List of Story Books for Boys and Girls... to keep them laughing and loving to read!

Remember those classic tales you grew up on, written and rewritten by so many by different authors? Well here's a new spin on them... The villains in the stories are now getting to tell their side of the story. Now, having read them, I too, like my students, feel empathy for these characters! It's a great way to start the teaching the author's point of view. I really like that my boys are really enjoying these books. Here are a few others... Did I mention that they are really funny?









These books below are new twists to classic tales!

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
