The Class from the Black Lagoon - Mike Thaler

The entire Black Lagoon series is a series that I adored growing up, and is still a fan favorite of students of everywhere. This book is about a teacher that pictures the worst of the worst class for the year, and her imagination runs wild. Always at the end of any of these series, their imagination was way worse than the real outcome. It is a great lesson to teach students to be on their best behavior. I think a great lesson would be to use this as a writing prompt of what makes a great class and a terrible class. Great also for class discussion. 

Grade Level - K-2nd

Lexile Level - 480L

My Great-Aunt Arizona
My Great-Aunt Arizona - Gloria Houston

My Great-Aunt Arizona written by Gloria Houston is a 4.0 on the Accelerated Reading leveling system. This story is from the point of view of a young girl telling about her great-aunt named Arizona. Arizona teaches at a one room school house for many years. The children come and go, but she touches each of them in a special way. In the end on the story Arizona dies, but her niece knows she lives on in the hearts of all the students she had an impact on. I think this book is perfect for any teacher at any level to read. It can also be used in the classroom at the beginning of the school year to demonstrate that teachers are not scary, but here to help. It also is a good lesson in a little kindness goes a long way.
