The Juice Box Bully: Empowering Kids to Stand Up For Others - Bob Sornson,Maria Dismondy,Kim Shaw

This children's book talks about the very real issue of bullying in a way that child can know how to defend themselves and what to do in bullying situations. My favorite part about this book is that it promotes that a bystander has a lot more control than one may think, and that one voice to speak up may make a world of difference. I would like to use this as a group reading book if I felt like a bullying problem was occurring or even the first day to establish rules and expectations. This book also has a "bully free policy" at the end. I would like my class to come up with out own bully free policy as an activity. Great read for the first day of school! 

Grade Level- appropriate for all elementary ages

It's Snowing, It's Snowing
It's Snowing! It's Snowing!: Winter Poems - Jack Prelutsky, Yossi Abolafia (Illustrator)


Pre K-5

This is a poem story about winter.  This story tells all about winter and what the students can expect to occur during winter.  I would do a lesson on differences.  Snowflakes are all different just like people are.  The students would fold paper and cut shapes out and when it was unfolded it would have a design.  Each student's design/snowflake would be different just like they all are.  The students will see that they all have individual snowflakes that are similar in some ways and different in others.  They can apply this to their classmates.  Some of them will be more similar or different.

The Chalk Box Kid
The Chalk Box Kid (Stepping Stone Books) - Clyde Robert Bulla
  • 270L


This book is about a little boy who moves to a poorer part of town.  He does not have any friends at school and has no one to talk to.  He does not have anywhere to play until he discovers an old chalk factory.  The little boy begins to draw flowers and designs on the sides of the building and he grows through his art.  I would like to use this story to allow the students to make new friends.  I would place pieces of paper at each student's desk.  They would go around and write one nice comment on each student's paper.  The students would have these to look at on a bad day.  They would all feel loved and accepted by their peers.

Pumpkin, Pumpkin
Pumpkin Pumpkin - Jeanne Titherington


Pre K-2

This book is about a little boy who plants a pumpkin seed.  He waits for it to grow and then he carves it.  He makes sure to save seeds for next year.  I would love to use this book to discuss the life cycle during Halloween time.  I would read the book and discuss the life cycle of plants and their similarities to life cycles of animals.  I would also let the kids decorate their own pumpkin.

Splish, Splash, Spring
Splish, Splash, Spring - Jan Carr,Dorothy Donohue


Pre K-2

This story is about the weather and changes that happen during springtime.  It includes all the rain and the things that come after the rain.  I would love to use this lesson in my classroom.  I would have the students act out all of the events in the story; such as, splashing in the rain.  As we read the students would act out previously decided actions.  This movement would help them to remember what things go along with springtime.
