Ten Rules You Absolutely Must Not Break if You Want to Survive the School Bus by John Grandits
If you are looking for a good book to read to your returning students, this is the one you need. Ten Rules You Absolutely Must Not Break if You Want to Survive the School Bus pits an older siblings advice against a younger sibling's first day experience. The younger breaks every one of the older sage's rules on the first day! And there is a great post on writing activities for this book here and it also has a listening guide for students to check off. The author's website also has a foldable school bus to print out and make if you are looking for an activity to do with upper elementary students. It could also be adapted to use with younger students. John Grandits is a former Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice winner and this current selection is on the Young Reader's Choice list for elementary grades for the 2013-1014 school year. Also take time to view the book trailer. John Grandits visited Arrowhead several years ago and the students loved his concrete poems! The picture above came from here.
