Teachers, teachers, teachers

Everyone has been super excited about this new school year. On our wall graph, kids got to decide whether or not they were ready to go back to school. And, guess what? Most kids said yes! If you are so happy with your teacher this year, you will definitely enjoy one of these books all about teachers! Or, look around the Library to find some more!

Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea
*This book was also nominated for a Bluestem Award for 2013!*

First Day Jitters by Julie Danneberg
Just like many other people, Sarah does not want to get up and get ready for school on the first day. She is nervous about starting at her new school!

Frindle by Andrew Clements

The Magical Ms. Plum by Bonny Becker
All teachers have a little bit of magic in them.

Miss Malarkey Doesn't Live in Room 10 by Judy Finchler

Our Librarian Won't Tell Us Anything! by Toni Buzzeo
I know that this about librarians, but it is very specifically about a librarian who works in a school. Will the students take the time to figure things out on their own?

The School Master by Wil Mara
A non-fiction title that reviews the evolution of schools. If you like reading about Colonial America, you will enjoy this title.

Totally Wonderful Miss Plumberry by Michael Rosen
