Thank You, Mr. Falker - Patricia Polacco

Talk about a great book for discussing students with learning disabilities! I loved how Mr. Falker truly cared for Trisha. He noticed a problem in her writing and did not let it set her back. He worked with her to overcome dyslexia and not let it control her life. This book truly highlights that teachers can make a huge difference in their students lives. For students, this highlights that even if your own weaknesses there are ways to overcome! The teacher could have an activity in class where the students write one weakness they feel they have and one strength on a notecard and the teacher could keep this for her own record and work throughout the year to improve students weaknesses and shine a light on each student's strengths! There are endless possibilities with this book but I feel shining a light on learning disabilities and strengths and weaknesses would be perfect! I recommend this book for all teachers and students! This book is geared for grades 3rd-5th specifically.

The Thank You Book
The Thank You Book (An Elephant and Piggie Book) - Mo Willems,Mo Willems

The Thank You book by Mo Willems has a Lexile level of 180L. Throughout this text, Piggie thanks lots of characters for various things. Gerald is concerned throughout the text that Piggie is forgetting to thank someone. Piggie cannot figure out who is being forgotten. Finally, Gerald tells her that she needs to thank their readers. Piggie then thanks all of the readers and then reflects on what a lucky pig she is. I would read this in a lower elementary classroom to promote thankfulness. I would challenge the students to thank their classmates, their teachers, the custodians, lunchroom ladies, and everyone else who does something for them. Ideally, I would like to keep a running record of each time the students thanked someone and at the end of the week offer a reward.
