The Night I Followed the Dog- Great book to teach Main Idea & Supporting Details, as well as Sequencing Events! (link includes lesson plan). CUTE, CUTE BOOK!!!

Think Aloud: Predicting, inferring

How to Babysit a Grandpa by Jean Reagan: The text "looks" like a narrative story, but it has the language that's the hallmark of "how-to" writing combined with transitions to keep the story moving along. Embedded within the text are obvious "how-to" pieces (tips and lists) such as "Snacks for a Grandpa," "How to Entertain a Grandpa," and "How to Wake Up a Grandpa." (Would support your work with the Common Core Standards for writing.)

Book for the first day of school.

Lacey Walker, Nonstop Talker -- A book about the importance of listening. A definite read during the first week of school :)

The Clever School Teacher: Book lists complied by reading strategies, writing traits, and common core!!!

Amazing website... it gives specific books for whatever strategy you are teaching!
