Here are five of my favorite books I have read this year with my 1st-5th grader reading students. Some of these I read with them for the first time, believe it or not. Old teacher lady can still learn a few things, too!:
I am so glad I chose this Grandfather of kids fantasy to share with my 3rd Graders. Several of the boys loved it and are now reading the whole series. The girls not so much so, but you can't please everyone.
I love, love, love Beverly Cleary and now my First Graders do too!
How did I not read this before this year? What a beautiful book. The Fourth Graders voted and chose this one themselves. Makes you believe that Jack London was the original Dog Whisperer
Never gets old.
"Why did you do all this for me?" he asked. "I don't deserve it. I've never done anything for you.""You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing"
Wow. That is the kind of writing that can get you through many a long cold night.
Thank you for reading!
