The Giving Tree
The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

I love The Giving Tree and would recommend it to anyone! This book is on a second grade reading level for AR. There are many different lessons that a teacher could use for this book, for example series of events. For example, in what order did the tree give away its' parts.

Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What do you Hear?
Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? - Bill Martin Jr.,Eric Carle

This is a good book that kids enjoy and have fun with if the teacher really gets into reading it. I would recommend having this in your classroom library for any teacher from kindergarten through second grade. As a class I would want to do an activity for either kindergarten or first grade. I would give each child a role then when reading the book they would have to stand up for whatever role they received. (example: stand up and make a snake's hiss when the teacher reads that part). Then I would group them together having one of each animal in the group and have the students place them in the correct order based off the book.

Olivia
Olivia - Ian Falconer

I would recommend this book for kindergarten. It's a cute little book about a pig named Olivia. This book goes through Olivia's day and can easily be used for a some sort of class lesson plan. One activity could be having the students come up with a graph as a class (since this is kindergarten).One side could be activities that Olivia actually did and the other side could be activities pretended that she did in her head. This book could also provided many art activities that a teacher could come up with to complete with the chart group work.

No, David
No, David! - David Shannon

I like this book and remember reading it when I was in school. I would have this book in my classroom library from kindergarten through third grade. I would use this for a class activity for kindergarten and first grade. Some of the ways you can use this in the classroom is to make a list of not what to do based of what David was doing. A teacher could also use this for kindergarten and talk to the students about what they believed David was feeling during the book.

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie
If You Give a Mouse a Cookie - Laura Joffe Numeroff,Felicia Bond

If You Give a Mouse A Cookie is a great book that most kids seem to enjoy. This book is on a first grade reading level so I would recommend having it on your bookshelves for kindergarten through second for those advance and slower readers. For a class lesson I believe it will work for kindergarten through second as well. You could do a couple of math lessons with this book. For example, if I gave a mouse two cookies and Jess gives him one cookie how many would he have. Language arts wise the only lesson that I can come up with is a sequence of events. Give each students the events that took place (hair cut, sweeping, and other in the book) and allow them to work in groups to see if they can place them in the correct order.
