A mink, a Fink, a Skating Rink: What is a Noun?
A Mink, a Fink, a Skating Rink: What Is a Noun? - Brian P. Cleary,Jenya Prosmitsky

part of a series of books designed to help students learn a specific topic. In this books case, nouns. It does it in a very comical and hilarious way involving cats. 

 

I would use this primarily on 1st and 2nd grade levels and i would use it in a unit designed to help foster language (primarily nouns) in this case.

Green Eggs and Ham
Green Eggs and Ham - Dr. Seuss

Another Dr. Seuss classic! This follows the antics of Sam who is trying to get his new friend to try green eggs and ham! He tried to get him to eat them in many different locations. 

 

Honestly i would have Dr. Seuss even in my 6th grade class! But for the purposes of this ...probably 1st grade. It is repetitive and helps reading fluency. Which is what i would use it for.

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs!
The True Story of the Three Little Pigs! - John A. Scieszka

This is a book that tells the story of the three little pigs as told by the wolf. This story gives a unique perspective to a much loved children's story. 

 

I would use this as early as 2nd graders. I would write a unit that would show how there are always two sides to a story and about how they should never take things on face value.

Coraline
Coraline - Neil Gaiman

A rather chilling book about a girl who finds this alternate world with alternate people in it who want her to stay with them forever. In the end however she outwits them and she lives happily ever after. 

 

Definitely keep this one on the 5th or 6th grade shelf only. I would use it in a unit on writing structure and plot

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - J.K. Rowling,Mary GrandPré

This is a story revolving around a boy who thinks their is nothing special about him and his foster family goes out of their way to make his life miserable. Then one day he discovers he is a famous wizard and goes to a new school and makes tones of friends and has a great adventure..

 

Really this could be used for multiple grades, but i would choose around 6th. They can test on it for one thing now, and if needed you can add it to many different units including anti bullying or creativity in writing .
