Back-to-School Rules

Back to School Rules

Percy Isaac Gifford is ready for a new school year.  And he has lots of advice for kids who are or aren't as excited as he is.  Ten rules, things NOT to do, to make the school year stress free.  Told in rhyming stanzas, BACK TO SCHOOL RULES  is delightfully silly and, in my opinion, must be read aloud!

I cannot wait to share this fun book with my students on the first day of school this year and for many years to come.  I am considering turning it into a class book on the last day of school for next year's students, too.  If every child wrote a new stanza specific to our 5th grade class, they would collectively write a great book for the new class!

Love it!
