In the book Miss Nelson is Missing, there is a teacher named Miss Nelson who is constantly struggling with her misbehaved students. They never listen to her, so she decided to dress up as a mean "new" teacher, Miss Viola Swamp. She makes the students do their work, and start behaving. The students hate Miss Swamp and try and find Miss Nelson. Finally one day Miss Nelson comes back and all the students are on their best behaviors. The central message of this story is maybe you need change for improvement. The students needed a wake up call for them to realize they were taking advantage of Miss. Nelson. When she finally came back they never disrespected her again. ( )

It is a good Realistic Fiction in watercolors. It is a story that could happen to the students and it creats close connection between the story and the readers. As the book points out immediately, the kids in Room 207 were the worst behaved class in the whole school. They were rude and nasty and they didn’t pay any attention to their sweet-natured teacher Miss Nelson. One day, however, Miss Nelson does not come to school. In her place is the nasty, mean, foul-tempered witch Miss Viola Swamp. A true crone through and through, Miss Swamp immediately whips the children into shape. They are crushed by homework and forced to do work that’s exceedingly difficult. It’s not too long after Miss Swamp’s arrival that the children start yearning for the lovely Miss Nelson. Unfortunately, no one seems to be able to find her. Finally, one day Miss Nelson comes back and the class is as well behaved as it can be. Only the telltale black dress hanging in her closet suggests that there may be more to the class’s transformation than initially meets the eye. ( )

This story is about children who need to have their behavior in check. The classroom has a rude awakening when the sweet teacher gets replaced with a sour mean teacher. This book would be great for k-4th grade. For instruction use, I can teach comparison with venn diagrams. I can compare the two teachers and I can also ask the children to reflect on the behavior students should use in the classroom. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0395401461, Paperback)

The 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!
