Book of the Week!

This week's book is another one of my favorites! I remember reading this book when I was in elementary school. This is always a popular book with my students.

This week's book is:
Book: Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
Author: Judith Viorst
Goals/ Targets: Categories. One popular category activity I have done with my students is categorizing events as "good" or "bad" day events. I give the students activities written on index cards and they take turns coming up to the board to categorize these activities. Then, the students create their own list! You can also use this activity to discuss how something can be considered a bad day for one person, but not the next!
