This is my favorite childhood book.
It's a rhyming book that teaches you teasing isn't nice.
It was originally published in the 1960's and has long since been out of print.
When I looked for it on Amazon 2 years ago, it was only selling first additions for $200- YIKES!
I own the original. But I never take it to school, because I'm saving it for my children and worry something might happen to it.
Then a few days ago, and I started to see bloggers talking about The Clever School Teacher.
So I checked it out. Oh my word, it is such a great resource for teachers!! You can by books that have already been organized by standards, genres, specific comprehension skills, grade levels, and a variety of other categories they are adding daily such as word study and writers workshop unit texts. You can purchase individual books or whole sets by each of the above categories. If you know what you want to teach, they know which books to use which eliminates the guess work!
On Deanna Jump's blog post about the Clever School Teacher she said to go look for your favorite book on the site. Well, that got me thinking, what skills could I use Never Tease a Weasel to teach to my firsties? For no rational reason whatsoever (since I knew such an old book would not be on this new website) I typed in Never Tease a Weasel into the Clever School Teacher search engine. And to my absolute shock, I found this!
It's my favorite childhood book re-released with new illustrations!! I couldn't believe it!
That's it! I will select a random winner next Sunday!!
