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”?
