    I am needing to create sub lesson plans that will remain in the school office. I was hoping to find a really good book on which I could base 3+ days worth of lessons. It could be more than one book as well. I was hoping to go this route so I won't have to worry about them becoming too dated.

    Just looking for recommendations :)

    You could do an author study--use two or three stories by the same author. Eric Carle books would work. He has some good math oriented stories and my personal favorite "Very Hungry Caterpillar".

    If you want to try and stretch with one story try Chrysanthemum - it is a great story for teaching kids about bullying, name calling. It also has great vocabulary to teach the kids. I use it for math too. We compare the length of her name to our own. Make a graph, stack cubes and compare.

    If You Give a Mouse a cookie is a great book for sequencing too. (There are other books similar that you could use too-If you give a moose a muffin, if you take a mouse to school, etc.

    Hope these ideas help! :)
