The Reading Bug

19 Mar

I just had to share what’s currently happening in my classroom.  As a result of reading such books as: Found by Margaret Peterson Haddix, The City of Ember by Jeanne DePrau, and The Dark Is Rising by Susan Cooper for reading groups, my students have caught the reading bug!  Many of them have begun reading the next books in the series and informally meet to talk about what they are reading. 

Traditionally, I’ve just stuck with the same novels on the fifth grade shelf.  However, I decided to go out on a limb and obtain titles that I learned about in SLM 503, Children’s Literature.  It has been worth the investment!  I am so excited that my students are excited about reading!

Check out the Animoto I created to get them hooked on reading!
