Room on the Broom is a fun book that I got to see being used in my placement this semester. Therefore I would personally use this book for kindergarten to second grade. The way I would use this book is, in the same way, I saw it used first hand. I would first use it to introduce a few new words to the students' vocabulary, such as cauldron and cloak. Then when reading the book I would use it to provide practice with rhyming words for my students. To do this I would read the first two pages with few pauses and then I would start to stop at the end of a sentence. This would give the students an opportunity to call out a rhyming word that they believe is used where I paused in the story.
The Snatchabook has come to town! Have no fear though. This is a good story to promote literacy at home and encourage children to grow a love of books. I would read this fun story at the beginning of the year to kindergarten, first, or even second grade students when I introduce their reading logs and the expectations of nightly reading. This is a fun rhyming story with superb illustrations to keep anyone's attention.grade level equivalent: 3.3
A Mrs. Gilmore favorite! This is just one of a set of cool books that are educational and fun!! In a classroom, this is a great resource to focus on nouns. Other books in this set focus on adjectives, adverbs, verbs, and other parts of speech.
For younger children, these books are fun to hear due to the rhyming words but they can also serve as a tool in a writing center to copy words. For advanced learners, they can even choose words from the text and then make their own sentences!
A fun book to hear aloud that is also a good teacher resource is a win :)
