The Giving Tree
The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

The Giving Tree is a story told time and time again and still its meaning holds true. It will always be relevant. This is a long picture book that describes the love a tree has for a boy who only takes advantage of her generosity. As a class I believe we discussed lots of fun activities that could go with this book!

Kat and I wrote a lesson plan where we would get the kids engaged by asking "Have you ever taken anything without being appreciative or saying thank you? Has anyone ever taken advantage of your generosity?" at which point we would probably have a vocabulary lesson. Then at the end of the story, we wanted to use a PROBLEM/SOLUTION chart which is important for children in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade because it teaches the how to solve problems independently.

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.

John to be Mr October on ‘dull men’ calendar

The fact that there is a Dull Men's Club is pretty fucking great; that they put out a calendar of Dull Men is better; that Mr October runs an Apostrophe Appreciation Society is the very, very best. I read this aloud to my husband, who then chided, "You know, the apostrophe is typographically interesting, in all seriousness." Maybe I"m living with next year's centerfold? Hubba hubba.
