Goodnight Moon is about a little bunny who likes to say goodnight to everything in his room. This book is a great introduction to poetry into a classroom. There are several other nursery rhymes that would also go with this book but this one is my favorite. This book puts a fun twist on bedtime.
I would introduce this book by allowing the students to tell me a few things they do to get ready for bed. Then the students will be asked to take a picture walk through out the book and tell me what all they see. We will read the story as a class. We will discuss all the things the bunny said goodnight to, to avoid going to bed. Then we will discuss how and what type of rhymes this book includes. We will also use this as an introduction to nursery rhymes.
