The Best Story - one of the first books read each year in Writer's Workshop. It's great for teaching where writer's get their ideas. In the end, the main character learns that the best story comes from your heart. After reading it, give each student a paper heart and they fill it with words/pictures of the things/people they love. I'm interested in looking at this book. beginning of the year books, end of the school year books, paper hearts, writer workshop, creative writing, end of school year stories, writers workshop ideas, mentor texts, first grade

Teaching Expectations--noise level
Funny story. Suggested for use on PT for teaching children 'turn and talk' partner sharing.
Rocket Writes a Story by Tad Hills: MUST HAVE for writing workshop at the beginning of the year... great story (not so much for "craft," but for helping students gain a writing identity.) Rocket learns about the reading-writing connection, collecting words, choosing important topics to write about, and more. young children, reading levels, baby owls, writing process, picture books, writer, rocket write, teaching writing, mentor texts

What if Everybody Did That? by Ellen Javernick This one should come standard with every primary classroom. The book goes through a day with a little one who does things without thinking, like feeding zoo animals despite the warning signs not to. He's got that same feeling that lots of kids do - that their actions won't make that big of a difference. But the community helpers in this book get him to think of what would happen if everybody did that. introduce teacher, authors purpose, zoo animals, picture books, introduc rule, first day books, kid, second grade, back to school
Great way in introduce rules on the first day!
A lesson for those bossy kiddos . . . .

Listening & following directions.....RJ has had a rough day...he wakes up with gum stuck in his hair, misses recess because he's late to school, earns a zero on his math homework, kicks the ball into his own team's soccer goal, and messes up Mom's kitchen with his overflowing pancake batter!
