Grandma’s School #6

Armon holding the donkey, the dog, the cat and the rooster from the Bremen-Town Musicians.

Well, we have to have not so good days once in a while, don’t we? Armon was very high when he arrived, like he had sugar donuts for breakfast! I doubt he did…

We read a book, as usual. I forgot to tell you what book we read yesterday. It’s one of my all time favorites! The Bremen-Town Musicians retold by Ruth Belov Gross. I have a statue to go with the book that the kids love to hold as I read the story. This book is a favorite of all my grandchildren. I’ve warned the kids about breaking my statue and I think Armon looks like he’s scared to death he’s going to drop it! I’m really not that hard on the kids! I asked him to hold it on the bottom so we could see it all, that’s why he’s nervous! Bless his heart!

Then we did our usual work with flash cards, reading and math. We worked on the alphabet book some more. Hopefully tomorrow will be a more productive day.

    I am not familiar with this story, so now you have my curiosity up. I’ll look it up. It wasn’t on my kiddy lit. list.
    I can tell you are such a good grandma and teacher. It comes through your writing. 🙂

      Thanks, Sue. This is a really fun book to read. Two of my granddaughters ask me to read it to them every time they come to visit. It’s an old book and I’m surprised you don’t know it. I actually bought this particular book and the statue at a YARD SALE years ago!!! It was my best all time purchase! I remembered the story from when I was a girl. A librarian at an elementary school said if I ever wanted to sell it to be sure and let her know! But I told her, “Sorry, it’s not for sale.” Your grandkids would love it too!
