Miss Nelson is Missing (By: Harry Allard)

AR Book Level: 2.7

Scholastic Book Level: 2.5

Summary: Miss Nelson has an unruly classroom and something must be done. Miss Nelson takes some time off and the children have a substitute, Miss Viola Swamp. Soon the children are looking for Miss Nelson, as they can’t wait to have her back.

Review: This is a fun book about how children should learn to behave and grass isn’t always greener on the other side. I have one and only one complaint. In the book the children call Miss Swamp a witch. I simply do not like that, so when we read it, I change the word witch to meany.



I found two great activity guides/literature units for Miss Nelson is Missing!! Rather than talk all about them, I am just going to link them and let you see them for yourself! One is found here and the other here.
