Give a helping hand
Jack and Rick (Green Light Readers Level 1) by David McPhail (2003-07-01) - David McPhail

The story of Jack and Rick is all about helping each other. Jack and Rick worked together to get across the river. My class would work together with a friend in this game. I would partner the students up and ask the students to stand side by side with your friend/partner. I would go around and tie one of the students legs to the other student. I would then ask the class to try walking or hopping together. We would then discuss what happened. I would also talk about what they learning about working together?

Count down to Birthdays
Only Six More Days - Marisabina Russo

In the book, Molly gets jealous of her little brother, Ben. He is planning his birthday and Molly is not enjoying all the attention being on him. She has a very negative attitude towards her brother throughout the entire book. At the end Ben gets two baseball cards, Molly's old roller skates, a gum rapper chain, and a letter. The letter is sweet from Molly and Ben feels special. In the classroom we would read this book and then talk about if my students have ever felt jealous of someone else. I would have the students talk about why they felt this way and something they could have done to change the outcome.

I would then have a birthday chart and we would fill this out together. I would write students birthdays on my chart and begin a countdown for everyone's birthday. The students would then get a sheet of paper where I could tell them how many more days until their birthday. We would start a countdown with helps students to learn to count backwards.

Compare and Contrast
Sisters - David McPhail

The book Sisters deals with the differences between these two sisters. I would want to use this book in my classroom to introduce compare and contrast. We would talk about how the sisters are different and alike. I would then call the students to the rug and ask them to help me complete a Vinn Diagram. The Vinn Diagram would be relating back to the story and how they are different. On one side we would talk about Sister 1 (names are not given in the story) and the other side we would discuss Sister 2. This would help the students understand comparing and contrasting and hopefully help them relate it to future books they decide to read.

Survival Camp
Danny and the Dinosaur Go to Camp   [DANNY & THE DINOSAUR GO TO CAM] [Prebound] - Syd•(Author) ; Hoff, Syd(Illustrator) Hoff

Danny the Dinosaur goes to camp and spends time with his friend. The dinosaur was included in every activity they did at camp. In my classroom we would read this book and discuss what it would be like to bring a dinosaur with you around everywhere. We then would play a game called "I'm going on a picnic" but instead it would be called "I'm going to camp". I would explain the rules to the students. The first student would say, I am going on to camp and going to bring an "Axe". Each student after that would have to repeat what the rest of the class said and continue on with each letter of the alphabet. This would help with brain exercises and learning letter of the alphabet.

Be Different
Chrysanthemum - Kevin Henkes

Chrysanthemum is made fun of for her name being different. In my classroom, I would teach students about how different our community is. From race, gender, sex, beliefs, and customs, there is many attributes that come into making you who you are. I will discuss with my class that you should always be accepting to one another. You may not know what they could bring to the table if you never gave them a chance. The students would be given a "secret friend" and would then have to write on construction paper one thing they liked best about their friend. We would share this to the class. It would bring my class together and make every student feel good.
