Monthly Read-a-Louds

Book of the Month

For the month of October, I am reading three separate books by age group with a focus on feelings. For TK and K I will be reading Big Feelings by Alexandra Penfold and Suzanne Kaufman. This talks to the students about feelings that they experience and we talk about how they handle those as they come up. It is a great story about how they interact with one another as well. For 1st and 2nd grade I will be reading the Color Monsterby Anna Lewiswhich also talks about their feelings as well. We talk about how the students can identify what they are feeling and address that. With our 3rd -5th grade students the message will be a little different as we will be reading Ish by Peter H Reynolds. There is a component of how the main character is feeling, but also talks about a growth mindset and looking at things a little bit differently. If you are interested to hear these stories and discuss with your families, I would encourage you to do so.
