One of my all-time favorite back to school books is Miss Nelson is Missing.
No matter what grade I taught, my kiddos LOVED it.
The gist of the story is that Miss Nelson's students are so naughty, that she decides to take a few days off. Her substitute is the very mean Miss Viola Swamp. The result is that the children really miss their teacher & shape up. The surprise ending will make you smile.
With that in mind, I designed a jumbo math & literacy packet. Today's featured FREEBIES come from that packet.
use it as a discussion starter: "What's the title of our story? Who's the author, illustrator etc."
The other poster has a thought provoking quotation on it. Ask students what they think it means. How does that quote relate to the Miss Nelson is Missing story?
