Pop! The Invention of Bubble Gum by Meghan McCarthy
Pop!: The Invention of Bubble Gum - Meghan Mccarthy

Pop! The Invention of Bubble Gum by Meghan McCarthy is a level 740L on the Lexile reading level scale. Pop! The Invention of Bubble Gum is about not only the invention of gum because that has been around for centuries, but the invention of the best gum ever, bubble gum. It all started with an accountant at Fleer Gum and Candy started to mess around with different recipes. Students will be so engaged by this book, and maybe you can use this in science to learn how bubble gum is made. If it's not too complicated, maybe you could create some bubble gum in class.

Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! by Mo Willems
Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! - Mo Willems

Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems is a level I on the Fountas and Pinnell reading level scale. In the beginning of Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!, the bus driver specifically says do not let the pigeon drive the bus, but the pigeon tries to trick you the whole time into letting him drive the bus. This is the cutest book of all time! What you could do in your classroom is tell the students to write a persuasive piece of why you should or should not let the pigeon drive the bus, and why.

The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats
The Snowy Day - Ezra Jack Keats

The Snowy Day is a level J on the Fountas and Pinnell reading level scale. The Snowy Day is about a boy named Peter who realizes that it has snowed while we was sleeping. To celebrate, he puts on his red snow suit and goes outside to play. He runs into some challenges though, like being hit by a snowball by one of the older kids, but he makes it through and dreams that the sun came out and melted all the snow. When he wakes up he realizes that it snowed again, and relived his adventures like the day before. You could read this to your students a day after a snow day, and ask students to draw or write about what they did or would do in the snow. You could also ask students to describe what they would wear if it was snowing.

Where The Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak

A little boy named Max causes a rumpus before dinner and is sent to his room. In his room he goes on a journey where he becomes king of the wild things. He quickly misses his parents and his room and journeys back home to find dinner is waiting on him. 

After reading this book students could write about a time they got mad. They could also write about where they would like to go or if they have a place they like to go when they get upset.

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein is a level N on the Fountas and Pinnell reading level scale. The Giving Tree is a book about a tree who loves this boy. The boy loves the tree too, and he loves to play with the tree. However, the boy starts to grow up, and he doesn't come around and play with the tree as much until he stopped coming around completely. The times the boy actually came around, the boy is upset and wants things that the tree can provide but it takes pieces of her as he takes them. The tree becomes more upset the more he takes, until one day the boy is old and comes to visit the tree. The tree tells him that she has nothing to give him anymore, but the old man says all I need is a place to rest. The tree becomes so excited because an old stump is great for resting, and she gives this to him. This book makes me cry almost every time i read it. The Giving Tree could be a great book to teach students that if someone gives you something you should be grateful because you know how it feels to give something you love to someone. I have also created a lesson plan where students could retell the story by doing a problem/solution activity. Students could also make predictions through out the story, and maybe even create a new story where the boy gave things to the tree in return.
