Tell Me About Your Day Today
Discussing the day's events with his three favorite stuffed animals. In turn, each one tells about the adventures of the day, and how "the whole wild thing turned out okay. While the words in this book are simple, the cadence is phenomenal and very satisfying to read aloud.
Although each of the four There once was a boy who loved bedtime. Although each of the four encounters difficulties throughout the day, at the end everything is fine, and they are happy, safe, comfortable, and loved. It's a nice message to leave children with before bed. The story also models good listening, as the goose, the bunny, the rocking horse, and the boy all wait politely for each to tell the story of the day, taking turns in a very respectful way. This is quickly becoming one of my new favorite read-alouds. It's not a rhyming picture book, but it has this lovely comforting refrain: And Greedy Goose told him about her day-- the who, the what, the why, and the way Each animal's story is that short, with beautiful spot mostly illustrations showing exactly what the who, what, why, and way are!
But each story has drama! The details, like the band-aid over Fat Rabbit's bottom, are warm and funny. And when the boy tells his friends about his day, his friends are, of course, prominently featured. This is a lovely, beautiful bedtime picture book. Hooray for Mem Fox and Lauren Stringer. Love how all the pieces of all the stories fit together. The phrase, "The who, the what, the why, and the way the whole wild thing turned out okay" is a great beginning story framework. Every page is rich in color and helps to tell the story. The story is told about a young buy that loved bedtime because he got to "talk" with his four best friends, his stuffed animals.
They each take turns telling about their day. It does not give details about their days, just illustrations. At first I thought of this book for bedtime rather than a read aloud. However, by the end of the book I found many connections that could be used for a kindergarten classroom. A fantastic new bedtime story. After a little boy goes through his nighttime routines, he spends a few moments with his most cherished stuffed animals and asks about how each one spent the day.
The text follows a formula and artwork is used to fill in the blanks as the text is very simple. The pictures help build narrative skills as the text doesn't reveal what happened during everyone's day, the pictures tell the story. Lu loved this book. The little boy has firetruck jammies and a firetruck toy just like Lu , a special blanket like Lu , and a bed full of stuffies like Lu. Lu was very serious about interpreting the illustrations about the stuffie's days to tell me what happened to them.
He clapped when we finished and said "Now, that a good book! I like the connections in this books. The little connections the toys make and then the big connection the boy's actions makes. Nice and repetitive. I love the repetitiveness of the text which engages early readers in being able to "read" it. Excellent and clever! This one is going in my personal library.
This is just a delightful and whimsical addition to any bedtime routine! I love how the boy asks each of his beloved stuffed animals how their day was! My favorite was the Blue Horse, but I would have loved having any of his friends come pay me a visit when I was little! Empathy is so important to teach little ones and big ones too and I am so happy to see the boy illustrating that point!
Very sweet. A beautiful look at a child's day - from the perspective of the child's toys.
This is the story of a little boy who looked forward to bedtime. He loved the kisses, the stories, the good night. But most of all he loved the conversations he had with his stuffed animal friends. And each one builds on the last, creati This is the story of a little boy who looked forward to bedtime.

And each one builds on the last, creating a picture of a complete day together. Then the little boy went last, describing his day and filling out the last of their day spent together. This is such a warm and friendly book. Each character had a slightly different day, told from their point of view. The characters glow on the page, some even seeing to shine light themselves.
What a great bedtime read! Recording your class discussions allows you to communicate information that is often left out of written notes or prepared slideshows. By recording class discussions, students who were absent can listen from home that same day or at a later date. While listening to the audio file they can follow along as the teacher and students clarify misconceptions, provide unique examples, answer questions as they come, and make meaningful connections with the content. This takes a huge load off of teachers who have many absent students in a single day and truly benefits students who are unable to attend class.
Recording your class discussions is extremely helpful to students when it comes to note-taking. I observe that note-taking is often a hindrance in my class discussions. Some students write very slowly, and therefore have a more difficult time keeping up. Other students get caught up on deciding what they should or should not be writing down, so they cannot focus on participating or listening.
Granting all students access to the audio-files helps remove these barriers. Students who are still developing their note-taking strategies can spend less time struggling and more time participating. When they are ready to review and record notes, they can listen to the file anytime, anywhere, and at their own pace, pausing the recording whenever necessary.
Students have a special way of asking or reminding you to do things right in the middle of a lecture or discussion. As I mentioned earlier, I juggle four different levels and classes of biology, as well as an 8th-hour AP chemistry class. My students range from the lowest to the highest abilities. Each class period is a unique lesson plan, and with each lesson plan comes unique requests and amendments. For the longest time, I would record student requests on a clipboard, which was always inconveniently out of reach when I needed it most.
In addition, writing down the requests interrupted discussions more than the minute period could afford, and I often found that my notes were indecipherable by the end of the day. Voice recordings changed this forever.
With voice recordings, if a student asks me to give specific feedback on a document, post an additional video or practice set to Google Classroom, or share anything, such as notes, photos or data while recording a discussion, I simply write down in the corner of the whiteboard the class period and timestamp min:sec of when the request was made see Figure 1.
Recording classroom discussions drastically changed student engagement in my classroom.
When I first started sporadically recording my lessons, I did it for my own self-evaluation. But, when I realized that recordings of class discussions were powerful tools for improvement, I informed the students that I would be recording and providing access to class discussions on a regular basis. Once the students were aware of this, I noticed that students who did not ordinarily participate in class discussions were now raising their hands more than ever. Love the article it was really good.
