Well, today I'm linking up with the Teaching Trio for their monthly Favorite Things linky.
1. Our Tree Named Steve:I just discovered this beautiful picture book this year. It is a story of tree and the tree's family (human family). It talks about love, friendship, lose, and so much more. I can honestly say, while reading this story my class we were all in tears! It is such a beautiful story and I now you and your students will love reading it.
2. The Giving Tree:
This is a classic! The story of a boy who loved a tree and a tree who loved a boy. It talks about the relationship between giving and taking and how taking to much can hurt the ones you love. It's the story of what true love looks like (being willing to do anything for the person/thing that you love). We read this every year, multiple times, and I've never had a student who didn't enjoy the story.
3. Bridge to Terabithia:
One of my favorite childhood chapter books. I remember my 5th grade teacher reading this book to our class and me falling in love with it. This is another story that talks about friendship, love, lose, and so much more! You can this book for literature circles, guided reading, a read aloud, or just introduce it and see which students will pick it up and start to read!
There you go, three of my favorite read alouds! I hope you enjoyed this post and I can't wait to blog again soon!
