Do you ever think that your students are having fun without you? That you’re missing out? I certainly was! I implemented Status of the Class this year, thanks to Donalyn Miller’s book, Reading in the Wild. My students were sharing what they were reading, but I wasn’t participating in it. I know, what was I thinking?? So I thought this would be a good opportunity to share my favorite 5th grade novels with my classes.
First up, The Cricket in Times Square, by Garth Williams. I love this book!
I’ve been home sick with my daughter the past few days, so I turned my recent readings into a novel study to share.
It includes comprehension questions and vocabulary for each chapter of the book. It works well for 3rd-5th grade students in literature circles or as a whole class novel.
