Join the Book Boys and check out the awesome resources we’ve come up with to accompany Miss Nelson Is Missing!
Max, Allister, and Elliott can’t hide their excitement about the activities this week. Watch this five-minute video with your students to discover what you can find on the blog.
• Max explores how teacher Denise Ortiz uses Miss Nelson Is Missing! at the beginning of the school year to help set community guidelines for student success—she wants students to respect their teachers and each other.
• Allister imagines what he would do if he were a student whose teacher went missing—and tells a story about the creative and practical problem-solving measures he would take to try to find them!
• Elliott shares three fun facts he loved from our exploration into author Harry Allard’s and illustrator James Marshall’s backstories—including the famous 3 a.m. call that started the misadventures of Miss Nelson’s class!
Then the Book Boys reenact and share the plot of Miss Nelson Is Missing!—but students will have to read the story themselves to discover the ending of this hilarious Book of the Week!
How do you plan to use Miss Nelson Is Missing! with your students? After watching this video, please share your ideas with us and other teachers on Facebook and Instagram by using the hashtag #ScholasticBookClubs. We may select your post to feature on our social pages!
The Book Boys work in different departments at Scholastic Book Clubs. They decided to form a group to share a wide range of books and introduce students to the world of reading. Each week, the Book Boys select a book to feature. They make stories come alive by creating fun, educational, and engaging videos for teachers and families to use in the classroom or at home. The Book Boys, like everyone at Scholastic Book Clubs, want all kids to love to read and be proud to declare: “I am a reader!”
