The Little Red Pen -Lexile level AD300L
The Little Red Pen - Janet Stevens,Susan Stevens Crummel

The Little Red Pen, written by Janet Stevens, Is about a little red pen who is struggling to finish grading a pile of papers. The little red pen asks the pushpin, stapler, highlighter, etc. to help her finish the papers, but the others do not want to help because they believe the pen is to strict. Well, when the little red pen falls into the pit of no return (trashcan), the others have to come together to find a way to help her get out of the pit. This is a great story to teach children about helping others and working together with others. It is also a book that appeals to Spanish speaking students because the pushpin speaks Spanish throughout the book. This book is a great book to read during shared reading time, and to guide a discussion of working together, and helping others in need. I would use this book from first through fourth grade. This is also a great book to help incorporate activities, such as re-telling the story with the characters from the book, or using paint chips to review the theme, main character, setting, etc..

Chester Raccoon and the Big Bad Bully - Audrey Penn,Barbara Leonard Gibson

This would be a wonderful book to read the first few days of school! This could be introduced as a bullying prevention, and can also be considered for creating a "family feel" within the classroom. I would do this by telling the students in our class we all work together to achieve one goal. Another lesson that could be taught on this book would be inspiration stories, and the example of this from the story is the story that the mother told all of the forest animals. She used this story to inspire them to make a decision together to overcome and invite the bully to play with them.

Started reading this sometime last month around Xmas time before my kindle errored out and cut off the story. So this had an intriguing enough premise to come back to and I'm both glad I did and also a little underwhelmed in parts.



And that's about as much as I feel like writing for this story, here's a quote:

 

“For the last time, I’m not polishing his broomstick.”

“Though it sounded as if you might like to.”

“Wanker.”
