Hey friends! I am so excited about this month’s Books Teachers Love post! Today’s book is perfect for Valentine’s Day, and it is just so fun! If you are just joining us make sure to go read up on all of our past posts, resources, and freebies!
The book I chose for this month is, Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch. It is adorable! I got mine cheap and fast from amazon here!
This book is perfect to talk all about kindness, why it is important and how to show it. I plan on reading this too my students and doing a few activities from my book companion pack.
Here are a few things I will be doing with my students:
Discussing character traits & Comparing and Contrasting
Comprehension Check & Writing prompt
Kindness hearts: I will be having my students pick one friend to write a kindness heart to. I will have them pick names I think so that EVERYONE gets a heart. Then I will place these in a central location for the month so that my friends can spread kindness all month long!
I will also have my students complete and exit ticket on ways to spread kindness. You can grab these exit tickets for FREE here!
If you are interested in grabbing the entire resource, you can find it here!
Also, there is an adorable reading of the book by Hector Elizondo. I will show it to my kids sometime during our lessons!
I truly hope you will add this book to your February collection! You can try to win it here!! ((plus 3 other fantastic books!)) Good luck!!
Make sure you check out the other ideas this month!
