Jodi's Classroom Favorites

A collection of my favorite picture, short story, and chapter books that I hope to house in my classroom library!

The Lorax

The Lorax - Dr. Seuss

He speaks for the trees! I love this vibrant work by Dr. Seuss. I think most of the charm of this book comes from the usage of made-up words. Seuss's made up characters make children giggle and use their imagination! I could use this book for all kinds of activities! I would love to read this on Earth Day. I think it would be great for students to research pollution and its effects on the environment after reading this text. Another great activity for young readers to try is a cause and effect study like the one I found here:
