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.

The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

The Giving Tree is a story about a tree that loved a boy who would come to her everyday and eat her apples and swing from her branches. As the boy grew up, he wanted more from the tree and the tree kept giving. One activity to go with this book is that students could create their own giving tree and write about a time that someone helped them by giving and how it made them feel. This book is a level 530L on the lexile leveling sytem.
