Chrissi’s Class Reads #7

I’ve read 5 more books with my class and thought I’d share them with you today. At the moment I teach 6-7 year olds. We’re currently making our way through a book for pleasure (these books have had either a writing or reading purpose) but I’ll mention it when we finish! 🙂

Last Stop On Market Street- Matt De La Pena

Last Stop on Market Street

This is such a sweet story. It’s about a young boy who doesn’t appreciate what he has until he is shown how privileged he really is. I used it to get the children to think about how lucky they were and to compare the main character’s area to their own!

The Utterly Otterleys- Mairi Hedderwick

The Utterly Otterleys

A cute story all about otters who try to find a new home but realise there wasn’t anything wrong with theirs in the first place. It’s adorable. Again, it’s about being grateful for what you have.

The Princess and The Pea- Hans Christian Andersen

The Princess and the Pea

I was inspired to use this book recently when I attended a course. It’s a well known fairy tale (I love fairy tales… see Fairy Tale Friday…) and I think it’s so important that children still read or are read these classics.

The Pea And The Princess- Mini Grey

The Pea And The Princess

I read the children this book before they created their own story of The Pea and The Princess. You won’t believe the quality writing I got out of this task!

Tidy- Emily Gravett

Tidy

This has been our latest read. It was ever so sweet. It’s about Pete the badger, who wants to keep the forest tidy. He ends up covering it in concrete but soon realises that was a very bad idea…

Top Ten Books I Aim To Read To My Class This Year

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is a back to school freebie. Now, I don’t start back until September, but I thought I’d mention 10 books I’m going to read to my class this year! This year I’m teaching 6-7 year olds!

Lost and Found (The Boy, #2)

This is the first book I’m going to read with my class. It’s a quick read about a boy and a penguin who become good friends!

Up and Down (The Boy, #4)

I’ve heard that this book goes beautifully with Lost and Found! 

George's Marvellous Medicine

I enjoyed reading this book with my first class! So I’m looking forward to going back to it.

The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig

I really like twists on fairy tales, so I’m intrigued to see what this one is like!

The Bolds

I’m looking forward to reading this book as I’ve heard great things. I’m wondering if I should pre-read it as Julian Clary is known for being full of innuendos. I’m sure the children won’t get it, but I have an inner worry! 😉

Beware Of The Storybook Wolves

This book sounds super cute! 🙂 I like Lauren Child’s writing so I’m sure this’ll be a hit!

Meerkat Mail

I have heard good things about this book! 🙂 It does look like a sweet read.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Charlie Bucket, #1)

I adore this book and my first class loved it too, so I’m excited to see what they make of it!

There Is No Dragon In This Story

LOVE the look of this one.

The Three Bears ... Sort Of

I love combining well known stories and reading them with a twist!

What have you done for your back to school freebie? Let me know! Feel free to leave a link to your post this week and I’ll stop by.
