Always be on your best behavior
The Class from the Black Lagoon - Mike Thaler

This was one of my FAVORITE books growing up. I first read this book in second grade and I think that it would be a great book for kindergarten-2nd grade. It is a great lesson I would use to teach students that they should always be on their best behavior. It does not matter if their is a sub or me in the classroom. We would then create an anchor chart, as a class, of appropriate behavior when their is a sub. I would have it displayed in my class to always remind them. We would all decide that we do not want to be "the class from the black lagoon".

Be sweet to your things
The Day the Crayons Quit - Drew Daywalt,Oliver Jeffers

This is a FANTASTIC book to read to any grade to show them the importance of taking care of your things. I would make an anchor chart and have the students tell me the difference between being respectful and taking care of your belongings vs. overworking and not caring for their things. They need to know how important it is to take care of and respect all objects.

Animals Don't Need Clothes
Animals Should Definitely Not Wear Clothing - Judi Barrett,Ron Barrett,Ronald Barrett

This is such a fun book to read to lower grades in elementary school! I think that this is a great book for students to read and learn that animals don't need clothes because they are made to live without them. I would use this book to introduce nondiscrimination and that not everyone is like us. For example, when you look at the cover, you see that the porcupine cannot wear a shirt, but a kangaroo could. It teaches students, that not everyone is the same, but that does not mean that they are wrong.

Anti- Bullying!
Llama Llama and the Bully Goat - Anna Dewdney

I love love love this book! It is a great book to read to Kindergarten or first grade at the beginning of the year. It teaches the importance of no bullying through fun, fictional characters. I would read this book and then make class rules with my students. I think this is a great activity to introduce during the first week of school. It is also a great book to readdress if bullying starts up on your class. It will show that the llama does not like to be bullied by the billy goat and that no one wants to be a bully.

Everyone Deserves a Hug!
How Do You Hug a Porcupine? - Laurie Isop,Gwen Millward

How Do You Hug A Porcupine? is one of my absolute favorite books! I would read this to lower grades (K-2) and for each animal I would ask how they think they would hug that specific animal. I would then read the book and compare the answers from the students to the actual text. Next, we would go over how everyone deserves love and you should never judge a book by its cover. I would remind them how our classroom is filled with hugs and love and not discrimination.
