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

The Rainbow Fish is a childhood classic that teaches children the importance of sharing. In this story we are introduced to Rainbow Fish, the most beautiful fish in the sea. He is selfish with his scales and does not want to share them, which quickly causes him to be friendless. Rainbow Fish seeks the advice from a star fish, who encourages him to share his beautiful scales. Rainbow Fish takes the star fish advice and shares his scales until they are all gone. Although Rainbow Fish no longer has his beautiful scales, he finds himself surrounded with beautiful friends. 

 

How I would use this book in my classroom:

I would read this book in my class with the hopes that my students learn the importance of sharing. I would read it during whole group and even allow my students to create their own rainbow fish during a mental break moment.

The Giving Tree
The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

The Giving Tree is one of my all time FAVORITES! If a teacher did a read-aloud with this book, I think it would be appropriate for kindergarten through second grade (some second graders could begin reading this independently). This book has the potential to teach students about sharing and relationships! One lesson to be done with this book would be to make a tree for the classroom and give the students an outline of an apple and have the students write down one way to be a good friend (they could also color the apples). The teacher can collect the apples, laminate them, and then have the tree up all year long for the class to have their own little reminders of how we need to treat others!

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

The book, The Rainbow Fish is a good story to read to your class because it teaches the importance of sharing. The Rainbow Fish was very beautiful and his scales were of every color, and throughout the story the fish learned to share his beautiful scales with the other fishes so everyone can look beautiful too. This book is geared to kindergarten to 2nd grade!
