Messing Around on the Monkey Bars, by Betsy Franco. Out on the playground, kids are skipping rope and making trades. In the library, they’re whispering, fidgeting, and giggling. In the classroom, they’re learning their lessons....or spinning tales about why they haven’t turned in their homework. Throughout this collection of nineteen poems, words, pictures, and voices erupt in an irresistible invitation to join an exhilarating ride around school. HC 9780763631741 Ages 8-11 #commoncore
My children used this at their private school. It was the best thing I have ever seen for teaching responsibility, respect, & self-management. I can't wait to use it in my own classroom. For grades K-6.
Louder, Lili - Great book for teaching quieter children the importance of using their voice. A very effective tool to help shy students speak up. It also has a classic bossy friend. Great for Perspective-Taking and noticing how what we say, and what we do can change how people feel
