How the Grinch Stole Christmas! - Dr. Seuss

This is one of my favorite stories ever; it cracks me up every time! The Grinch hates Christmas and plans to “steal” the holiday from the Whos. He pretends to be Santa and steals everyone’s presents and decorations. After the fact, the Whos all still find a way to celebrate, because they know that the true meaning of Christmas is not about the presents or decorations. When the Grinch sees this, he realizes that he misunderstood what Christmas is truly about.

 

 

In the classroom, this would be a great Christmas time read. Students could be reminded that the true meaning of Christmas (and other holidays) is about family and being together, not about presents.

The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

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.

Even though pirates do some things they shouldn't, they are always polite! This book describes all the things pirates do and how no matter what they are doing, they are always polite. I would use this book with younger students to teach manners.

The Rainbow Fish
The Rainbow Fish - Marcus Pfister,J. Alison James

Grade Level: Pre-K-K, 1-2, 3-5

Lexile Level: AD410L

The rainbow fish is a beautiful fish with many shimmering scales. When his friends come along and ask to have a shimmery scale, he tells all of them no and they all leave him. Then, when he wants to play with them, no one wants to play with him because he was selfish with his scales. He has to share his scales to get his friends back. I would use this book to teach the value of friendship to my students and to teach them to all be kind to one another. I would also use it to teach sharing.

Camilla Cream loves lima beans but no one else does and she wants to fit in. When she becomes very ill, she must be herself to get well again. I would use this book to teach students to accept each other and bully awareness.
