Mr. Wolf's students are having a "writer's workshop" and are learning about personal narratives. Sampson doesn't think anything worth writing has ever happened to him. He'd rather think about space pirates and zombies, anyway. But when Sampson and Margot go for a bike ride one morning, he has an accident that gives him a new perspective, and he thanks his lucky stars that ...more

After being left a little flat by the Mystery Club book, this one filled me with joy. We see more of Mr Wolf, still adapting to life as a teacher and struggling to make sense of it all, and his class are encouraged to present a personal piece of narrative writing.

Here we see friendships develop, not least between Margot and Sampson. The class are bonding, Mr Wolf is beginning to find his feet, and as a series this could run and run.

Having spent 13 years in elementary schools, this book felt authentic... even with the characters as personified animals. That aside, the story captures a day in the life of from writers’ workshop to cut-throat 4 square. I like the diversity in the characters, and the everyday problems kids at this age face. Not big problems, but problems. This would make a good read aloud or a book for students to see their lives represented in a book...graphic novel. This was my first Mr. Wolf”s Class book. I ...more

Recommends it for: Grades 2-5
171 pages. This series is really funny and realistic. The illustrations are very good and colorful. This time Samson and Margot go bike riding down Chicken Hill and get into a bit of trouble. Kids will enjoy this one. Highly recommended for Grades 2-5.

Fun first chapter book!

This is a fun graphic novel that would be perfect for any 1st-2nd grader. It is an easy first chapter book with nice pictures and an interesting plot. It is part of a book series that any reluctant reader would enjoy. This book is set in Mr. Wolf’s animal class where we meet all kinds of students and follow their daily adventures.

In this book, when class starts, Mr. Wolf tells his students that they are doing writer’s workshops. They are writing personal narratives. A
This time we have accidents, one kid can go to Hawaii, there is a writer's workshop and the kids all have to write about something. I had a laugh at how one kid was feeding the rats and getting "gifts", which was funny but I am sad that the ending with the wallet was rushed and that we never know what happens next.
I also don't get why Sampson didn't put on his helmet properly, that was just beyond dumb and I hope from this he learns to strap his helmet. Either way, if he had fallen he would hav

Mr. Wolf is having a writer's workshop for his students, except for Randy (whose their mothers are getting married in Hawaii). Most of the students are having fun thinking of their ideas of their autobiographies, but Samson is having a writer's block.

One day, Sampson and Margot are riding in their bicycles all the way through Chicken Hill, but suddenly he accidentally fell down and rushed to the hospital. He gasped that his right arm is broken, and frowned that he can only do things with his le

I really like this series. It has humor for kids and teachers alike. (It's obvious that Steinke is a wonderful teacher himself.)

One of the things that made me laugh was the kids claiming they had learned the current lesson "last year." I heard that so often, and of course, they "learned it," but couldn't explain it or apply it.

Also, there's that one kid who always raises their hand. You know the one. You might BE the one since you're on Goodreads. Teachers have a complex relationship with those

Another absolutely lovely book set in Mr. Wolf's 4th grade class. This time the students have to write a personal narrative, and unfortunately, Sampson has nothing to write about. Then something happens that gives him lots of details to include! As with the others in this series, the charm of this book is in the just right details about 4th grade life - the recess squabbles, the kid who asks for homework on the way out the door on Friday when she's going to Hawaii in the morning for a week, etc. ...more

I read the first Mr. Wolf book late last year and loved it, so I bought the set for my school’s library. Of course I had to make sure the 2nd and 3rd were just as good before letting the students check them out! I think the elementary students will love these because the illustrations are great, the stories are realistic but interesting, and graphic novels are always a hit here! I think Lucky Stars has been my favorite so far - I love the story.

My students love the books in these series, so I had to check it out. It's an easy read for my striving readers. The plotlines are interesting without being complex and there are clear illustrations which makes this a good choice for my 3-5th graders. They seem to enjoy the relatable school stories. Mr. Wolf is a lovable teacher. Occasionally, there was even a bit of teacher humor sprinkled in. ...more

Teachers, one of the main themes here is personal narrative writing in the writing workshop! Great read aloud idea for your unit! Love this for all elementary teachers and students, just so many connections! Also, be sure to read the author's bio for the connection with the bike accident. ...more

Rats, writing, and broken bones. The class writes personal narratives. It would be neat to use this to introduce an assignment on personal narrative writing.
