The Name Jar by Yangsook Choi When Unhei moves from Korea to the United States, she is a little embarrassed by her name so she tells her new classmates that she doesn’t have one. They all help to choose a new one for her by putting choices into a jar but in the end, Unhei decides that her Korean name is just perfect. This is the perfect book for anyone with an “ethic first or middle name” that they are a little embarrassed about. [picture book, ages 5-9]
Great read aloud story -- fits well with Social Issues unit of reading.

The Name Jar is a fantastic book to read at the beginning of the school year to promote diversity and friendship in your classroom. The story is a very touching tale of a girl who is starting at a new school and is from another country. The kids can't pronounce her name so she considers taking an American name until she learns that she is special just the way she is.

Teaching My Friends! - Heart Map for Writing: It's on writing about the things you love. You draw a big heart and then fill it with all those things. The teacher does one to model, and then your friends create their own. It is writing topic inspiration for your friends.
heart map! kids make a heart of things they love and refer to it during writing time!! a must for the daily 5.... could use on Valentines.
Doing this for Valentines Day! heart map- I used Nancie Atwell's concept of a heart map in the past, but I like this variation for younger students.
heart map! An example of the heart map activity that was mentioned to help students with writing topics.
Mini project to do in the beginning of the year as a topic inspiration for students. They fill in the heart with words and icons with what they "love" and later would use as an inspiration for writing topics. Heart map!

Backless Bird House for the WIndow.....this would be so cool for a kid to watch the stages!!! :)
Kitchen Window, Birdhouse
Backless bird house with suction cups for the window= you get to see the baby birds hatch! What a neat idea! #craft ideas
Window bird nest -- Reading the reviews from the website itself, a lot of the customers seem really anxious about the suction cups providing the only means of support for the bird house. What if eggs were inside and it fell? I love this idea, but I'd like to find a way to make it more secure in it's place. I also wonder if it would make the bird's anxious to see us through the glass...?
Backless bird house with suction cups for the window= you get to see the baby birds hatch! Or a bird feeder at a kitchen window while washing dishes.
Bird's Eye View Birdhouse. Science up close! My cousin has something similar as a birdfeeder. It is fascinating to watch the birds.

Silly Back-to-School Picture Books about Teachers
Responsibility Lesson, Classroom Book, Writing Lesson, Class Book, Teacher, Writing Idea
Read/writing lesson-after reading book, students write about their teacher's secret life. Sounds good for teaching point of view in writing.
This would be such a cute writing prompt to go along with this read aloud. What do you think your teacher does when they leave school at the end of the day?
This is the CUTEST writing assignment EVER!!! Perfect for classroom book to share for open house
Writing Assignment- Start by reading the book My Teacher's Secret Life by Stephen Krensky. Students then brainstorm about what their teacher's "secret life" might be, and create a circle map to include any ideas they have. They then create a flow map to create their story, drafting, peer conferencing, revising, editing, and illustrating. Wonderfully imaginative stories can then be put into a class book and saved by the teacher.
Writing assignment where students write ideas of the teacher's secret life.

This looks like a great book to start the year off! Hilarious! What third grader doesn't use too much glue?

Great book for the first day of school; Realistic fiction I want this book for a fun read aloud for the first or second day of school. Its a quirky story of a kid who is going to school for his first day and gets in some sticky situations.
Matty ignores his art teacher's warning against using "too much glue" and learns when he takes a flying leap onto his project that he probably should have listened....
While this cute kids book has a great message about moderation, we can never get enough reminders about God's Word. #HoneyWordDevo does just that using field-tested memorization techniques. Get your copy of the #HoneyWordDevo today: http://honeyword.org/devotional-book
The cover of TOO MUCH GLUE will pull your #kids in, then the uproarious story will keep them glued to their seats as you read aloud the tale of Matty and his gluey, gooey mess. Too Much Glue by Jason Lefebvre with art by Zac Retz from @Flashlight Press (fFlashlight Press, $16.95, Ages 4-8). @Independent Publishers Group #kidlit #kidsbookreviews #arts&crafts #humor
Although Matty’s art teacher has warned him that too much glue never dries, Matty loves glue. After all, he and his dad make oodles of glue projects at home. One day during art class, Matty finds the fullest bottles of glue, and the fun begins.
