Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom - Bill Martin Jr.,John Archambault,Lois Ehlert

This is a fun and very entertaining story about lowercase letters being used as children who want to climb up a tree. All of the letters climb up in order, only to fall down and get hurt. The parents (the capital letters) come to help the kids back up and brush them off. That night while the parents are sleeping, all of the children run back outside and start climbing the tree again. This story could be used to make all kinds of activities from playing out the story to making a musical game. I would use this story in my classroom for lower grades to help with letter practice and for higher grades to make musical activities.

Flat Stanley -Lexile level AD550L
Flat Stanley - Jeff Brown,Scott Nash,Macky Pamintuan

Flat Stanley, written by Jeff Brown, is about a little boy who wakes up one morning to find that he has been flattened by his board that fell on him over night. Stanley starts to discover that he can do some pretty amazing things that other children can't. He even get's to mail himself across the country to California. Stanley begins to go on lots of adventures such as, catching thieves, retrieving jewelry, and even being a kite. I would use the flat Stanley book as something that could be a first day of school activity. I could mail all of my students a flat Stanley or flat Stella over the summer and give them directions explaining to decorate their flat Stanley's or Stella, and to take them on adventures. They can either take pictures of all the places they go with their Stanley or Stella, or they can write about the adventures they went on. The first day of class they will share with the class everything they did together over the summer. This would be a great ice breaker and a great way for you to get to know your students. You can also display your students Stanley or Stella on the bulletin board for everyone to see, or you could have your students put their names on Popsicle sticks and then glue their Stanley or Stella to the sticks and use those as ways to call on students, or organize them into groups. I would use this for grades first through third.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar
The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Eric Carle

I remember this book and I loved it and to this day kindergartens feel the same way. I would read this in my kindergarten class! For a lesson with this book, I would try to think of some sort of activity. For example, get the students into groups and have them try to place cards in order of how the caterpillar ate. This would be teaching them sequence.

For Chatty Kathy!
My Mouth Is a Volcano Activity and Idea Book - Julia Cook,Carrie Hartman

Where has this book been all of my life? I've been told about this book and I have seen it so many places and I absolutely need it for my classroom library! This book would be excellent in teaching those new classroom rules. We all know that one student that just can't keep their lips together longer than 30 seconds! I would use this book to help my students learn "how to do school". I think I would be excellent in forming those new classroom rules collaboratively and through this story they can see why it's important to respect other people's voices!
