I have had reading the book “Everybody Needs a Rock ”
on our lesson plans for a few days. It just never seemed to work out. Today it did! Everybody needs a rock is a really cool book it’s especially cool if you’re a kid and you love rocks.
The book gives 10 rules for hunting rocks and they are wonderful and amazing rules. Rules like ” your rock needs to be not as large as an apple and definitely not as large as a horse because it won’t fit in your pocket.”
After reading this special book of course we needed to go on a rock hunt.
Reading books like this increase vocabulary with children. One of the rules was ” the rock should be found on a mountain or in an alley.” Do we have a mountain? Of course not- but we do have an alley !
The children loved hunting for their special Rock because well – everybody loves a rock.
