I love this series for second graders. Great for reluctant readers, too. Mr. Docker is the science teacher who uses potatoes for batteries. Students will learn a few things about science as they enjoy the humor of students at Ella Mentry School.

Oldest loves these books. He's fast burning through the series. I need to find another one like it as it's hard to find anything that Oldest likes to read besides comic books (Garfield and the like).

The second and third graders at my school love these books. They like that they are funny and use words like "shut up", "dumbhead," and "butt" as well as the exaggerated humor, some of which they don't always get. What I like about these books are the many idioms contained within each. It might be fun to make a class book about all the idioms and their meanings contained within each book...and you can also use this time, if you so choose, to address why using the words "shut up," "dumbhead," and ...more

Recommends it for: children starting to read chapter books
We started reading the books in the My Weird School series by Dan Gutman and Jim Paillot together during storytime, but our oldest started reading ahead into the series on her own and our youngest seemed to lose interest. Occasionally, like with this book, our youngest will express interest and we'll read the story together. Our oldest likes me to read them aloud, even though she's already read the books on her own.

This story features a very strange science teacher who teaches the children some

I think it was really cool. I like how Mr. Docker the science teacher made a potato powered car. And they thought he was a mad scientist so Ryan thought he would swap people's brains. When AJ found out Andrea knew his name, he started to need to be nice to Andrea and at the very end, she actually told everybody his name and so he talked a lot about it.

I really liked it because it really made a lot of funny pictures and Mr. Docker was really funny.

This is one of my favorite books in Gutman's "My Weird School" series. Mr. Docker is a science teacher who loves the curiousity of children and encourages them to ask questions. In addition to wackiness and laughter, readers will learn about the scientific method and some scientific content.

As a read aloud, kids will delight in evil laugh if the reader is inclined to ham it up. Don't miss #10.

This is a goofy school story sure to appeal to young elementary aged boys. There is a crazy teacher, last minute homework completion which gets an "A," and lots of goofy boy humor, like answering a question with "your butt" because every kid knows that's the answer to any question...

This one wasn't as good as some of the others in the series but still classic A.J.! Thanks to the cover I would have never gotten the 'old fashioned lawnmower thing" I was thinking something else, not the old push mower, or the people mover!

Silly humor for younger school-goers. My kids loved this (and the others in the series) as we traveled on vacation. THeir favorite part was when a student asks the science teacher if they can look at their boogers under a microscope.

Dan Gutman understands young reader’s humor and has created a fantastic book formula to draw in even the most reluctant of readers. The My Weird School series is perfect for students to practice their reading skills with its repetitive yet hysterical narrative and story lines. But don’t mention that part to your kiddos, they might run away in fear they could learn something. A must have collection for any grade school library or classroom!

#10 in the Weird School series about the new science teacher who is actually an 80 year old absent minded professor type that welcomes science questions. I liked this one more than the others because it imparted a great message...science can be very cool. Chapter 10, where they are all driving in Mr. Docker's potato powered car...super.

I think these books mix it up a little with the teachers and the names, but it's mostly the same thing but with different teachers. I like the part where AJ thinks Mr. Docker is a mad scientist so it's time to find out - is he a mad scientist or isn't he?

The new science teacher makes science exciting; eating bugs, setting off explosions, and other neat things.

A.J. gets blackmailed by Andrea.

One of the more humorous books in the series. A.J. still hates school and engages in antisocial behavior.

These are some cute books Melanie got at the library. i think they might be a little below her reading level and more of Patrick's reading level. But they are still cute

THis one was funny and I asked my science teacher about some of the expriments they do in the book incuding ones with potatoes and she says it is possible. That makes it funnier.
Samantha
When 80-year-old Mr. Docker joins the Ella Mentary School staff, A.J. knows he'll hate science as much as he hates everything else at school. And that includes that girl Andrea!
