Miss Taylor's Book Picks

I am a student teacher at the University of Montevallo and graduate in May of 2019. I would like to use this blog to keep track of books that I hope to use in my future classroom.

The Loudest Roar

The Dinosaur Who Lost His Roar (Usborne First Reading: Level 3) - Russell Punter

Sid has the loudest roar of all the dinosaurs. He likes to sneak up on his friends and scare them because their reactions make him laugh. One day, Sid loses his roar and can not scare his friends like he normally does. Instead of him laughing, his friends begin to laugh at him because of his squeak of a roar. Sid learns that he does not like being laughed at, so his friends must not like it either. Sid goes on a journey to rebuild his relationships with his friends, but runs into trouble doing so. I would use this book to teach character education and have the students come up with alternate ways for Sid to have fun with his friends without scaring them. I believe that students would love to act out the book. I believe acting out the story would help the students understand that just because they find something funny does not mean their friends also find it amusing. The Accelerated reading level is 1.9.
