The Day the Crayons Quit - Drew Daywalt,Oliver Jeffers

When Duncan goes to use his crayons he finds notes from all the crayons and how they are feeling! Red is overwhelmed. Purple is tired of being colored outside the lines. Beige doesn't like to be called light brown or dark tan and doesn't like being in second place to Brown! Grey is tired. White is feeling empty. Black doesn't like to be an outline. Green is writing for Yellow and Orange because they won't talk, they both think they should be the color of the sun! Blue is feeling like he needs a break, Pink is feeling unused and Peach doesn't like having a cover! Duncan has to figure out how to make all the crayons happy so he can continue to color! I would use this book to work on expression and voice!

Wonder - R.J. Palacio

Auggie is a home-schooled fifth grader who wants to experience more. He has a medical condition that has left his face disfigured. On his first day, the student that was supposed to help him starts to bully him. Auggie is bullied by this classmate, Julian and Julians friends, but makes a couple friends throughout the year. The school year is full of Auggie being bullied but at the end of the school year Julian (the bully) leaves for a new school and Julians friends help defend Auggie from the seventh graders. I would use this book to talk about everyones differences and how important it is to be kind to each other.

Oh, the Thinks You Can Think! - Dr. Seuss

Everyone can think up anything if you open your mind and try! I would use this book to talk about certain vocabulary words (ex: -ink). The students could also be given an animal/object and have to write what it looks like, sounds like, feels like and what it eats.

Oh, the Places You'll Go! - Dr. Seuss

One of my all time favorite books! The protagonist leaves home and travels through many different landscapes and places. He continues to explore and think about the places he will eventually travel to! I would use this as an end of the year book with students writing where they would like to either travel to or where they would like to end up. It could also be used to work on fluency!

Sideways Stories From Wayside School - Louis Sachar,Adam McCauley

Instead of 30 classrooms built NEXT to each other, 30 classrooms were built ON TOP of each other, but without a 19th floor!! Each chapter is a different story about one of the students in the class and of the craziness that happens at the school in Mrs. Jewls class on the 30th floor! I would use this book as a continued lesson, each chapter could be used to identify different traits of the characters or sequence of events and after reading the students could write their own crazy story based on the classroom.
