My Mouth is a Volcano
My Mouth Is a Volcano Activity and Idea Book - Julia Cook,Carrie Hartman

"All of Louis thoughts are very important to him. In fact, his thoughts are so important to him that when he has something to say, his words begin to wiggle, and then they do the jiggle, then his tongue pushes all of his important words up against his teeth and he erupts, or interrupts others. His mouth is a volcano!" This book can be used in the classroom to introduce classroom rules, expectations and routines. It can lead to a discussion on what should be appropriate to ask the teacher and what the student should ask a peer. The book is a great engaging materials that allow students to learn how to follow procedures.

When Sophie Gets Angry -- Really, Really Angry - Molly Bang

When sophie gets really really angry  illustrates a girl named Sophie who gets angry and runs away. This book would be great to introduce emotions in the classroom. Anger can be very upsetting for some children, therefore this book displays that everybody gets angry sometimes. The discussion can also lead to what you can do to deal with anger. This book can also be read to the class while introducing routines and expectations.

The One and Only Ivan
The One and Only Ivan - Patricia Castelao,Katherine Applegate
"Inspired by the true story of a gorilla who spent 30 years alone in a cage at an indoor zoo in a mall". This book is about a gorilla named Ivan and that lives in a cage in a mall. The book displays the life of Ivan and how his current life prevents him from remembering what his old life in the jungle was like. The book illustrates all of the obstacles he goes threw while reciting the enclosure.  Ivan loves to paint and the  custodian's daughter also loves to paint and shares her supplies with Ivan. This allows him to find new ways to express his experience. The One and Only Ivan illustrates how art is a powerful and beautiful way to express emotions and communicate with others. This book could be used in a classroom to introduce art in the community. The students could also research about importance artists and how their art plays an important role in history.

The Pout-Pout Fish Goes to School - Deborah Diesen


Brief Review:

The pout-pout fish goes to school is about a young fish who is trying to learn where he belongs in school, and how the teacher believes in the student(s).

Idea of how it can be used in a classroom:

The pout-pout fish goes to school could be used to teach new students that its okay not to get things at first because you have to learn things before you know how to do things. The teacher could have the students write about a time where they felt overwhelmed and thought they just were not smart and will never get it and how they overcame their thoughts.

Reading Level & Leveling System:

Pre-K to K

Book Rating:

I would rate this book a 4 because it shows students its okay to not know everything at first and it takes time to learn things first. It also gives students a sense that they belong in school and all students are smart, it just needs to be worked towards.

Today I Feel Silly...and Other Moods That Make My Day
Today I Feel Silly: And Other Moods That Make My Day - Jamie Lee Curtis,Laura Cornell

This book is all about the different moods that a person has and is showed through a child. The little girl in the story has different things going on in her life and each new thing gives her a different emotion. These emotions are felt by everyone at some point or another and are great to be discussed in the classroom to let children know that emotions are a normal part of life. 

After reading this story, the teacher could make a chart and ask students to write down things that make them feel a certain way and record it on the chart so that students can see that different things make people feel different ways. The most important part of this story is to show that not everyone reacts the same way to the same situation. Everyone is different and each person should be accepted.
