You're Not The Only One Having A Bad Day
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day - Ray Cruz,Judith Viorst

Guided Reading Level: M

Grade Level: K-2nd

Summary: Alexander is having the worst day of his life! It's so bad, he wants to move to Australia. Let's be honest. Haven't we all had days like this? This book is something that young readers can absolutely relate to, and that's what I love about it! One could teach children that every day will not be perfect. Sometimes people go through things. However, these things make you a better person because you learn from them. They're what make you who you are!

Idea: I will most definitely be using this book for a cause and effect lesson. I will also use this book to house a class discussion on what makes a good day, as well as a bad one. The more students are able to relate to the text, the more information they will be able to gain from it!

Olivia - Ian Falconer

Lexile Level: AD 270L 


This book is about a young girl pig named Olivia. She is good at a lot of things and never gets tired of doing those things. She enjoys things like singing songs, dressing up, building sand castles, dancing, painting on walls and more. She has a little brother, who would sometimes just not leave her alone. Throughout the story, Olivia does many different activities that she loves to do. She does all these fun activities to wear out her family members because she never gets sleepy. But finally at the end of the story after a long day Olivia lays down in bed to read a story with her mother, and finally goes to sleep.

This is a book that most kindergarten or first graders can relate to because of the activities that Olivia does throughout the book. This book would be an enjoyable read for younger students.

I think this would be a good book to read in the first and second grade.  It shows a young  kid who may be going through some of the same things they are.  For example, Alexander's best friend tell him he is no longer his best friend, but his THIRD best friend.  This is something that happens often in elementary school.  I think this book would bring a little humor to the classroom while still showing the students that not every day is going to be perfect.  This could also be a good opportunity for a writing prompt about the worst day they have ever had.
