Favorite Read Aloud Linky Party

I've decided to host my first Linky Party! Hopefully this will all work! :)

As the school year is getting closer I start to think about all the books I love to read to my class.  One of my favorite books that I enjoy reading with my Kinders is Emily's First 100 Days of School by Rosemary Wells.

If you have never read this book you HAVE to check it out.  There is a short paragraph for the things that Emily does counting up to the 100th day of school.  I start this book on day 1 and only read day 1.  Then day 2 we count to 2 and read day 2.

The fun thing that I love about this book is that I have made "special days."  So bare with me but if we were on day 100 we would count and certain days have a fun phrase.

Here's how it goes:

1,2,3,4,5,6,7 days in a week, 8,9,10,11, 12 is a dozen,13, 14, 15, 16 ,17,18,19,20, 21,22,23,24 is two dozen, 25 cents in a quarter, 26 letters in the alphabet, 27,28, 29, 30 days has September, April, June and November, all the rest have 31, except February now we're down, 31,32,33,34,35,36 inches in a yard stick...that's the last "special day."
The kids LOVE reading and counting everyday.  This becomes a book that they also love to check out of the school library.

So I know you all have books and activities you love to do with your class.  

So link up and share. :)
