The Rainbow Fish started out not sharing what he had to the other fish and being greedy and when he was being ignored for his beauty he wondered why he didn’t have any friends but this all changed when the rainbow fish took the octopus’s advice and shared his scale with the little blue fish and he started to become happy, so the more he gave to the other fish. The other fish became his friends because he learned how to share.
Idea of how it can be used in a classroom:
The Rainbow Fish could be used in the classroom to show students that being selfish and not sharing with others can be hurtful too. The teacher could have the students do a writing activity of when they might have not wanted to share something that meant so much to them or write about when they wanted something from a friend and that friend didn’t want to share with them.
Reading Level & Leveling System:
3.3; Third Grade Third Month
I would rate this book 3 because it does have good morals and teaches students to share what they have with others but not everyone can give away things like that depending on their home life.
