Engaging Resources for BUSY Teachers!

Great Book for Back to School

 My children’s new favorite book is Do Unto Otters: A Book About Manners by Laurie Keller. We just discovered it a few weeks ago. It is about a rabbit who gets new neighbors, the otters. It is great for teaching kids about how to treat others. The otters are very silly. This book gets a lot of laughs at our house.

I think this would be a great book to read during the first few days of school. It would work well for setting the expectations of how to treat others in class. I read it to my young children at home, but I plan on using it with my sixth-graders, too.

Writing Prompt Ideas for Do Unto Otters:

  • How do you like other people to treat you?
  • What things do you to be kind to others?
  • Have you ever had to meet a new group of people? How did you feel? Were you nervous or excited?
  • Write your own guide book for how to treat others.
