly been going through the If you give a ...... books and creating circular story maps.  My latest is If You Give a Pig a Pancake.

If You Give a Pig a Pancake, Story Map

You can buy it here!

I thought I would also share my yummy pancake recipe with you!  It is super easy, and super yummy!

Light Fluffly Pancakes

2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup chocolate chips

We have these every morning during school.  I usually add a bit more milk, and also use whole wheat flour.  I also just heat up some frozen berries for homemade berry syrup!  A great breakfast for school!

Five for Friday!

 Today I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for her five for Friday!  I chose to share some of the great things we did in July!  Had so much fun on our trip, and it is nice to be home.  

Love this boat--and all the history these boys learned on the tour!  This was a boat used in the war of 1812.  Very cool!  

What could be more fun than being able to feed a baby calf.  We had a great time at the Farmer's Museum. The museum tries to farm in the same manner as the 1800's.  So fun!  

Beautiful rest stops with fun rocks to explore!  These kids were troopers on our one day drive back from New York.  Love that we took the time to enjoy the rocks and stretch our legs!  

Nothing says summer like tie-dye shirts.  We dyed 18 shirts.  My niece came over to help me rinse out the shirts.  We had an assembly line going.  It was great!  

They turned out great!

Can't wait to see your week--well this actually represents my month, but it also says summer!

Subway Stops

I'm back from my two week vacation!  We had a great time visiting family and seeing many historical sights.  I think I almost caught up with my laundry as well.  We are also back to doing some school.  My daughter loves Robert Munsch, and I let her choose the stories we read together.  So this week"s book talk is about Jonathan Cleaned Up--Then He Heard a Sound.  

Jonathan Cleaned Up--Then He Heard a Sound

In this great story, Jonathan is left in a sparkling clean living room.  When all of the sudden, he hears a sound. The wall opens up, and a train full of people walk through his living room.  This happens several times, until Jonathan decides to talk to the Mayor about the situation.  Well the mayor is no help at all!  Jonathan finally comes across a very old man who happened to be the computer of the town.  (The actual million dollar computer didn't really work, so the old man ran the city.)  Of course in Munsch style, Jonathan changes the subway station from his living room to the mayor's office.  Who would build an office at a subway stop?

I created this story map to go along with the book.   
Story Map for Jonathan Cleaned Up--Then He Heard a Sound
 I really love doing the Story Maps.  You can find this Story Map here.

I also make these subway signs.  They are based off the signs in New York City, but you get the idea!  

I made these Subway signs, just for fun!  Although they never seem to get on the train at his house, only get off.  But that again is the beauty of a Munsch story!  

Where would you want the last stop of the train?  Definitely not my living room, although you would think it might be! 

Happy Summer, and make sure to link up with Mrs. Jump for more exciting book finds!
