There are 5 book that I must have for the beginning of the school year to help build our school community.
My number one book is
Meet Scary Mary. In the barnyard, she rules the roost. If the other animals come near, she chases them away! She keeps all the sunflower seeds to herself and builds a fort to keep the others out. Mary even practices making scary faces! Until one day she is alone. She clucks by herself, plays games by herself, and eats dinner by herself. Soon, Mary realizes that being scary can be lonely!
It's okay to need some help.
It's okay to be a different color.
It's okay to talk about your feeling.
It's okay to make a wish...
I love starting the year out with this book, it shows the children that it is okay to just be who they are.
It has been a bad day for Horace. A very bad day. He’s come home feeling mean. But his mother knows just what to do to put a smile on his face!
As you read the book have the children do what is happening in the book, they will want to hear it over and over again.
Roxaboxen celebrates the imagination of children who, no matter the time or place, can create whole worlds out of what they find around them.
This book will help to show children that they can create a whole world around them and it teaches the teacher that we need to provide what children need for their imagination.
