5th Grade Teachers

Hey, this is my first year teaching, and I'm trying to build up my library. Any recommendations for what 5th graders like to read? I'm a little lost.

Sign up for Scholastic Books. They’ll send you material to send home for purchase by your parents. Make SURE you write your new class code on your material for students before it goes home. As they make purchases, you earn points to get FREE books with. I also send home notes to parents asking for gently used books that they may want to clear their shelves off. Many kids are excited to share with the class and I offer a small treat for their efforts. I’ve probably collected at least 25 books this way. Good luck!- Nicole
