Miss Nelson Is Missing! by Harry AllardThe kids in Room 207 were misbehaving again. Spitballs stuck to the ceiling. Paper planes whizzing through the air. They were the worst-behaved class in the whole school.
So begins this quirky classic, first published in 1977 and still relevant today as a lighthearted reminder to show our appreciation to those we value. The students don’t proffer a shred of respect for their good-natured teacher Miss Nelson, but when the witchy substitute Miss Viola Swamp appears on the scene, they start to regret their own wicked ways. James Marshall’s scritchy, cartoonish full-color ink and wash illustrations are hilarious. A back-to-school perennial!
Miss Nelson Is Missing!
There's some kids in school. It's unclear how old they are because of the stylized art. They could be anywhere between five and fourteen, for all I can tell. But their class has "story hour", so they're probably younger, like first or second grade in you didn't really assign homework to kindergartners. The children in the class are acting up. They're throwing paper planes and such, and the teacher, the titular Miss Nelson, can't get them to calm down by being nice to them, so she's frustrated. The next day they have a new teacher named Miss Viola Swamp.
Just like any other profession, you can search for substitute teachers on the interwebs and find a wealth of information—guides, jobs, articles and even pop culture references have you seen that Key and Peele sketch? Some of it is informational hint In fact, books even the silly kind are a great way to not only break the ice as the substitute teacher but to offer up to parents of younger children who may need an explanation. In this amusing book from chronicles the tale of Miss. Like some teachers, Miss.
