Mrs. McNosh Hangs Up Her Wash ( Books Teachers Love )

Mrs. McNosh Hangs Up Her Wash is a great read aloud for the Spring months, and is one that is already a part of my classroom library.

Books… one of my favorite things to read about and buy. Having a large classroom library is an understatement, and there are so many more books I want to add to my classroom library.

Ahh… May… all the April rain has come and now it’s time to watch everything bloom and grow. The grass is a beautiful shade of green, the smell of fresh flowers can be smelled, and new life is all around us.

One of my favorite parts of nicer weather is getting to hang clothes out on the line… nothing smells more fresh than a t-shirt that dried out on the line in the fresh air.

It’s a super adorable book about a lady who has just washed her clothes and is hanging them up to dry…

My students struggle with answering “why” questions, so we take any opportunity to practice them very seriously 🙂 We use the question cards throughout the story to help us find the answers to the “why” questions, and then we always take a short visual quiz.

Sequencing the events in a story is another skill we work on frequently… along with fine motor skills, which makes this sequencing activity perfect. We [sometimes] use the story to help us remember the order of events, but most of the time we use sequencing cards to help us. The bingo daubers just make it 1000% more fun, for me and for the kids.

One of my favorite activities to do with my kids after reading this story is a sorting activity. I love sorting activities to be honest… they’re great independent activities that I can put in work boxes for my students to work on.

My second favorite part of reading this story is the craft! They’re hidden gems, really… my kids practice fine motor skills with coloring, cutting, and gluing, AND writing – but half the time they don’t even realize they’re writing because they are so excited about coloring and cutting!

Depending on the student, we work 1:1 with different graphic organizers too.

I really like to include this set of activities in my emergency substitute binder. Because they’re prepped and ready to go activities, my sub can just take them out of the folder, grab the book off the shelf and teach!

PS. It’s a GREAT book to have for introducing laundry into your special needs classroom!
