Book Share Wednesday: The Hundred Dresses

Today is the very first Book Share Wednesday link up!! I'm so excited to have a place for you to come together and share the great books you use in your classroom in any way.  Today I'm sharing about the book I like to use as my first read aloud.  Yesterday was my first day with my new class of students.  It was a great day and I'm so excited for this group.  Based on first impresssions, we have a great dynamic and we're going to have a lot of fun.  I started reading aloud to them the book The Hundred Dresses.  It's one of my favorites that really illustrates the need to be kind and aware of others.  It's a great medium through which to have some conversations about how your class should build a community that is caring and supportive of all class members.  I highly recommend reading this one if you haven't.  I've used this book in all three levels that I've taught, first grade, third grade and fifth grade.  Every class has been attentive and had good conversation about the story and relating it to us.  It's also a bit of a classic, so it's not expensive at all.

Now it's your turn!  Once a month on the third Wednesday, I open up my Book Share post to all of you to link up to.  If you have a blog, feel free to link up your post about a book below.  It can be a novel, picture book, professional development book, etc.  If you'd rather, you're also always welcome to respond to my post or share your book in the comments section below.  Happy reading!!

The link will be open for one week.
