Classroom at the end of the hall was a funny and a meaningful book. There was a lesson after every chapter. Like in the new art teacher Charlie used to hate art until he realised that the things he drew actually showed up on real stick figure people. So then he started making an effort to make these stick figure people look good. If he drew big huge square ears on his stick figure person the ears would show on Miss Tra-la-la his new stick figure art teacher. This gave me a lesson that you try yo ...more
This book was an okay book. It is a book made out of short stories. All of the stories are humorous and contain a valuable lesson for kids. All the children have a problem, they are either messy, can't read...etc. However they all find a way to solved their problem in a funny yet educational way. The characters are a lot of fun, and it is nice to learn as you read. Douglas Evans has a nice style of writing, he makes his characters feel exactly how YOU would feel if you were in their situation. T ...more

Each chapter of this story is a different story from a student in the classroom at the end of the hall. Love that one story can show different author perspectives!

The Classroom at the End of the Hall by Douglas Evans is a fun chapter book that will even get reluctant readers to keep turning the pages. As a teacher, I saw some of my students in these characters and I am sure children will be able to identify with them as well. Whether they see themselves or someone in their class, there is enough fun, exaggeration, and peculiarities in the room at the end of the hall for everyone. This story would be great as a read aloud too!
Be careful what you wish for. This book is full of short stories about kids who wish for things that come true, and in the end things turn out a lot worse. I thought these stories were very humorous. I think this book would be perfect for kids in grades 3-5.

this was a cute book - definitely for our lower level readers in the junior high. i liked how each chapter dealt with a student, their issues and how those issues were overcome. nice and short - which is also what some of our students like.
A great quirky and funny look at the fears and imagination that so many elementary students experience. Somewhat in the same vein as "Sideways Stories" but with a cast of characters more easy for kids to identify with.
This is a book of vignettes about kids in a 3rd grade classroom. The stories are clever and the book would make a decent read-aloud. The endings are a little too perfect, but kids like that.
I received this from a teacher when I was a kid. I used to imagine that I would do school work during the summer, but never did. But the year I received this as a gift I ended up reading it.

Engaging, very pro-teacher/pro-learning stories that any middle schooler should read. One of my third grade year favorites.

None come to mind

Great for kids

Do you like weird and magical books? The Classroom at the End of the Hall is a great book. It has many stories in it. They are short. I love this book!

I use this book to teach and reteach fiction summaries throughout the year. Each chapter is a separate story, and my students easily connect to the characters.

This book has a mystery in it. But it is not scary. The mystery is that someone is talking above the classroom. They have figure out who it is!
