Goodnight Moon
Goodnight Moon - Margaret Wise Brown,Clement Hurd

Goodnight Moon is a classic story about a little rabbit saying goodnight to all of his belongings. The book has wonderful illustrations as well as rhyming. This story is a great book to include when teaching about rhyming words. It is ideal for young readers. As an extension activity, students could have visual cards and match each one to the card that rhymes with it.

The Lorax
The Lorax - Dr. Seuss

This is my ALL-TIME-FAVORITE Dr. Seuss book! It's definitely in my top-5-favorite of ALL TIE! This is a story about the Lorax, about tree, about nature, and about caring for the world around us. It teaches children many valuable lessons. I would put it at a Level M in the Fountas & Pinnell scale because it is pretty difficult language for young kids to read and comprehend by themselves.

As an activity, I would have students choose their favorite quotes from the book and decode the or explain them. I observed this being done when I was observing in a 5th grade classroom and the kids loved it! Then they got to watch the movie to enhance understanding and they loved it. I was in 9th grade the first time I saw the movie and I thought it was hilarious, so it's really great for all ages.

Sneetches
The Sneetches and Other Stories - Dr. Seuss

This book would be a PERFECT segway into teaching about diversity! This is the story about sneetches - some have stars on their bellies and some don't. This causes a divide between the two groups. I would read this aloud to my class because it is very long for a picture book and there are many made-up nonsense words that may confuse children if they are reading it alone. I could read it aloud to any grade level and I believe it could be easily understood, but if it were assigned a level for INDEPENDENT reading, I would categorize it as an M using Fountas & Pinnell's levels.

As an activity, I would incorporate some sort of diversity lesson. I may put the children into pairs to discuss how they are different, how they are similar, and how this makes them great friends! Perhaps a Venn Diagram would help facilitate learning and understanding of this concept.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom - Bill Martin Jr.,John Archambault,Lois Ehlert

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, written by Bill Martin Jr and is a fun book to read! This book is all about the alphabets and rhyming! This is a great book to read for teachers AND parents! I can use this book in my classroom for teaching the alphabets and rhyming words! I can play the song that goes along with this book so that the students can learn how to recite the alphabets without even knowing it!

 

5 Stars

I Ain't Gonna Paint No More!
I Ain't Gonna Paint No More! lap board book - Karen Beaumont,David Catrow

This book follows a creative child when he begins to paint everything and I mean everything! This book puts an emphasis on colors, but also on words that rhyme. An excerpt from the book provides a great example, "...So I take some red and I paint my...HEAD!..." Before this wild artist is finished, he will have painted his whole body and even some of the house. This book would be so engaging for students, because it has a song-like tune when read. I would read this aloud and have students recognize the rhyming words in the story with a clap and then have them come up with more words that could fit in that place in the story.
