Mrs. Wishy Washy Giveaway!

I was recently contacted by Hameray Publishing to review Joy Crowley's new collection of easy reader books. I've used Mrs. Wishy Washy in my classroom for years, so I was thrilled to check out what Hameray was offering!

I received two books to review (Disclosure: I received complimentary products for review.  All opinions are my own and this is not a compensated post.)


"Wishy-Washy Clothes" is a short, easy to read book in the "Early Birds" series that focuses on predictable text and high frequency words.  This would be perfect for emergent readers. If you read aloud Mrs. Wishy-Washy's Farm beforehand they will have the added benefit of making text -to-text connections, as well as having the schema of Mrs. Wishy-Washy and her animals. The humorous text and pictures are high interest as well.

The 2nd book I looked at was "Mrs. Wishy-Washy and the Big Wash from the Joy Cowley Collection. In this book, Mrs. Wishy Washy takers her animals to town to find water. Again, the story and illustrations are humorous, which will make it high interest. As well, the book contains rhyming words and onomatopoeia and would be great for teaching punctuation such as quotation marks. I appreciated that at the back of the book there were some teacher tips for Before, During and After reading.

There are already a ton of Mrs. Wishy-Washy resources at Making Learning Fun, and I often use Mrs. Wishy-Washy when I teach my farm unit, so I think that adding these easy readers to my book library will be a big hit! If you're interested in picking up some of these books you can use coupon code ZJCC13 now through 6/30/13 for 20% off your purchase at Hameray Publishing.

I love Mr and Mrs Wishy Washy! I always use these books when I teach Ww. I also have a Mrs Wishy Washy puzzle that my kids think is the best.

I LOVE Mrs. Wishy Washy and all the Wishy Washy books. My students just did a small group activity using the Big Book "Mud Walk". They used animal crackers and pudding to get the animals "muddy" then licked them "clean". They LOVED it! I sure hope I can win some free loot for my students!
