The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

The Giving Tree is a story about the love between a tree and a young boy. As a child, the young boy would come to visit the tree and play around the tree. As the boy grew older, life began to really hit hard. He needed material things to survive or live the live he imagined for himself, so the tree gave and gave until she didn't have anything else to give. At the end it shows where the boy is now an elderly man and simply needs a place to sit. The tree was able to give him a place to sit. This book is centered round the concept of unconditional love. I would rate this book five stars out of five and is a 530L on the Lexile scale. An activity I would do with my future students would be for my kids to recall important details to an activity sheet about what the tree gave to the boy and what the boy used the items for. This will be good when working with comprehension of a text.

I love this book and the meaning behind it. The tree gives everything that it has to a boy who spends a majority of his life unappreciative. There is a big lesson to be learned in this book, even though it’s a short and simple read. This book’s meaning goes deeper than what you see on the pages, and that’s why it is so awesome.

 

 

In the classroom, this story would be great for teaching students about lessons, morals, and values.

The Giving Tree tells the story of a boy and a tree that grow old together, but as the boy grows older he becomes more needy and the tree gives him more and more. Eventually all the tree can give is a stump, but that is what the boy needs in the end. This book could be used in the classroom to begin discussion about what we should be more grateful for. I think this book is great for all elementary levels and is Lexile Level - 530. Great read for the classroom.

The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein is a 2.6 on the Accelerated Reading leveling system. This story is about a tree who gives everything to a young boy anytime he asks. As a child, the boy loves to play with the tree. When the boy grows older he asks for fruit, leaves and wood as he needs to eat and build a house. In the end the tree gives everything and is just a stump. The story circles back around with the boy as an old man simply sitting with whats left of the tree once again. This story is perfect for a unit on sharing and helping other people when they ask. It could also be expanded upon to teach students not to take advantage of other's kindness.

The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

The Giving Tree is a type of book that will really touch your heart, well at least it touched mines. It showed me how you can outgrow things and once you outgrow them, you kind of forget how important and how much impact certain things have on you. I can use this book in my classroom to show students how certain things can leave an impact on you, and give examples. 

Reading Level: 2.6 

Leveling System: GRE
