I really like this book by Maribeth Boelts. It's a great read aloud and is easy to connect to drama.

My Brother's a Pain in the Backseat- I read this at the beginning of the year when we're discussing what we did during the summer.

Encyclopedia Brown books are fun. They're kind of like chapter books, but since each mystery stands alone, you can read them as you choose.

Do you want them for any time of the year or just the beginning? Here are some I read:

Beginning:
*Lily's Purple Plastic Purse (rules)
*Chrysanthemum (being kind)
*Wodney Wat (bullying)
*Spaghetti on a Hotdog Bun (differences)
*First Day Jitters

Rest of the Year:
*Diary of a Worm
*Jumanji/Zathura


I'm sure there are more for the rest of the year, but that's all I can remember right now. I love picture books.

I would recommend a study of Chris Van Allsburg.

Author Study

I often start with an author study of Patricia Pollaco books because we do Personal Narratives as our first Unit of Study in Writing Workshop. Many of her books fit this category and several have to do with her relationships with her teachers which is great to start the year.

I always read Chris Van Allsburg- perfect for third graders because they have a 'twist' that kids need to figure out. Check out The Wretched Stone or The Widow's Broom. My third graders always love them!

It is the perfect picture book read aloud for Halloween. I can't believe I forgot it off my list. I painted a broom white like the one in the story to use the day I read it aloud to the students.

What Do You Do With a Problem?
Old 07-23-2017, 07:21 PM

I was in Barnes and Noble today and saw the book What Do You Do With a Problem? by Kobi Yamada, and it was really cute! It was hardback, but I bought it since it was only $7.99 with purchase of another children's book (and I was buying Gooney Bird Greene).

Just another picture book idea for you. I'm going to read it the first week of school. It seems like a good book to talk about things that are hard for them (math, reading, etc...) and how it's better to face the problem rather than run from it. Could apply to any problem, of course.

I love her numerical series. Zero, one, two. It deals with bullying, tolerance, standing together,
