Chrissi’s Class Reads #8

Danny McGee Drinks the Sea

I wasn’t sure about this book before I read it. It looked like it wasn’t going to capture their attention as there’s not much to it, but I was wrong. My class absolutely loved it and voted for it as one of their favourites as a year. It just shows that they don’t always need an in-depth story to enjoy! Sometimes ridiculous works just as well!

As a teacher, I love when children make connections between stories they know. This is what happened with this story! It makes my bookworm heart happy.

The Bad Bunnies' Magic Show

I thought this one would be the favourite of my class! They like anything that mentions bad or naughty characters. They did enjoy it, but Danny McGee stole their hearts.

Wilf the Mighty Worrier: Battles a Pirate

Last year, my class read two books in the Wilf series with their last teacher. They requested that we read another in the series, and of course I had to fulfil that request. I don’t think this book is for everyone as not all of my class were engaged by it. However, the majority of them did enjoy the story, laughed out loud and joined in with some repeated language!

Cheesemares

My class really enjoyed this book which didn’t take us long to read at all. It made them laugh out loud at many moments. I liked that it was a short, snappy read after it taking us a while to get through Wilf. They often asked me to read this book, unlike Wilf!

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…
