Elizabeti’s School

Title: Elizabeti’s School

Bibliographic information: Stuve-Bodeen, S. (2002). Elizabeti’s School. New York: Lee & Low Books

Brief annotation: Elizabeti is starting school and she is so excited. She really enjoys her first day but she misses her family. Would she be better off at home with them?

Genre: Realistic Fiction

Grade: 1st – 3rd

Readers who will like this: This book would be good for students who may be afraid  to go to school and leave their families. This would be a good book for the first day of school.

Rating: 4 – I really enjoyed this story. It showed what the first day of school is like in another culture, which isn’t much different than here. Readers can make connections between what their first day was like and how Elizabeti’s was similar or different.

Questions: How did you feel on your first day of school? What was your favorite thing from that day?

Learning strategy: I chose the Writer’s Chair  for this book because students can write the story of their first day of school and then have the opportunity to read it to the class.
