Rates and reviews on some of my favorite children books. As well as, how I would use them in my classroom. :)

Naughty Little Monkeys - Jim Aylesworth, Henry Cole

Naughty Little Monkeys is a great way to incorporate behavior and the ABCs in one lesson for your lower grade levels. This is definitely a book I would use in kindergarten and 1st grade. I would read it to them during the first day of school and have them point out what is wrong with the behavior from the monkeys. I would then pass out a work sheet and ask them to underline the beginning letter (ABCs) of each wrong behavior. That way I could assess each student and see what letters, if any, that they know. This would be a good transition book to teach the classroom/school rules.
