This is one of my favorite books ever! I was immediately drawn to it by the beautiful cover, but fell in love with the story. The main character, Lucy, takes you on a wonderful journey of finding courage to love what makes her unique. I can totally relate to being teased for the puffy curly hair!

๐Ÿ’œ Reading Skill Ideas to teach with this book- inferencing, connections, and predictions

๐Ÿ’™ SEL- treating others the way you want to be treated, loving yourself, courage, kindness

๐Ÿ’š Writing Extension- Write an apology note from Ralph about what he did wrong, create a new food combination and make an advertisement for it

If you don't have this book you should get it! It is a perfect classroom community building read aloud. https://amzn.to/2ZCpjhB (affiliate link)

Who comes to mind when you read this? Some students we realize NEED us and depend on us everyday, but more students do that do not make it obvious everyday. Everyone of your students needs you everyday. They depend on on your smiling face, consistent care, loving spirit, and inspiration. Even on the hardest days that push you to your limits, remember they need you so much more than they are showing you! #littlemindslittlehearts #classroomfamily #teachersfollowteachers #iteachsecond #secondgrade #firstgrade #iteachtoo #teachersofinstagram
