Miss Majors' Collection

Hello! I am Brittany and my dream is to become an Elementary School Teacher. I can not wait to graduate in May 2018 and to have my own classroom. I have always wanted to make a difference in the world and this is my way of giving back. I love to seeing children grow and be successful in everything they do.

Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace - Mary Hoffman, Caroline Binch

I think this book is great for teaching the class that they can do anything they set their mind to. In the book, Grace is eager to be anything she sets her mind to even Peter Pan in the school play. I would use this in my classroom as a lesson about growing up. I would read the book and then have them draw a picture of what they want to be when they grow up. We might could even have a Career Day in which they bring in a family member that they admire. I think this book could be for 2nd to 4th grade. The Lexile Level is 680L.

Louise Loves Art

Louise Loves Art - Kelly Light

I think this is a good book because it is about a little girl fostering her imagination and creativity. The reading level, in my opinion, is probably 1st to 3rd grade. The Lexile Level of this book is AD108L. It has simple words and phrases with lots of pictures. I would use this in my classroom when we need a fun activity maybe at the beginning of the year. It could start the year off with a class promise that we all have a special abilities in our creativity and we will not hinder anyone in there imagination. I would read the book and then do a craft that allows them to draw whatever they want and place the creations on the Wall of Great Minds.

Bully Beans

Bully B.E.A.N.S. - Julia Cook

I think this book could be read for any grade level because of the lesson it teaches to the students. I think it would be most appropriate for 3 to 5 grade because these grades are more prone to bullying. The ATOS reading level is 3.6. They would be able to apply this to their lives and experiences a school. I would use this in my classroom by every time they heard a mean word, action or phrase they would eat a jelly bean. They would then create a poster about being nice and what not to say.

See the Yak Yak

See the Yak Yak - Charles Ghigna, Brian Lies

This book is good for teaching a lesson about Homonyms in a fun way. I would use this in my classroom for learning new words and for teaching that the same word can have different meanings. I think the reading level is preschool and kindergarten but I think it can be used in any grade level that needs examples for homonyms. The Lexile Level is 10L.
