My Mouth Is a Volcano Activity and Idea Book - Julia Cook,Carrie Hartman

 

Brief Review:

My mouth is a volcano is about a young boy who has issues with his mouth being a volcano and saying what was on his mind. When it was his turn to present things about himself as a star student, he was interrupted by his classmates and was upset about being interrupted. His mom explained to him that, that’s how everyone felt when he did that himself.

Idea of how it can be used in a classroom:

My mouth is a volcano could be used to explain when good times to talk are and when it is not okay to talk. The teacher could have the students write about a time where their own mouth was a volcano and how did they fix the problem with their mouths being a volcano.

Reading Level & Leveling System:

Accelerated Reader

3.8; Third Grade Eight Months

Book Rating:

I would rate this book a 5 because it shows what the young boy was doing and how it was irritating the other students. And when it happened to him he didn’t like what the other students were doing it, And realized the other students feel the same way when he does it and learns a strategy of how to fix his volcano.

Corduroy - Don Freeman

 

Brief Review:

Corduroy is about a little stuffed bear in a store department who badly wants a home. When he finally meets a little girl who wants to take him home he learns that he's missing a button. That night he went on search for a button so he can be like new again. Its a good story for children because it personifies the stuffed animal to have feelings of being wanted.

Idea of how it can be used in the classroom:

This book could be used at the end of first grade or the beginning of second grade to teach students about personification of non-living things. The teacher could turn this into a writing lesson to get the students to personify one of their most loved possessions.

Reading Level & Leveling System:

Direct Reading Assessment

Transitional Readers

End of Grade One and Beginning of Grade Two

Book Rating:

I would rate this book a 5 because it is a classic and has a good moral. Because in the end he learned that even if he wasn't perfect the right person would still want him.

Anne of Green Gables
Anne of Green Gables - L.M. Montgomery

Lexile Level: 760 L 

 

This classic coming of age story by L.M. Montgomery tells the story of an orphan named Anne with a strong personality and a huge imagination. Anne stands out from her peers because of her uncontrollable imagination and her expansive vocabulary. Anne makes a great role model for students because of her individuality and her love of reading. Students could connect to her as she struggles through several conflicts. This book could be introduced to upper elementary students and could be used to teach reading comprehension skills. The book contains a large amount of advanced vocabulary and therefore would be perfect for teaching students to use context clues to infer the meanings of unfamiliar words. Students who need more challenging literature to read independently could benefit from reading this book.

Charlotte's Web
Charlotte's Web - E.B. White

Charlotte's Web is a favorite among children around the country! I bet by the time children leave 3rd grade, they have all read this book. It's about a young girl who has a pet pig named Wilbur and a very special spider named Charlotte. This book is for 2nd and 3rd graders in u personal opinion because of the interest level. But the DRA level is 40 which means the vocabulary would be more appropriate for 4th graders. I would read this aloud to my class and we would have spelling words/vocabulary words to accompany it. Throughout the story, I would probably give worksheets and quizzes to assess my students and make sure they know what is going on at all times. 

After the book has been finished, I would have my kids put on a play of Charlotte's Web! Each student would have a role and I really think it would be fun for them!
