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

Be sweet to your things

The Day the Crayons Quit - Drew Daywalt, Oliver Jeffers

This is a FANTASTIC book to read to any grade to show them the importance of taking care of your things. I would make an anchor chart and have the students tell me the difference between being respectful and taking care of your belongings vs. overworking and not caring for their things. They need to know how important it is to take care of and respect all objects.
