“the Dusky Devastators of the Depression!!!!!!“
This book tackles themes of race, poverty, abuse, optimisim, and compassion. I think this would be a great book to read as an independent reading book for children in fourth grade and up.
This is very kid friendly and incorporates the silliness that keeps kids attention. I think I would use this as a extension activity at home for parents and students to do with each other. Read the book at school and send home materials to explore outside.
“simple, basic skills for cartooning“
I would love to not only have this in my classroom library, but also to incorporate it into some lessons that might include numbers or letters. I think this would be a good activity before a break or during a center.
This book is a creative way for students to learn to comic and draw while incorporating ABC's and 123's. I think the way this is set up is really user friendly and grabs the students attention.
In 1991, mountain climbers on the Niederjoch Glacier on the Italian-Austrian border came across something unexpected: a body.
This book seems too boring for me and reminds me of the books I was supposed to read in school. I cannot keep my attention through these books so I do not expect my students to do the same.
This is a typical science book. They show factual pictures and present it in a very professional and meaningful way.
“The baby is the size of a melon“
I do not see myself using this in my classroom unless there is a child that is really struggling with a new sibling coming along, otherwise, this book would be one that I would recommend to parents or use on my own.
This book is a visual and descriptive way to explain pregnancy to children. This book walks through each month and talks both about baby and mother in kid friendly language.
“I, too, dislike it, reading it.“
I think this would be cool to use when introduing poems, especially for kids to just flip through. If they find something interesting, they can go and do some more research and keep reading more.
This is a huge collection of samples of poems from a pleathora of areas. They want to get kids intersted and get their minds going.
“I'm gonna take a piece of sunshine and paint it all over my sky.“
I think this would just be a fun, cool thing to have access to in the classroom. There could totally be something in there too that the class as a whole has a hook onto and can be played when cleaning up or transitioning as well.
A collection of poems by famous people. They speak on anything you can imagine! It is a really cool concept, it comes with a CD because most of the poems have beats that go with them.
