The Abc's of me is a great book for all children. The book starts with the letter A and goes through the whole alphabet giving a different thought, feeling, or emotion for each letter. The book tells you the name of the emotion, thought , or feeling. Then explains what each is. After you read the page there is an exercise for the kids to complete like answering a question or making a list for each emotion, thought, or feeling.
This book is good for even small children to help them learn more about their feelings. I personally love books that teach kids instead of just entertaining them. The lessons do need to entertain them as well. This book does both. Theresa A. McKeown has done a great job. The illustrations in the book are done very well also.
Naughty Little Monkeys is a great way to incorporate behavior and the ABCs in one lesson for your lower grade levels. This is definitely a book I would use in kindergarten and 1st grade. I would read it to them during the first day of school and have them point out what is wrong with the behavior from the monkeys. I would then pass out a work sheet and ask them to underline the beginning letter (ABCs) of each wrong behavior. That way I could assess each student and see what letters, if any, that they know. This would be a good transition book to teach the classroom/school rules.
Listen, there is absolutely no reason to watch the first film. Zero. Not one decent segment in the entire movie. You don't have to watch this one either. But I do suggest that, if you have Netflix, you fast forward to the segment "S is for Split". It's now my favorite horror short. In fact, I would go as far as to say that this movie is worth the watch for that one segment alone. Juan Martínez Moreno did a fantastic job, as did all the actors and crew involved. I expected nothing but crap from this experience, and I came away with a new favorite short film. One star for the entire thing, but five stars for "S is for Split". Brav-the-fuck-O.
