My boy girl twins aged 3 love all of the David books.My oldest son now 9 loved these books at their age. Poor David he's always getting into mischief and consequently in trouble. But in the end his Mommy and Daddy let him know that no matter what they love David. This series definitely is a great example of the unconditional love between parent and child.

My 2 year old has memorized the book and loves to read it when guests come over. Can't wait to get the other books in the series.

David goes to school and learns the hard way about school rules. Great discussion on what we can and can't do at school.

Anyone can write a book like this. It was straigt forward but funny. I probably would bring this to my class to show that their is always a David. Other than for entertainment, I probably wouldn't let them read this.

This is a very funny book. It is about a little boy that has a behavior problem in school. This is a good book to read with students in grades k-2, it helps them understand the rules and expectations of school.

This Contemporary Realistic Fiction book follows young David as he encounters rule after rule in school. David is continually reprimanded for misbehaving and acting like a typical, ornery little boy. After David draws all over his desk, his teacher makes him stay after school to clean the desks. He dutifully completes his punishment, is rewarded with a ¿Good job, David¿ and a gold star, and heads happily off to home.David Shannon is one of my favorite children¿s authors, and this book has a prominent place on my son¿s bookshelf. His illustrations perfectly capture the ornery David and his many escapades. This book is an entertaining read and will always remind me of the hours I¿ve spent reading this with my son.In the classroom I would use this book at the beginning of the school year as a way to talk about some of the expected behavior in the classroom. The simple text and great illustrations provide for plenty of conversation starters about social skills. Another activity idea would be to show the page where David is looking out the window and imagining the dinosaur in the clouds. It would be fun to take the students outside and have them lie down to look at the clouds and discuss what they see happening in the sky. This is also a great book to use with beginning readers to help build their confidence in their reading abilities.

A funny story that is based on the authors childhood and the way that his teacher would correct him. The illustrations are amazing. He uses clippings from a book he wrote when he was a child to make the bok come alive.
mickmyster13 on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
The illustrator create a wonderful and funny character in David. I would use this book at the begining of the school year with younger children, maybe up to first grade. I would read it once through and then read it again and discuss all the behaviors that David exhibits in the book. My cooperating kindergarten teacher during my practicum experience read this book and the students had such wonderful responses to how David behaves and how a good student should behave. As a future parent I would also read this with my child before they start school.

David is now school aged and still finds himself getting into trouble. He learns there are many rules to follow while at school.
renee.sutter on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
In this book David takes his skill in trouble making to the classroom. He writes on desks and cuts in line at lunch. In the end like in the other David books he redeems himself. This is another excellent book that can be read to kinders to teach them about how we behave in school and what consequences might go along with some of David¿s behaviors. This is a great way to begin the year and set up behavior management in a fun and comprehendible way for young students.

Cute book and cute idea. I haven't read the first book (No, David) yet, but this one was decent. Not the most fascinating or clever read. It certainly gave me some stellar flashbacks to my school days, though.
abconnor1 on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This book started out with the teacher telling David that he has to follow the rules of the classroom including, no yelling, pushing, or running in the halls. David has trouble with being tardy and following the rules. He chews gum in class and has to be reminded to raise his hand. He also has to be told to keep his hands to himself and pay attention. He has trouble waiting his turn and starting trouble in the lunchroom. David has to be reminded to do everything in the classsroom to stay on task, but he is rewarded after he stays after school to clean the desks. The teacher finally lets him go home.

age app: primaryGenre: realistic fictionReview: this is a good example of realistic fiction because the reader is able to identify with the main character. Everyone can remember to the days of elementary school when we were just learning how to behave in that sort of setting.
tterry6901 on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
David goes to school and does not obey the rules. He is late, he chews gum in class and he does not know how to keep his hands to himself. He gets into trouble and the teacher makes him clean the desks and when he is done she rewards him with a gold star and tell him he can now go home. Younger students who are new to the school environment or students who do not understand discipline can relate very well to this book and this can help to show students how not to behave and how good behavior is rewarded. I am hoping that I can use this book when I begin teaching as a guideline for unruly students to show them as an example what not to do. The extension in this is to get the students and/or children involved in the story. Have them help what David will do next or what he should be doing instead of the wrong things. Encourage the class to do the right thing as you get to the end of the story and show that with good behavior they too can be rewarded.

David Goes to School is a great book for Kindergarten students. It is a book that they can read on their own. There are very few words on the page and they are in large bold print. The is a funny book that will keep the students and interest because they can relate to it. The book is about David and his interesting day at school. He gets in all kinds of trouble through out the day but at the end of the he fixes his mistakes and goes home happy. His mom is proud of the good day he had.

This is a cute little book about different ways David got in trouble at school. It does not tell much of a story, but it does have excellent full page illustrations!
schmick on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
What a fantastic read. So much to share and enjoy! The illustrations are engaging, the senarios are believable and humorous. Kids can relate to this really well; and adults should enjoy sharing it with the littlies.

David Goes to School is about this little boy misbehaves during school and for his punishment he has to stay late after school and clean off all the desk! This book has great illustrations and would be a great learning connection for young children on discipline in school!

Age Appropriateness: PrimaryGenre: Realistic FictionReview: This is a good example of realistic fiction, because these events do happen in classrooms.Comments: - Prefect book to use in class meetings at the beginning of the year. - Ask students why it is important to not follow David's example? - What should he have done differently?Media: Watercolors
meastwold on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This is a great illustration of realistic fiction, because the things the teacher says to David are things that I am sure a lot have children have heard. It takes place in a typical school setting as well which makes it easy to identify with.

David, a very active young student, has a rough day at school. He keeps getting in trouble. Eventually his teacher has enough of it and makes him clean what he messed up. When he has fixed what did, he¿s allowed to go home.

I remembered reading this book. I was six at the time, that book motivated me to be a good student.

This book is hilarious because it's so true to reality, it makes me chuckle because it reminds me of myself as a kid. I am buying this book for my nephews - I just hope it doesn't give them any ideas about classroom misbehavior. :) Also I LOVE the illustrations. They are beautifully colored.
