Lions and Liars-Why this should be a read aloud in your room

But then, after this one thing, which I didn't even do, it was like everyone forgot I was this smart, good kid and all they thought about me was that I was the kid that broke Rich's robot...I figured everyone already thinks I am bad, why try to be good? The power of a label can change a student in a single moment and yet... we still do it. We start the year and ask for the files on past students, we get the down low from our co-workers and allow our opinions to be formed before we even meet our students. How many times have we been guilty of saying this student is trouble or this student is low? We create a self-fulfilling prophecy when students discover the labels they carry. This beautiful story Lions and Liars gives us an opportunity to look at how we can come back, how through surrounding ourselves with people that build us up, that remind us that we are not the labels that have been attached to us we can overcome. I plan to open the year with this as a read aloud, not only because of the message but the characters are funny, relatable and heartwarming. This has been more of a book commercial post but I really love this book and think the message is one all students (and teachers) need to hear.  Go BUY this book here
