Books for Core 8 Set: DON'T THAT GO DO

Books are always a fun way to explore core language.

But REMEMBER - just enjoy reading the book, pointing at and talking about the text, THEN use light or high tech communication sets to talk about the books, pointing out the core words.  This should not be a test, but a fun social interaction!!

Tarheel Reader:  Existing Books

Search for the core words to find books that use the target words that will be engaging to your students!  For example, my middle school Communication Circle enjoyed the book, 'Should I Stay or Should I Go' by the Suite Kids.  Link to the book below:
Should I Stay Book

The Circle used their devices to comment on the pages, such as:

I didn't find a book that I loved for DON'T, so I wrote a few, with special consideration of older students, who might want their books to include humor or edginess.  These books were co-written with a student, Ev, who shared ideas via her device, and also used Yes and No to choose her favorite topics to add (or remove!)

Don't Do That.  This book highlights things that annoy Ev (landscaper making loud noises, dog chasing her cat, cat eating her artwork), and ends up telling what she loves, saying DO THAT!  MORE, MORE, MORE!!
This would be a terrific book to download as a powerpoint, then change the pictures and text.  You could use:
- PowerPoint on your computer
Keynote, Explain Everything, or Pictello on your iPad

Don't Do That book

Don't Go There.  This book is a play on words, with Don't Go There meaning:
a) not to go to specific places that might be dangerous (busy street)
b) places that are personal or private (backpack, room),
c) also the more subtle, teenager meaning of 'Don't talk about that' (boyfriends, homework), 
d) and finally the meaning of don't go (pee!) there!!
