Fayth Watkins' Favorite Classroom Books!

My name is Fayth Watkins and I am studying Elementary Education at The University of Montevallo. I am saving some of my favorite books that I can one day use in my classroom and ideas of activities to go along with each book.

Thank You Mr. Falker

Thank You, Mr. Falker - Patricia Polacco

Thank You Mr. Falker is book based on a true story of the authors struggles with dyslexia and how a great teacher believed in her and helped her learn how to read. An activity that teachers can use in the classroom is to use it as a lesson to discuss bullying and how not everyone learns the same and is different. Students could also write about a time a teacher believed in them or helped them. Students who have dyslexia can also connect to this book and know they are not alone. This book is a level 24 on the DRA leveling system.
