The kids in Room 207 were misbehaving again. Spitballs stuck to the ceiling.  Paper planes whizzing through the air. They were the worst-behaved class in the whole school. So begins this quirky classic, first published in 1977 and still relevant today as a lighthearted reminder to show our appreciation to those we value. The students don’t proffer a shred of respect for their good-natured teacher Miss Nelson, but when the witchy substitute Miss Viola Swamp appears on the scene, they start to regret their own wicked ways. James Marshall’s scritchy, cartoonish full-color ink and wash illustrations are hilarious. A back-to-school perennial!

The students in room 207 were very misbehaved for Miss Nelson, but when she disappears, a new teacher makes them do work ALL DAY! Miss Nelson is Missing!!

5.0 Miss Nelson is Missing
Lexile Level: 340L So this is book would be good to read to grades 2nd-4th. It starts off with room 207's teacher being out, so they have to have a substitute, Miss Viola Swamp who is not like their teacher at all. She is strict, moody, and she wears all black. When she comes in the room, the kids...

4.0 Miss Nelson is Missing
Miss Nelson is Missing is a fun story about a teacher who is absent one day and has a mean substitute. This book would be a great read aloud for many things. One idea is to compare and contrast the teacher and the substitute. The students could also draw inferences from the actions of the characters...
