I love that book! This is a lesson that I could see teaching to many different grade level, just with slight modifications. Love the extensions offered by Blanche.

I have used this book for several years at the beginning of the year. I then go on to use Knots on a Counting Rope and Sees Behind Trees (from our reading book). The theme being that all have shortcomings but can also do others things very well.
For an extension of Thank You Mr. Falker, the children write a thank you letter to a teacher that has helped them in some special way. I then deliver the letters to the teachers. We are a k-5 school, so most of the letters stay in house. Those that do have to be mailed, I deliver the best that I can. It never fails to touch the hearts of the receives ranging from principals to PE teachers.
