Light a Fire With a Good Back to School Book and Giveaway!


Some teachers have already started school and for the rest of us, it's right around the corner. It's important to start thinking about a game plan for your students this year. But there's SOOOO much to think about! Well, help is on the way!

Several of us bloggers have come together to give you some awesome ideas for Back to School Books! These books can be used to set up your classroom community, begin a good lesson, or just as a fun read-aloud.

The book I'd like to share with you is...
  

It's a great book for...
 
Building Community!
As teachers we need to provide opportunities for students to help and support each other in a safe learning environment. This community building needs to take place all year long, but especially needs to be the focus at the beginning of the year. It will set the tone and culture for your classroom. It will have to be deliberate. Community building will have to be the focus with every lesson until it is natural for your students to help, encourage, and support each other on their own.
One of my favorite ways to uplift each other is to "fill our buckets"!
 Have You Filled a Bucket Today is PERFECT for pointing out the obvious effects of complimenting or being mean to someone. Positive behavior like complimenting, encouraging, supporting, or helping someone fills buckets, while bullying, being mean, or ignoring others dips into buckets. I want my students to be BUCKET FILLERS! I create a bulletin board with each students' name on a bucket and they write positive sticky notes as someone is demonstrating kindness or appreciation and place them on each others' buckets. It's very exciting for my students to give or receive a sticky note!
 
This activity is from my Back to School Reading & Writing Pack. It's filled with activities and ideas using reading and writing to make your classroom a positive learning environment. I've selected popular books that you may own or be in your school library. Even if you can't find one, I've included a SafeShare link for every book, so you can show the video of the read aloud for students to watch.

Spending the initial time up front forming these relationships will prevent future problems and if a problem does arise, it will be handled in a respectful way because of the community you've built.
These reading and writing activities are sure to make the first month back fun and give you several opportunities to build community.

    I never thought that I could be this wealthy after all I've been through trying to meet ends and take care of my family, I used to play lottery but has never be lucky to win until I saw some comments online how he had helped a lot of people win, after first I didn't believe him but still I gave it a try, I wrote him a message on email after few hours he replied back so I told him what I want he assured me success. he also told me what I should do and I did all he requested from me, after some hours he gave me the lucky numbers and showed me where to play so i did as instructed to my biggest surprise I won 27 million pounds (Euromillions). Now I'm rich and happy all thanks to Dr Benjamin for the help, I'm nothing without you. if you need his help to win you can reach him via his email drbenjaminlottospell711@gmail.com and his whatsapp +13344539570

  10. One evening, i was reading a blog of how so many people got this blank card online when i was trying to search for a new job, but it didn't seem clear to me so i ignored. Three days later, i was so surprised to see a comment by my cousin on how he got the blank card worth Thousand Dollars and without hesitation i gave him a call to come over to the house to tell me more about the card and he told me that its a miracle that i needed to per-take. He gave me the email address ( dwchzone@gmail.com ) of the hackers and i contact them for the card and they responded and told me all the procedures and terms of the card which was also what my cousin told me, i agreed and completed their requirement to get the card. Four days later, i heard knock on my door an behold was the courier agent who brought the parcel to my house and today i am rich and i thank God to this hackers and to my cousin brother who lead me to them.

  13. i am super excited this very moment indeed Dr Dominion is truly a good man, i doubted him from the beginning but right now i can trust him with my all because he has put a beautiful smile on my face and change my life from struggle to millionaire, what would i have done without him, just few months ago i was struggling wondering what would my life turn into, now i am here sharing a wonderful testimony of my life, after i explained my whole situation to him he took me as his own daughter and removed my family from shame, he prepared a lottery winning spell for me with true sincerity and gave me a winning number to play and that was how i won that jackpot, Dr Dominion took away my shame, my pain and my worries, what a humble man with a heart of gold, thank you so much i am very grateful for what you have done for me, should you have any interest in giving it a try or going through any difficulties i think he is the right man to talk to and i believe he can help you as well.
