I was touched on how eloquently Mr. Done wrote on a very heartbreaking event that occurred with one of his students, I really felt a connection with the author more than ever. Having read Mr. A twenty-year veteran of the classroom, elementary school teacher Phillip Done takes readers through a lively and hilarious year in the classroom.
Starting with the relative calm before the storm of buying school supplies and posting class lists, he shares the distinct personalities of grades K-4, what he learned from two professional trick or treating 8-year-old boys, the art of learning cursive and letter-writing, how kindergartners try to trap leprechauns, and what every child should experience before he or she grows up. These charming, sweet, and funny tales of Mr.
Close Encounters of the Third-Grade Kind: Thoughts on Teacherhood by Phillip Done
We all have that one special, favorite grade school teacher whom we fondly remember throughout our adult lives — and every teacher also has students whom they will never forget. This is the perfect book for teachers, parents, and anyone else who is looking for a lighthearted, nostalgic read.
Read about Done's pistol assessments to determine which children to watch out for, how "pillow student" Rebecca was able to catch up with her classmates, how Done handles the tooth fairy and Halloween, and the different reading strategies that children have developed. Then enjoy the deep and uncomplicated laughs that burst out! Publisher: Center Street September 4, , pages. Courtesy of the publisher. Done's writing is what I assume his teaching style to be like - - lighthearted, humorous and entertaining.
I was drawn into his book from the first page, partly out of curiosity for the teaching profession and partly due to his "getting to know you" style. I can imagine that reading Mr.
Done's book is akin to sitting down with him over dinner and letting him talk about all his third grade adventures. He begins with right before school begins, with the summer ending, and each section is a different month of the school year. Everything from Back to School Night, where the seasoned teachers know to hide from the excitable students and their talkative parents, to never letting your profession slip while buying school supplies to the dreaded Picture Day. I found myself chuckling with reminders of my own school days - - the plastic combs given out on Picture Day, the show and tell or what is now called "Sharing" , learning cursive writing, adventurous spelling and those crushes on classmates.
If you get nothing else out of this book, the memories are worth reading it alone. I dare you to read this book and not remember your own third grade teacher, or the best friend you had, a favorite outfit from that school year or the little boy or girl you had a crazy crush on.
