Miss Rodgers' Riveting Reads

A collection of Children's books that I have loved for a long time or just recently had the opportunity to love.

A student’s worse nightmare!

Miss Nelson Is Missing! - Harry Allard, James Marshall

Another classic book with a hidden lesson for the classroom. Miss Nelson is Missing is about the ultimate reverse psychology on students in the classroom that don’t quite want to do as they are told. Of course it is much exaggerated but very hilarious to watch the student’s faces react to all that the “substitute” teacher is doing. I always thought it would be fun to dress up as Miss Viola Swamp for a classroom one day, but only as a joke of course. This book is a great lesson in integrity and respect in the classroom. I would love to use this book in a compre and contrast lesson and allow the students to work in groups comparing Miss Nelson to Miss Viola Swamp from how they look and talk to how they act.
