I have choosen Agatha Christie as my wild card author and A Murder Is Announced is going to be the book that I´m reading for the "Baker Street Irregulars" square. I´m currently not in the mood to read a YA thriller.

A student’s worse nightmare!
Miss Nelson Is Missing! - Harry Allard,James Marshall

Another classic book with a hidden lesson for the classroom. Miss Nelson is Missing is about the ultimate reverse psychology on students in the classroom that don’t quite want to do as they are told. Of course it is much exaggerated but very hilarious to watch the student’s faces react to all that the “substitute” teacher is doing. I always thought it would be fun to dress up as Miss Viola Swamp for a classroom one day, but only as a joke of course. This book is a great lesson in integrity and respect in the classroom. I would love to use this book in a compre and contrast lesson and allow the students to work in groups comparing Miss Nelson to Miss Viola Swamp from how they look and talk to how they act.

Miss Nelson Is Missing! - Harry Allard,James Marshall

The students in room 207 were very misbehaved for Miss Nelson, but when she disappears, a new teacher makes them do work ALL DAY! Miss Nelson is Missing!! When Miss Nelson comes back the students in room 207 never misbehaved again! I would use this book to work on expression and voice when reading!

Miss Mingo and the First Day of School - Jamie Harper


Brief Review:

Miss Mingo and the First Day of School is about the first day of school in Miss Mingo’s Classroom. She has the students share what makes them different from the other students.

Idea of how it can be used in a classroom:

Miss Mingo and the First Day of School is a great resource for teachers to teach different types of animals and what makes them different from each other and to support the differences in everybody. The teacher could have the class sit in a circle and have the students name one thing they think separates themselves from the rest of the class.

Reading Level & Leveling System:

Accelerated Reader

3.6; Third Grade Sixth Month

Book Rating:

I would rate this book a 3 because it does let children know its okay to have differences from other students but if a student was really different it might not be a great idea because sometimes other students might not be so nice and understanding that its okay to be different.

Wilma Jean the Worry Machine
Wilma Jean the Worry Machine - Julia Cook,Anita DuFalla

Wilma Jean the Worry Machine, written by Julia Cook and Anita DuFalla, is an awesome book to read to students. Wilma Jean worries about everything concerning school, whether it’s getting called to work a math problem on the board to not having anyone to play with during recess. The teacher does an activity which allows the children to write worries they can and cannot control. By doing this activity, this helps Wilma Jean control her worries. It gives parents and teachers insight on what students worry about on a daily basis. Reading this book to the class will help them accept things that they can’t change! I can do an activity similar to what the teacher in the story did, have the students write out the worries that the can and cannot control.
