I am a future elementary school teacher who loves to read and try new books both inside and outside of the classroom. This blog is dedicated to cataloging and keeping up with all the books I would like to use in my future classroom as well as ways I can use them in my classroom!
Things are NOT going Alexander's way today. It was bad as soon as he woke up and things just kept getting worse. It was just a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. This is a wonderful book to show students that we ALL have some days where things just do not go right for us- and that is okay! Each day is a new day and everyday won't be a horrible, terrible, no good, very bad day. An activity I would have students complete after reading this book is doing a journal entry on a day that was just not good for them and how they overcame it or what they learned from it. I would not have students share these unless they wanted to since they could contain sensitive information. This would also be a great book to have around if students are having a rough day for them to read, that way they felt like they someone could relate to how they were feeling that day.
