How the Grinch Stole Christmas
How the Grinch Stole Christmas! - Dr. Seuss

I love this book and movie! It definitely gets everyone in the holiday spirit so I would use it around the Christmas season. The Lexile level is 510L. I would use this in a 2nd or 3rd grade classroom. I would first read the book aloud to the class so that they know the story. Then we would sing the song together while they all have copies of the lyrics. Then we would go through the lyrics and find the similes and metaphors and write them on a T chart. There are so many fun things to do with How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

A Bad Case of Stripes
A Bad Case of Stripes - David Shannon

This funny story is about a young girl named Camilla, a lover of lima beans and a worrier about others' opinions of her. On the first day of school, Camilla wakes up to find herself covered in stripes. The Lexile level is AD540L. I would use this in a 2nd grade classroom and read it aloud. I would have a T chart on the board that everyone could see and it would be divided into two categories: Internal Traits and External Traits. As we read the book, we would stop to add to each category. At the end, we would talk about which category is more important and how having beautiful internal traits is more important than having beautiful external traits.
