The Doors of Perception/Heaven and Hell
The Doors of Perception/Heaven and Hell - Aldous Huxley

I don't even know why I thought this might be a good read for me. 

 

Sure, this is the book the inspired The Doors but it is infinitely more enjoyable to listen to Jim Morrison's musical expressions of his experiments with drugs than it is to read Huxley's accounts of his, and even then this is only because the songs are so much shorter.

 

Not for me.

The Rainbow Fish
The Rainbow Fish - Marcus Pfister,J. Alison James

This book is great for understanding differences between people around us. We may not look the same but may have common interests. I think this book would be good for any grade but for reading purposes it may be good for higher grades because of the language and how many words are on a page. I would use this in my classroom by giving the students a blank picture of the rainbow fish and they are to decorate it in anyway they feel. This will demonstrate that everyone is different and unique. The students could also write positive attributes about themselves that makes them unique. The Lexile Level is AD410L.

Charlotte's Web
Charlotte's Web - Garth Williams,E.B. White,Kate DiCamillo

This book was one of my favorites when I was younger and going through school. I think this book shows so much friendship in it and would be good for any grade. It has a good message of not giving up on friends and always being yourself. I would use this in the classroom by allowing them to make their own web. They will be able to whatever they wanted but it had to describe them. I could also say you had to choose one person in the classroom and do a web for them. We would then hang these in the hallway so everyone could see our webs of encouragement. The Lexile Level is 680L.

Enemy Pie
Enemy Pie - Derek Munson,Tara Calahan King

I think this book would be good for bullying situations. The young boy in the story was feeling down because a teammate made fun of him and did not invite him to parties. His dad made an enemy pie. In the end the boys were able to put away their differences and see that they are not so different after all. I will use this book in my class by allowing the students to create their own enemy pie. This will be characteristics of bullies that will be written as ingredients such as 1 pint of mean words and 3 teaspoons of taunting. Then as a class we will create a friendship pie and include characteristics of friends. I think this could be read to 2nd graders and up. The Lexile Level is AD330L.

The Boy with Pink Hair
The Boy With Pink Hair - Perez Hilton,Jenn Hill

This book is about diversity. The students are to treat others fairly no matter what they look like or what their interest are. The purpose of my activity would be to find out unique things about the students classmates. I would give each student a piece of paper that has a clock on it, they are to find a person for the 12:00, 3:00, 6:00, and 9:00 slot. The teacher will require the students to place a boy at 12:00 and 6:00. The purpose of the males at this moment is that the story is about a boy who has pink hair and is not very accepted by his peers because he possess more feminine traits. The boys in the classroom may or may not be like the boy in the story. When the teacher says the time intended the students will meet with that person and write down 2 unique facts about them. I think by reading this book, the students will be able to see that people are different and do posses different traits than what society deems them as appropriate. I think 3rd grade and up would be good to hear this story. The ATOS level is 3.7
