Read any good books lately? I hope so! The best way to become a better reader is to read MORE. It doesn't have to be just novels either. Any type of reading counts. Try mangas or graphic novels. If you are interested in a particular subject, look for good books on that topic. They could be biographies, cookbooks, even sports almanacs.

Remember, we read every Day 7, so make sure you have your book at school!
Reading and sharing about our reading is an important activity. One of the best ways to get ideas for new books is to ask your friends what they are reading or have recently enjoyed. You can also get ideas by looking for books by the same author or novels with similar themes to those you have liked in past reading.
These are some books recommended by students in my class. For more information about the books, click on the links to see their Shelfari pages.
Check out my bookshelf! These are some of my favorite novels for middle grades, as well as books on my "to read" list. Many of these have been read by students during our KCD's Middle School Book Clubs or for summer reading lists in the past.
