This is a good book to show for sequence of events and chronological order. I would use this in my classroom by having them all pick an animal from the book and getting in a group. We will then play the song and as their animal was said they would have to stand up and act like that animal. I could also use this as a time to relate to other concepts such as long vowel sounds. I would get a tissue box and dress it up as an old lady and they could say that the old lady swallowed long vowel sounds and have to place words in the box. I think this book could be read at any grade level. The Lexile Level is AD250L.
This book would be good for looking at the perception of situations or for looking at the creative minds of others. After we read the book, I would give them a piece of paper and they will draw a duck or a rabbit and we will vote on which animal we thought it was. Perception in a child's eye is important because they see things that we don't. I would want to foster their creativity and allow them to express themselves in whatever way they want. The reading grade for this book I think is Kindergarten and up. You can use this in any grade to show differences and perception. The Lexile Level is AD20L.
This book is about max and molly who are very hungry, however when they get to a town all of the people hide their food. Max and molly get the idea to tell he townspeople about stone soup and ask for help to make it. It turns out the townspeople put their own food and ingredients into the soup without realizing it. They all eat and dance the night away. I would use this book to go along with a creativity themed lesson. I would use this for any grade honestly, I would be the one reading it to them so it would be okay for younger grades. It is leveled 340 L.
