Recently however, I keep having the same problem. I pull out an old beloved book and they shout out "We read that already!". And truth is, they are right. As teachers we tend to read the same books year after year to our classes. Another one of my problems- I teach the same cohort of students for 2 to 3 years. Luckily- I came up with the great idea of a library. (How did I not think of this before!) So desperate to find a book that they haven't seen, I trotted off to the local library. I actually was so surprised by some fun titles I found and hadn't heard of so I thought I'd share them here.
(Note:There is not really one theme here to this collection of books. We were working on "Reading is thinking" and making predictions and connections to text. )
