Miss Mingo and the First Day of School is about the first day of school in Miss Mingo’s Classroom. She has the students share what makes them different from the other students.
Idea of how it can be used in a classroom:
Miss Mingo and the First Day of School is a great resource for teachers to teach different types of animals and what makes them different from each other and to support the differences in everybody. The teacher could have the class sit in a circle and have the students name one thing they think separates themselves from the rest of the class.
Reading Level & Leveling System:
3.6; Third Grade Sixth Month
I would rate this book a 3 because it does let children know its okay to have differences from other students but if a student was really different it might not be a great idea because sometimes other students might not be so nice and understanding that its okay to be different.
