Charlotte's Web - E.B. White,Garth Williams,Rosemary Wells

This book is a great chapter book for 3rd-5th graders to read. The third graders can get this book on audio and follow along. This amazing book brings farm animals to life as they try their best to save a pig from being slaughtered. The things they do and the words they spell out ends up helping the pig named Wilbur from being killed and eaten.

The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

One of my top five elementary books as a child and as an adult. This incredible book symbolizes caring, sharing, and giving. It is centered around personification as the tree is seen with human characteristics. The beginning of the book the tree is happy to give and show love to the boy. At the end of the book the tree is still happy to help the old man in any way she could even with nothing else left but a stump. This is a great book for whole class read or even choral reading. This book will get your students excited during the Thanksgiving season as they tell what they are thankful for.

Click Clack Moo: Cows That Type - Doreen Cronin,Betsy Lewin

Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type

Guided Reading: Level M

This is a great story that I think will engage students. This book is about cows that can type. The farmer in the book finds it very weird but never finds out what the cows are doing. It a great story that gives animals human characteristics. This would be the time to teach students about personification.

Pete the Cat: Construction Destruction - James Dean,James Dean

Pete the Cat is a exciting and fun way for young children to learn. This series is most appropriate for kindergartners, and some of the lessons that came to mind with this specific story is sequencing and personification. After reading the story, we can discuss as a class the sequence of events in the story, and the teacher can have manipulatives ready for students to use to practice. For personification, after teaching the students about how this is used in literature, the teacher will read the story to the children. While they are listening they will record the different ways Pete the Cat is given human-like characteristics in this specific story. They can record this on a character web graphic organizer that the teacher gives to them before reading.
