One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish - Dr. Seuss

This is a great book to touch on adjectives and verbs. It is filled with words such as hot, small, tiny, mad, sad, etc. It also touches on math. This is an educational yet interesting book. Also kids love Dr.Suess so incorporating him into the classroom is a great idea. It is leveled 180 L.

The Pout-Pout Fish in the Big-Big Dark - Deborah Diesen,Dan Hanna,Daniel X. Hanna

This book takes you on an underwater deep sea adventure. The fish work together and understand their own strengths. It includes a lot of action verbs that are bold. Because of this I would use this book for an action verb lesson. It has a great moral and is also educational. It is leveled 670 L.

Run, Turkey, Run!
Run, Turkey, Run! - Diane Mayr

Written by Diane Mayr

Illustrated by Laura Rader

 

Turkey is scared of Thanksgiving, a day that is coming up quickly. When the farmer comes for him, Turkey runs across the farm and tries to fool the farmer by pretending to be various farm animals. The farmer isn't fooled by Turkey pretending to be a pig, a duck, or a horse, so Turkey runs for the forest. The farmer can't find Turkey pretending to be a tree! Turkey is safe from the farmer, until the farmer goes to cut down his Christmas tree... Run, Turkey, Run!

 

I would use this book to teach a first grade lesson on verbs. You could have students make a craft with turkey legs and "(verb), Turkey, (verb)!"

quote 2015-07-24 22:16
I wish I could invent a verb tense full of open spaces--a tense that didn't pretend to understand the precise mechanisms of which it spoke; a tense that could admit its own limits.
