The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

This book is super sweet! A tree that loves a little boy that grows up into a man, gives everything it possibly can for him. I would use this around the time of the 100 days of school. Create a giving tree in the classroom and we work towards 100 acts of kindness. Add each on a leaf.

Always Give a Helping Hand.
The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

This book opens your heart up and shows the importance of giving relentlessly and with love. The illustrations are simple, yet so powerful. The storyline really touches children of all ages, as it progresses into the future, into scenarios in which we all can relate to. A wonderful activity students could do would be to create their own giving tree and write compliments to other students and then present them.

The Giving Tree
The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

The Giving Tree is a great classic read for all ages! This book teaches about a taking and giving relationship between a boy and a tree. The tree is happy providing for the boy all the way through the book. There is only a brief moment when the tree is not happy but even in the end she can still provide the one last thing that the elderly "boy" wants. I would use this book in my classroom to talk about how you can only take so much without giving.

This wonderful piece of literature is suitable for children of all ages, and adults too! This story promotes kindness and sharing. I think this book would be perfect to read at the beginning of the school year as friends are just settling into the classroom. This book would be perfect for sequencing, and I would even turn it into a center. This text would also be perfect to read during Earth Day!

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

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein is a phenomenal classic for every generation! This book teachers such an important lesson that is appropriate for readers of all ages. I enjoy the simple illustrations and language which is great for beginning readers. The story line is easy to follow and interesting.

 

I would use this in the classroom when learning about finding the central message in a text. After a lesson on finding the central message, I would read this book aloud with my class and discuss the central message of this book with the students.
