Books I Am Adding to My Classroom Library: Part 1 New (to me) Series Books
Last year was my second year in 3rd grade. It took me a while to figure out the kinds of books that would best support 3rd grade readers. It took me a while to learn what kinds of books hooked 3rd graders. It took me a while to catch up on series books that were a good match for third graders. By the end of last year, I felt that my classroom library was solid. I had lots of great picture books, some lots of great nonfiction, good graphic novels and many series that could hook readers. But I am always looking for new books. Books for 3rd graders are not so long so kids tend to read through a book or two a week. And I believe in choice so I need to give kids a menu of options every day as reader. So keeping the library updates is always important.
Here are some of the new series that I'll add to the classroom library this year. I'll get a few in the series to see how kids like them and then add to the basket if they are a hit.
