Our first big unit in literacy involves realistic fiction, so I will not be looking to pick books that really help me teach those elements. I'd love to hear what books YOU have "picked"--and for what reason! For example . . .
|We are reading "Shredderman" as our read aloud and are finding nifty words in it that we don't know and are making a chart.|
|Not a single of my students knew the word "assertive" or what it meant so . . .|
So . . . I'd love to know . . . What books have you shared with your class this year--and WHY? Why were they "top picks" for you? I hope you picked better books than I picked football games this week! Ouch!
