What Are You Reading?

I am linking up with Focused on Fifth for the March edition of What Are You Reading? You can link up a post about a book you love by clicking on the graphic above. Or you can leave one of your favorite books in the comments below because I really could use some good book recommendations for fifth grade. Chapter books, picture books, you name it and I would love to hear your favorites.

I've been trying to pull out more picture books to read with my fifth graders. I feel like the day is so jam packed and I just don't take the time to read to them as much as I want. So twice this year I have pulled out all the picture books from a favorite author and put them on display. The first author I pulled out was Patricia Polacco and right now it's Chris Van Allsburg. I have noticed lots of kids grabbing the picture books during silent reading and they are asking for me to read aloud more. So this has definitely given me the push I needed. Some of our favorites have been:

Clicking on the covers will take you to Amazon.

I love how gathering all the books from an author has given me the push I needed to read aloud more. I can't decide who else would be a good author to do. If you have an author that you think would be perfect for my next group of books, leave me a comment.

You can see more book recommendations at Focused on Fifth.

Happy Reading!
