A Bad Case of the Stripes

David Shannon Collection Set of 6 Books: A Bad Case of Stripes; David Gets in Trouble; David Goes to School; No, David!; The Rain Came Down; and Too Many Toys (David Shannon Books) - David Shannon

The intended audience of this book would be 2nd-4th grade. This book would be great for the first day or week of school and creating class rules and addressing bullying. The book has a great moral to always be yourself no matter what that means. You could read the book to the class and discuss what you want it means to be yourself. You could have students write a short story describing a time they may have went along with the crowd. Great book!


The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

This book could be read for kindergarten through sixth grade. A great activity for older grades is to read the book and then write about a way that they personally could give back to the earth. This book is about how a boy took and took and took from the giving tree his whole life and the tree was always there for him, so you could have a lesson around earth day where you teach students about giving back to the earth since it gives so much to us and then complete the activity previously described. LOVE THIS BOOK.

Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes - Eric Litwin, James Dean

Great book! This book could be used for K-3. This is a great book to read on the first day of school about being you no matter what! Also, about be eager to come to school. You could read this book to the students, then have a coloring sheet ready for them that has an outline of a show. Each student can then color in their shoes. Each student can show theirs to the class and the class will notice the differences but the teacher will tell the students that that is the whole point! Everyone is different and we are here to learn and to be eager to learn!
