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 Little Prince

The Little Prince & Letter to a Hostage - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Antoine De Saint-Exupéry gave us a wonderful and peculiar story. The plot follows an aviator, who has crashed in the dessert! After further research, I learned that the author modeled this on his own experience. Because this text is a fable, I think it would be great to compare it to other classic fables. The teacher could then challenge students to write their own fables! I think this text could also be used while studying autobiographies. I recommend watching the Netflix movie!
