This is a perfect book for every elementary classroom. Maxwell teaches students that there is “a bit of magic” in all of us. Teachers can use this book to have students take a closer look at their classmates and find the good…a fun way to build classroom community.  Additional ways to use this book in the classroom:       Reading           -predicting           -reading dialogue with expression (various “said” words)           -reader’s theater           -using pictures to infer characters’ feelings           -“reading” the illustration to understand main character’s personality  and character traits           -vocabulary (feelings)           -simple theme (Perfect way to introduce young readers to the concept of themes in a book.)           -setting changes and how they affect character changes      Writing           -use thought bubbles to model how to write in internal thinking           -write Maxwell’s next adventure           -chart “said” words           -for beginning writers – how illustrations can show movement This book has it all!  It is a great book to use with PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports) and a true mentor text for reading and writing. My second grade class has enjoyed it every time we have read it and it is a book they read in groups during any free minute in the day. 5 BIG stars!!!
