    Love this book! Every class should read this on the first day and not be surprised when Ms. Swamp comes to their class when they misbehave.
  • (5/5)
    This book is great for a teacher to read when she or he knows he or she will be out for a little while. The big idea of this story is for students to realize even though their teacher may be out for a little while, students should still behave for the substitute teacher. The illustrations are fun to look at while reading this picture book. I like how the pictures did not take up the entire page. On one page, there was a box with the picture, and the next page a circle with a picture. Depending on the size of the picture depended on how much text there was on each page. The characters were well-developed. Ms. Swamp was well developed because of the description the older boy told Miss Nelson's class. When Ms. Swamp came into the class, the description the boy gave her accurately corresponded to her. The language in this story is clear and concise for students to read. The sentences were simple enough for students to read independently. For example, the story describes how "at the stroke of ten, the kids from 207 left the building. No one stopped them." This story is great for teachers to have in their library.

    I would use this book to teach cause and effect, compare/contrast and character traits. The students love this book because they might be able to relate to it.

    A hilarious tale of character as Miss Nelson leaves to have her tonsils removed. While she is gone the students are not very nice to their substitute, so then Mrs. Swamp, Miss Nelson's alter ego, comes in to take over! A light hearted read that is full of pranks and jokes!

    This is a funny story about a teacher who has to leave her class room for a few days, The kids think thy will have it easy until a older child tells them about a really mean substitute teacher named Miss Swamp. When the principle comes to teach instead of Miss Swamp the kids fool Him and leave school to have fun. But the fun did not last very long.I enjoyed the story and the pictures. It reminded of how I felt when I knew the teacher would be gone.In the classroom, you could this book as an example of respect for those who are there as a replacement, also honesty and integrity know matter who you have to face.

    Oh, I love this book. When I become a teacher I will definitely read this book during story time. I would say it is a good book for 1st and 2nd grade. It is the perfect book for school.

    In my opinion, “Miss Nelson Is Missing!” is a great book and a good teaching tool. This is a book that could be read to a class on a day when they are misbehaving considering the main message of the story is to appreciate and treat your teacher with respect. This could also be read to a class on an ordinary day because it is a fun read. The illustrations are very unique and colorful. The dialogue between the students is very engaging when they are making predictions on what could have happened to Miss Nelson. One of the students predicts that she may have gotten gobbled up by sharks and another predicts that she was attacked by a swarm of butterflies. I think that a young audience would really enjoy these predictions and find them very funny. I really liked the characters (Miss Nelson, the detective, and the new teacher) in this book because they were lively, interesting, and intricately illustrated. I liked the plot of this book because it took an appropriate amount of time for the students to look for and wonder where Miss Nelson went.

    Very funny story. Some kids decide to act up when their teacher is gone, but the joke is on them when their substitute, Miss Viola Swamp, comes into the classroom.CMB

    In my opinion, this is a great book. The author uses vivid images and colors in order to describe each scene in detail. This book is humorous and speaks to the popularity among classrooms these days. The language is easy to follow along with. It is descriptive and gives insight to what actions the characters are about to do/doing. The writing style is simple and comprehensive. The characters are made up, however, depict any average class of students that act out. They are well-developed and the author uses multiculturalism in order to include and depict a classroom where everyone looks different but is still accepted for who they are. This book is written in the 3rd point of view (they, he/she), meaning that the author tells the story of a class and a teacher as someone on the outside looking in. The plot revolves around Miss Nelson and their missing teacher. It is organized and follows a steady and continuous pace. There all aspects of a book depicted in this picture book such as plot, setting, conflict, characters, etc... The tension builds when Miss Nelson goes missing and the class looses control. The illustrations help enhance the readers understanding and the plot about which the book is centered around. The illustrations fit the written text and are also appropriate to the mood and flow of the story. This picture book allows young readers to see how students misbehave and learn the proper way to behave in class. It also allows them to learn the importance of respect and the key to forming relationships. As well as pointing out the imagination and humor, the author toils around the inconsiderate and unappreciative nature of these students. These are two major characteristics that are important when being a student in a classroom. Overall, I loved this book and would utilize it in my own classroom because it teaches children the values that come with being a student as well as a person.

    “Miss Nelson is Missing” is one of my favorite childhood books. The illustrations (by James Marshall) are such an important part of the story, especially in the last frame when the reader can see the dress of “Miss Viola Swamp” hanging in Miss Nelson’s closet. It’s also interesting to note that both characters share the same pink, round cheeks: another clue to the surprise! I also just adore the plot itself. I like that the students, the other main characters, go through such a drastic change of acting up in the beginning to being so relieved to have Miss Nelson back in the end that they behave wonderfully. In such a short story, Harry Allard teaches a valuable lesson in appreciating your teachers. I think this message is a great thing for every student and teacher to read!

    Summary:Miss Nelson is a sweet and kind teacher who has a classroom full of students who do not behave. One morning, Miss Nelson does not come to class and in her place arrives the mean Miss Viola Swamp. Miss Swamp doesn't mess around and makes the students get down to business with lots and lots of classwork and homework. There is no talking, no story hour, and NO misbehaving with Miss Swamp. The students enlisted the help of the local police man to help find their missing teacher, but he could not help them. Just when the students were convinced Miss Nelson may be gone forever, Miss Swamp left and Miss Nelson returned. The students were so happy to see Miss Nelson that they remained on their very best behavior.Personal Reaction:This is a great story to illustrate how classroom behavior should and should not be whether the classroom teacher is there - or a substitute is filling in for the regular classroom teacher. I love the implied information the author gives the audience about the possibility that Miss Nelson may in fact also be Miss Swamp. The story would be a great conversation starter when talking about classroom behavior and classroom procedures.Extension Ideas:1 - Students can create a character analysis for Miss Viola Swamp and one for Miss Nelson to compare and contrast, describing "How she looked", "How she acted", and "Things she said." 2 - Students can create posters (flyers) for the missing Miss Nelson. Students can draw a picture of Miss Nelson, then complete the poster with a description of Miss Nelson and contact information to help report sightings of Miss Nelson.

    Comfort book, almost all students have read it. I like to read it on a day when the students have worked really hard on a project and just need to mile and enjoy an old favorite. It also is good to show students how this plot is predictable, and then discuss how as their books become more complex in fourth grade, so will story lines. If you are a teacher, and know that you are going to be absent in advance, it might be fun to read the day before you plan to be out-get them wondering.

    Bravo! Definitely still enjoyable all these years later. I, personally, can't stand certain aspects of the illustrations, but that doesn't really detract from the worthiness or entertainment value of the book.

    This is a classic for a reason! Entertaining story, good illustrations. I think it is a must-read for every child.

    This story is about a class whose constant misbehavior causes their teacher to come up with a plan to fix it. For several days the students have a strict substitute who will not put up with their behavior. Missing their teacher, the students begin to search for her. Seeing that the students are behaving better, Miss Nelson comes back to a group of students who are ready to work and behave. This would make a great read-aloud when learning about cause and effect because students can look at what caused Miss Nelson to go missing, what happened because she went missing, and what caused her to come back.

    My professor in an education course read this book to my entire class to show us how teachers are often portrayed and how classroom management can mean everything. Great book for simple laughs and instruction.

    Miss Nelson is Missing is a fun book about a teacher who has a class that is not very well behaved. She decided to come to school dressed as a mean substitute. The kids thought they could get away with the bad behavior they thought wrong. She was mean and they hated it. When Miss Nelson came back they were so happy to have their nice teacher and the bad behavior stopped. This is a great book to teach problem/solution as well as setting.

    I enjoyed reading this book. It was about a teacher whose students were driving her crazy, so she decided to not show up for school. The class had a substitute teacher, a witch, named Miss Swamp. The teacher, Miss Nelson, was the one pretending to be the witch. She came to school trying to straighten out her kids. Her being the substitute helped her kids behave! They were happy to have Miss Nelson back!

    I know it's a classic and I get a laught from rereading it every so often, but it's not my favorite book of all time. I guess I think too hard on the subject matter, but it seems that the only reason that the children are good for Miss Nelson is out of fear of a return visit from Viola Swamp. That's not really the message of respect that one might hope for.

    Miss Nelson is kind and caring teacher with a classroom of rude and disrespectful children. Finally Miss Nelson can no longer take their behavior and "goes missing." After dealing with a much stricter substitute the kids try to find Miss Nelson to apologize but they discover it's not so easy to find Miss Nelson.

    I liked the overall big idea of this story. The idea of showing appreciation to those who are important to us. I also got the idea that the students were taking Miss Nelson for granted because they were manipulating and were miss behaved. It was clear and organized that the students were discouraged and sad when they realized they took advantage of Miss Nelson. This forces readers to appreciate people who are good to them.I really enjoyed the plot twist in this story. The fact that Miss Nelson dressed as Mrs. Swamp and acted as a mean woman to get the students to realize how fair of a teacher she was, was so clever. As a reader, I did not realize this until the students went to Miss Nelson's home and saw Ms. Swamp. This small hint wasn't obvious in relation to the plot twist but it made the reader think about it after reading the entire story. This build up and suspense of where Miss Nelson was missing kept my interest and made the book engaging. Ms. Swamp was illustrated as an actual witch, this added emphasis that the alternative teacher is someone that the students dislike because of her strictness and mean demands. The author made it a point that Miss Nelson was a lot better than the new teacher because the students went out of their way to find their old teacher. The language was paced well and the word choice and dialogue was fitting to the illustrations and plot.

    A cleverly written book that kids love to play along with. How do you cure misbehavior in your classroom? Get the meanest, scariest substitute in town! Miss Nelson knew what she was doing! As kids catch on, the book becomes even more enjoyable. At least one sequel to this book.
  • (5/5)
    Miss Nelson is a teacher whose class of young pupils is particularly rambunctious and resistant to structure and discipline. Miss Nelson is a very sweet lady, and finds it impossible to successfully manage the children’s instruction. When Miss Nelson doesn’t show up for class one day, the students are excited with plans to be EXTRA mischievous in her absence. Until Miss Viola Swamp introduces herself as Miss Nelson’s substitute. Viola Swamp is NO FUN. She’s ugly, for one, and she wears an ugly black dress and boy, is she MEAN. She makes them work all day, she skips story hour, and assigns entirely too much homework. The children long for sweet Miss Nelson, and set out to search for her. They consult with a detective (who is no help at all), they travel to Miss Nelson’s house to look for her, but run as fast as possible in the other direction when the see Viola Swamp coming around the corner. When they arrive at school the next day, the children hear footsteps down the hall, expecting the witch, Viola Swamp; instead, to their delight, a sweet voice greets the class, and the students welcome her back with open, loving arms. They missed Miss Nelson, who refuses to answer questions about her previous absence, telling the children that her whereabouts were her “little secret.” That night, when Miss Nelson arrived back home, she hung her coat in her closet, right next to—gasp!?—an ugly black dress, which looks incredibly similar to the black dress worn by Miss Viola Swamp. When she crawls in bed for the night, Miss Nelson sings and smiles to herself, whispering “I’ll never tell.”I would love to read this book aloud to a group of children. Since the book never explicitly says that Miss Nelson was posing as the mean witch Viola Swamp in an effort to make her students more appreciative of her kind nature, it would be incredibly interesting, I think, to observe the students react to the black dress in Miss Nelson’s closet at the end of the book. This book carries the underlying message that kindness should not be mistaken for weakness, and that you shouldn’t take advantage of people in any situation just because you can. The story places importance on being thankful for and appreciative of people who treat others kindly; and implies that there are consequences when you are disrespectful and behave inappropriately. You may end up getting just what you deserve—a mean, witch of a teacher like Viola Swamp!I would enjoy reading this book with a group of students, following with an open discussion. A brief discussion of literary elements could be included, but this is too fun a story to be taken too seriously. I feel it would be an injustice to the author’s intended purpose to dissect it to death.

    This would be a wonderful story for teacher appreciation week or a story to read if students in the classroom are less than well-behaved. Miss Nelson is nice to her students but her students are the opposite. When Miss Nelson disappears and a not so nice sub takes her place, the children are wishing that Miss Nelson would come back!

    A classroom of students is misbehaving so the teacher Miss Nelson decides to do something about it. The next day she didn't show up, but a new teacher was there: Miss Viola Swamp. She gave them a lot of work and the kids started to miss Miss Nelson. The kids go around trying to find her but can't find her anywhere. She finally returned to school and the kids were so excited. They didn't misbehave anymore.This book teaches students to behave and respect their teachers. It also shows that things may be better than they seem. The children didn't realize how much they appreciated Miss Nelson until she was gone. Teachers can use this to teach their students a lesson, especially if they are misbehaving. It could also just be used for fun because it contains humor. Either way, the book can make a great classroom read.

    This book is good for reading with expression. Children enjoy looking at this class that gets turned upside down by the mean substitute. Many children can relate with the students in the class about school, to some extent.

    Miss Nelson is Missing is one of my favorite books because I feel that it shows a side of teaching that most books don't. This book is about a teacher whose students are always misbehaving. She decides to trick them and dress as an evil sub, Viola Swamp. The kids are so glad when Miss Nelson returns because Miss Swamp was so awful. This book shows that sometimes teachers have to deal with difficult classrooms and that there are ways to fix bad behavior.
