I wanted to share a somewhat unusual book with you today. I bought Flying Henry by Rachel Hulin a couple of years ago and then forgot I had it. And while it's recommended for babies and pre-schoolers, I actually think it's a great book for older children, too.
Confession time: I dislike Show 'n Tell. A lot!
I've been teaching primary for 27 years now and I've decided that this is the year I give it up completely!
I've been messing around with different formats for the last few years but I've finally had enough and I'll tell you why.

I made a birthday chair!
And the best part? It took about five minutes. Yes! I love quick 'n easy projects.
We happened to have two folding black chairs collecting dust in the back of our garage. So once I cleaned up one of the chairs, it was good to go.
If you don't have a chair lying around, they're pretty cheap at WalMart (that's where we originally bought it).
We have a family of five raccoons living in our neighbouring trees and I've been enchanted with these little guys all summer long. Sometimes the babies sleep on a large oak branch that overhangs right beside our deck!
They've inspired me to make raccoon clipart, including this freebie, as well as learn all I can about these nocturnal creatures. I've never done a raccoon unit before, but this might be the year.
Below you'll find a brief review of one of my favourite raccoon books, as well as a list of other books I love, and some activities for home or your classroom.
