Silly Dilly Duckling
Silly Dilly Ducklling - Claire Freedman,Jane Chapman

Silly Dilly Duckling written by Claire Freedman is a 1.8 on the Accelerated Reading leveling system. This story is about a baby duck whose feather falls out and drifts in the wind. The duckling thinks she must find it. A hedgehog and mouse try to help Dilly find the feather. However, Dilly returns home empty handed. Dilly's mother then says that one day she will lose all her down so new big feathers can grow in. This makes Dilly happy. This is a perfect book for young readers just starting school. It can be put in a lesson about growing up to teach that change is good, not scary.

Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs - Judi Barrett,Ron Barrett

Lexile Level: 

 

Life in the wonderful town of ChewandSwallow is great, instead of snow, wind, or rain, they get a different kind of weather that falls from the sky three times a day: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But no one is too worried about the weather, until it takes a turn for the worse; the portions of food get larger and fall faster, until everyone in the town fears for their lives. With teamwork and marts, the residents are able to save themselves from the torrential food weather.

This book could be used as a kick starter for a science lesson or just for a fun read aloud. I would use this with grades 2nd to 5th grade.

Lexile Level: AD250L

 

This is a story that your kindergarten to first grade students would love and be engaged with. The old woman starts to swallow these silly objects that people would normally never swallow. This book would help with sequencing and retaining the memory and the order these objects were swallowed.

It can be used as a fun independent reading, or as an introduction to your school's upcoming dance. It could also be used to introduce a creative writing exercise about students finding out that things they thought were scary aren't really scary at all.
