Building a Reading List

I went to South Carolina for a long weekend to do some wedding planning, and although my To Do List was very long, I found time to pop into Barnes & Noble to make a list of books I know my sixth graders will love. Living outside the US, there is nothing better than browsing a book store with so many English options, at such low prices. Here are some photos I took to remind myself to add these books to our order list.


WHAT? Marisa de los Santos has a middle grade novel? 
She is one of my favorite adult writers, so I am dying to get my hands on this one.


My students love all the James Patterson books that are geared towards younger readers. 
This is probably the safest bet around for a book the kids will fight over.


I saw one of the Pre-AP kids reading this book after Stanford Testing. 
Anything called Doctor Proctor's Fart Powder will be a hit in my classroom.


Probably a Wimpy Kid knockoff, but my kids are OK with that.


These three just made the list based on their covers.
