    Book needed: Individuals coming together; community

    Hello,

    I want to do a lesson on the idea of each student being an individual, but when we come together we form a stronger (bigger) individual, a class community

    Are there any age appropriate (first grade) books on this general topic I can get to read to the class?



    Thank you

    First I want to say I like the sentiment you are going for. The idea that the class is a community that works together.

    I don't know of a book, but I'd be careful with the idea that a class is a family. It is not. It can be a community, but it is not a family. You might ruffle some feathers by using the family terminology. Good idea, but get the family word out of your discussion. It doesn't belong. Community also applies better to the overarching idea that extends into the entire school and the town, etc. Family does not.

    The Crayon Box That Talked has that general theme that working together makes something better than an individual.

    Exactly the book I was going to recommend. I used this when I taught first.
