Theme: Be Yourself

This is the final week of our theme link party.
I hope you have some new titles to use in your classroom.

This week's theme: Be Yourself
This theme was a favorite of my class!

Emily's Art by Peter Catalanotto
No I didn't just pick this because it has my name in the title!

The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch
Who says you always need a man to rescue you?

Bob by Tracey Campbell Pearson
Stand Straight Ella Kate
My students loved this book!  There was a fury of kids who agreed who they would pass it to next because they all so interested in this true story about a woman from Missouri.

The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf
Every kid knows Ferdinand but they haven't looked at it through the lens of theme.

Amazing Grace by Mary Hoffman
Many of my 5th graders read this book in 4th grade to talk about character traits.  It is great to reread it thinking about theme.

Gregory the Terrible Eater
I loved this book was a kid.  It is also one that connects to the health curriculum.

The Name Jar by Yangsook Choi
My class read this book during our launching unit, so it was great to pull it out again for theme.

Noah Webster and His Words by Jeri Chase Ferris
Oliver Button Is a Sissy by Tomie dePaola
Ruby's Wish by Shirin Yim Bridges
The Sign Painter by Allen Say
Stellaluna by Janell Cannon
Stephanie's Ponytail by Robert Munsch
A Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon
Too Shy for Show and Tell by Beth Bracken
Thanks for joining our weekly post about theme!

What books do you read to teach the theme be yourself?
