School Days According to Humphrey, by Betty Birney, is the perfect choice for a back-to-school read aloud. The main character (Humphrey, the hamster) struggles with adjusting to new classmates at the beginning of the school year. The new classmates represent a wide variety of personalities, just like your average present day classroom.
The PowerPoint slides in this product introduce each chapter of this inviting book, as well as Humphrey's Rules for School. Also included is a reflection booklet for students to respond to each chapter in the book.
Betty Birney, the author, has given permission to use photos from her teacher-friendly website (www.bettybirney.com) in the PowerPoint.
The reflection booklet supports CCSS for ELA. Additionally, the concepts of cooperation and responsibility presented in this book support PBIS strategies.
