Books that Teach PreK-3rd Grade Thinking Skills

Last week I had the opportunity to present classes about brain-based teaching at Learning@Lovejoy. I mentioned several books that I read my class in addition to the BrainSMART curriculum. Several teachers asked for a list of the books that I use. Here it is!

Courage by Bernard Waber (Courage)
The Worst Day of My Life Ever! By Julia Cook (Listening)
Personal Space Camp by Julia Cook (Understanding Space)
When Pigs Fly, by Valerie Coulman (Optimism)
Thinking for Reading Pre-K – 3rd, by Brainsmart (email nsu@brainsmart.org)
This list is growing and changing, and I will post changes as I make them.

I'm still looking for books to help teach these skills:
Understanding Time
Systematic Search
Systematic Planning
Making Comparisons

Even though we didn't get this far in the presentation, here is the book I use to determine thinking/processing styles and multiple intelligences: RTI Success. There are forms for both young and older students.

I hope to see you all in my presentation next year. Please feel free to leave me some feedback about the class and what you would like to learn more about.
