Classroom Library Wishlist

This is a wish list made of books that we could use for our classroom library. I am implementing a reader's workshop based literacy workshop in our classroom and to do this, having a classroom library full of rich and meaningful texts is fundamental. So after reading a few texts on this way of teaching I think that the following books would help to start us on our path to "EXCITED READERS"! :)

  • Frog and Toad books
  • Henry and Mudge series
  • Poppleton series
  • Clifford the Big Red Dog
  • Arthur
  • Mo Willems Books
  • Mercer Mayer Books
  • Little Bear Series
  • Any non-fiction (science related, planets, bugs, rocks)
  • Old magazines for kids (Highlights, ZooBooks, Ranger Rick)
  • Biscuit Series
  • Any picture books!

Remember too that this is a time for your child to fall in love with books. We don't want to push them too hard to read something, because it's what "we think" they should be reading. Allow your child to look at or read books that interest them. Don't push them into chapter books too early either...unless of course they want to...because this is the only time in their life that they will be reading picture books! They have MANY years ahead of them that they will be reading strictly chapter books. Thank you parents for your continued support!!
