Great Series Books
I mentioned last week that we are reading aloud some great chapter books. We are also exploring various series of books that are "just right" for first graders to read to themselves. We looked at books in the following series: Elephant and Piggie, Pigeon, Fly Guy, Little Critter, Pete the Cat, Henry and Mudge, and Annie and Snowball. This week we will be looking at the Mr. Putter and Tabby series. This series is also by Cynthia Rylant, one of our favorite authors and author of the Henry and Mudge series and Annie and Snowball series. We have a big bin of these books (checked out from the public library) and we will read some aloud together and they will be available for students to read at many times of the day. My hope in doing this is that students will find series and authors that they love. Then they will be able to find books that are "just right" for them when they visit the school or public library. If you haven't checked out some of these series, please do. You will like them, too. I'll keep you posted as we add more series and authors to our growing list of favorites.
