Clark the Shark by Bruce Hale

Publisher: Harper Collins

Publication Date: June 25, 2013

Recommended Grades: 3-5

Clark is a shark with zing, bang, and BOOM.  Clark loves life, but when his enthusiasm is too much for his friends, his teacher helps him figure out a way to tone it down.   

Lesson Idea:

Building Community: Read aloud Clark the Shark and discuss how his enthusiasm affected others.  Was Clark able to to tone it down?  Brainstorm with students ways that they may affect others in the classroom.  What are some strategies they could use to “tone it down”?

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the publisher for review.

    Congratulations on having the book sent to you by the publisher for review! It means that your blog and opinions are getting the attention of the publishers! You are very good in selecting books for school, I always read your reviews, even if I’m looking for books with a different aim, which is to teach foreign languages to children.
