Macey Thompson's Tales

I have recently become obsessed with collecting books for my future elementary classroom. I look forward to creating an online library of some of my favorites and planning how I will use each book in my classroom.

The Rainbow Fish

The Rainbow Fish - Marcus Pfister, J. Alison James

This story is about a fish who has many more sparkly scales than the other fish. Rainbow Fish does not want to share his shimmering scales, and the other fish do not want to play with him since he is selfish. Ultimately, Rainbow Fish discovers that it feels good to share his jewels and gains many friends in the process. With this story, I would have students write about a time that he/she shared something precious to them and how sharing made him/her feel. I think this activity would be a great way to show off students' creativity. I could do this by posting the students' work in the hallway for other students and staff to view. The Rainbow Fish has an AR level of 3.3.
