Final Book Orders Due

Summer is near and that means that we do everything in our power to combat the summer slide in reading.  All learners have long to-be -read lists that they should bring home next Friday to help them find great books for over the summer.  I have also told students that if they email me, then I can let them know when I am at OMS and they can come grab books.  I get many new books over the summer that I would love for students to read and review.

Book order catalogs were sent home today - the biggest pile yet - here are some of my favorite reads:
  • Jacky Ha-Ha by James Patterson - a new book from this master author
  • Surviving Bear Island by Paul Greci - for the nature/survival fans
  • The Trials of Apollo #1 - The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan - brand new series!
  • Roller Girl by Victoria Jameson - A great graphic novel
  • Diary from the Edge of the World by Jodi Lynn Anderson - what if our world was really filled with magic?
  • Slacker by Gordon Korman - brand new book from this master author
  • The Land of Stories series by Chris Colfer - fantasy and fairy tales
  • Love that Dog by Sharon Creech - one of my all-time favorite free verse novels
  • Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman - mesmerizing and a challenging read
  • See You at Harry's by Jo Knowles - a tear jerker for sure

There is a teen catalog included in the order so there are more mature titles.

I recommend shopping online, as there is a larger selection of books than in the fliers.

Thank you for your support of our classroom library as well.  With every book you order, I get points which I then use to buy more books for the kids to read.
