Posted on Aug 02 2009

KathySYesterday I introduced you to Kathy and her wonderful newsletter for educators of young children, Movement and Rhythm. Today, I’d like to tell you what reviewers are saying about her latest book, Moving Through All Seven Days.

Title: Moving Through All Seven Days

Author: Kathy Stemke

Illustrator: Tony Glisson

Publisher: Action Alley Education

Book length in pages:  32 pgs

Reviewer: Karen Cioffi (May 22, 2009)

Moving Through All Seven Days is a wonderful way to teach young children the days of the week. The days move forward with playful activities, “Slipping, sliding, spin and play, Fun on Sunday, that’s the way.”

Reading and exercise – what a combination! With bold and colorful illustrations it is sure to hold any child’s attention.

As an added feature, Moving Through All Seven Days includes an activity and learning section with: in class activities, spelling the days of the week, rhyming words, coloring pages and more. This is sure to be a hit in any preschool or lower grade classroom.

Moving Through All Seven Days is also a great way to teach the days of the week to your own little ones before they start school. I’ll be reading it to my 3-year-old grandson!

This fun book is full of lively rhymes, clever illustrations, and engaging activities sure to be fun for all the kids in your class — or out of it. I knew I was hooked when I found myself filling in the missing letters on the Complete Each Word activity.

Kathy Stemke, can I be in your class?  Pretty please?

Kathy Stemke’s Moving through All Seven Days offers a multifaceted approach to movement in the classroom that also offers a healthy dose of the language arts!

Rae Pica, Education Consultant, Early Childhood Physical Activity,,

Move and groove along with the whimsical characters of Moving Through All Seven Days as they slip, twirl, and glide you through the days of the week.  An activities resource to help reinforce the learning process of spelling the days of the week is a welcome bonus. It provides an ingenious way of getting the children up from behind their desks to experience learning through movement.

Children’s author, Kathy Ann Stemke brilliantly blends lyrical rhyme and the learning process in a fun and educational twist. Along with the vibrant illustrations created by Tony Glisson, Moving Through All Seven Days is a must have for preschool and kindergarten classrooms and no home library would be complete without it.

    I wish Kathy’s book had been around when my children were little! They’re 13 now (boy/girl twins); but, come to think of it, they still move through the days. 😉
