Top Ten Tuesday- Back To School Freebie

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together. 

This week’s topic is a Top Ten Freebie to do with Back To School. Confession. I schedule these posts in advance and when I wrote this post it was the first day of my Summer holidays. Ha! Really strange to think about going back to school! When this post is published I’m back to work on Monday! Argh…

Here are 10 books that I hope to read to my class this year. My class will between 7-9 years old.

The Boy with the Bronze Axe (Classic Kelpies)

I have read this book before last time I was in Year 3/4. It’s quite heavy going at points, but it’s a good one for a Stone Age/Bronze Age topic.

Stone Age Boy

I think there are so many good picture books out there for older children, so I’m going to try and slip in a few when I can.

Ug: Boy Genius of the Stone Age

I’ve never read this, so I’m intrigued to read it to my class.

The 13-Storey Treehouse

This book is the first one that my class have picked to read as a class book. I’m so excited to explore it with them. I think it’s important that as a class we read for pleasure!

The Invisible Boy

This is going to be great for quieter children. I think it’s going to be a great talking point.

Give Peas a Chance

I am intrigued to try short stories! Children love funny stories so fingers crossed for these ones!

A Child of Books

Here’s another picture book that I can’t wait to explore!

6397169

I have enjoyed Anthony Browne’s work before, so I’m intrigued to see this one.

You're a Bad Man, Mr Gum!

I have heard such good things about this book! 🙂 I’m looking forward to reading it!

The Sandwich Thief

This book very nearly won our vote, so I’m hopefully going to get around to reading it!

What have you done for the freebie this week? Feel free to leave a link to your post and I’ll stop by!

Top Ten Books On My Autumn To-Be-Read list

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list are the Top Ten Books on my Autumn (Fall) To Be Read list. I have failed somewhat at the last two TBR lists, so I’m going to bring those books over to Autumn and hope I can get to them. I really do want to! I’ve also just started a postgraduate course, so my reading is going to be incredibly limited for a while. Therefore, I don’t want to add to many new books to this post as I always feel some sort of weird obligation to read them if I’ve put them in a Top Ten post!
