Our class read the book My Mouth is a Volcano! It is about a boy named Louis. His thoughts are very important to him. In fact, his thoughts are so important to him that when he has something to say, his words begin to wiggle, and then they do the jiggle, then his tongue pushes all of his important words up against his teeth and he erupts, or interrupts others. His mouth is a volcano! My Mouth Is A Volcano teaches children a witty technique to capture their rambunctious thoughts and words for expression at an appropriate time. Told from Louis’ perspective, this story provides an entertaining way to teach children the value of respecting others by listening and waiting for their turn to speak.
So, of course, we had to erupt a volcano! Again and Again! So much fun!
