Mrs. Thomas' Booklike pick
Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! - Mo Willems

When a bus driver takes a break from his route, a very unlikely volunteer springs up to take his place-a pigeon! But you've never met one like this before. As he pleads, whines, and begs his way through the book, children will think this book is super silly.

 

Lexile Measure: 280L

 

I would use the Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus activity from Teachers pay Teachers. You choose if you would let the pigeon drive the bus and list 2 reasons why (or why not). You then put it in sentence form.

Duck! Rabbit!
Duck! Rabbit! - Amy Krouse Rosenthal,Tom Lichtenheld

     This book takes on the questions of all time: Is It a duck or a rabbit? Well in this book, it depends on how you look at it! Perspective is everything in this book and it is a great way to teach that topic to kids. The topic of perspective is a tough one, but this book makes it easy!

     This book's reading level is ages 5-6 years. A great way to use this book in the classroom is to open discussion about opinions. Everyone has an opinion, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Open discussion and talk about how even if two people have different opinions, they can still both be right!

It’s definitely a rabbit!
Duck! Rabbit! - Amy Krouse Rosenthal,Tom Lichtenheld

This lovely story is about two unseen characters who have two different perspectives and ideas about the type of animals they are both looking at. It is on a AD300L Lexile reading level which is equivalent to a kindergarten reading level. Students will love to give their own opinion about what type of animal they think they are reading about, and will be able to work on opinionated writing as they argue their point.

Duck! Rabbit!
Duck! Rabbit! - Amy Krouse Rosenthal,Tom Lichtenheld

This book takes a simple optical illusion of whether the image shown is a duck or a rabbit and weaves a story around it. Two people are debating on whether its a duck or a rabbit depending on how they look at it. It also includes a subtle lesson for for children who don't know when to let go of an argument. For beginning writers, they can tell if they think it is a duck or a rabbit in one or two sentences and include a fact from the story. Then the teacher can puts everyone's papers together and explain how it is their opinion on what animal they think it is.

 

Lexile: AD 300L
