The Best School Year Ever - Barbara Robinson

Another funny book about the Herdman clan!  I would use this book at the beginning of the year as a model for what not to do in the classroom.  As the students read about the Herdman's antics, allow them to create what they believe would be important classroom rules for your classroom.  This is something teachers will normally do anyway, but with the text, literacy could be incorporated.

Oh, the Places You'll Go! - Dr. Seuss

Oh, The Places You'll Go! is my favorite Dr. Seuss book of all time!  It even inspires me.  I have read this to classrooms for career and college week and taken excerpts to use for motivational assemblies.  In my 2-5 classrooms, I would like to use it toward the beginning of the year to motivate students to succeed.  During this time, we could focus on long term and short term goals for the year.  Always remind your students, "Kid, you'll move mountains!"
