I have so many favorite books I use for teaching in my classroom. This is part 2 of my top ten children’s books. If you didn’t get see part 1 please check out numbers 7-10.
The next book is also a fairy tale. It is called The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka. This is a fun story to read after you have read The Three Pigs fairy tale. This story is told by Alexander T. Wolf. It is his version of what really happened to the 3 pigs. This is a great way to teach point of view. I have also had my class do a mock trial for the wolf to decide if was innocent or guilty.
This book is Frogs by Nic Bishop. This is a nonfiction book for 1st-3rd grader students. It has close up pictures of all different types of frogs and gives cool facts about them. It is easy enough for young kids to read and understand. I used this whole book while teaching main idea and topic. Each page can be used by itself to find the topic and main idea. This is one of my students’ favorite books that I read to them this year.
Just a Dream is an amazing book by Chris Van Allsburg. I read it every year around Earth Day. This is a story about a little boy who is a litterbug. As he goes asleep that night, he goes on a journey into the future to different places on Earth. He sees what Earth would look like if everyone else didn’t care about keeping the Earth beautiful. The illustrations are also wonderful. This always brings up conversations about reusing, recycling, and reducing. This is also an easy book to teach cause/ effect and problem/solution.
Well did I choose any of your favorite books? Three more books down and three more to go! See you soon.
