Top Ten Books I Hope To Read With My Class

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is a back to school topic. I decided to write about 10 books that I hope to explore with my class this coming academic year. Just 6 days until we’re back!

I shall be teaching a mixed class this year with ages ranging from 7-9! Here are the books I’m planning to explore with them.

The Pied Piper Of Hamelin- Michael Morpurgo

The Pied Piper of Hamelin

We are doing a book study on this book in the first three weeks of term. I’m really excited to explore it with them with some really fun activities.

The World’s Worst Children- David Walliams

The World's Worst Children

I have picked this book as our first class book! I’m excited to explore more of David Walliams’ writing!

Stone Age, Bone Age- Mick Manning

I thought this non fiction book would be great for our first topic of the Stone Age!

Ug- Raymond Briggs

Ug: Boy Genius of the Stone Age

Ug is another Stone Age related book which we’ll be studying in the first few months. I haven’t read it before, so I’m excited to read it with them!

The Heart and The Bottle- Oliver Jeffers

The Heart and the Bottle

This is another book that I want to study with them. There’s a lot of opportunity for creative writing!

The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish- Neil Gaiman

The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish

I haven’t read this book, but I can’t wait to read some Neil Gaiman to my new class!

Black Dog- Levi Pinfold

Black Dog

I have heard a lot about this book, but I’ve never read it. I look forward to exploring it with them!

Flotsam- David Weisner

138070

Another one I’ve heard so much about but never got around to reading!

Roman’s On The Rampage- Jeremy Strong

Romans on the Rampage

My old class enjoyed a bit of Jeremy Strong, so I aim to try this one with the new class when we study the Romans.

You Wait Til I’m Older Than You- Michael Rosen

You Wait Till I'm Older Than You!

I love Michael Rosen. I’m trying to read more poetry to my class, so this is the perfect choice!
