One of my biggest passions is reading. I love to dive into the written word and become immersed into the world the writer has created.

What Teachers Can't Do

What Teachers Can't Do - Douglas Wood, Doug Cushman

This is a very interesting book and would be a great read on the first day of school. Reading this book with the students can break the ice and show them that even teachers can't do everything. For instance did you know that teacher's can't buy their own apples? Or slide down the tubes on the playground?  I did not know either! After the book has been read, I would have the students write down or draw something they do not think they can do well and put the response in a box. I would then draw the responses out of the box and share them with the class. There would be no embarrassment or shame as no one's name is written on the paper and it helps other students know they are not alone in things they can not do.
