Glad you are back!! This is my second week of linking up with Jessica at Ideas by Jivey for Workshop Wednesdays. Today the focus is to share your favorite book to read with a small group.
It was EXTREMELY hard deciding on just one book. Half way through preparing my post I decided to begin again with a different book.
I finally decided on “Hank Zipzer – Help Somebody Get Me Out of Fourth Grade” written by Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver. The Guided Reading Level is R and the Lexile Score is 780.
Here is an overview of the book.
It’s time for the end of year parent-teacher conference and Hank’s in a panic. He may be failing fourth grade and afraid that his teacher is going to tell his parents, he comes up with a plan. Hank enlists the help of his friends, and even his annoying younger sister in an elaborate scheme to have his parents win an out-of-town trip so they’re gone during the conference days. Of course, the plan backfires. Will Hank have to stay in fourth grade forever?
This is book number 7 in the Hank Zipzer Series. After reading this book, I can’t keep the other books from the series in my classroom library. Both the boys and the girls enjoy reading them. Here is a website dedicated to the Hank Zipzer series and authors.
I would love to add some new books to my small reading group list. What are some of your favorite books to read with your small reading groups or book clubs?
Don’t forget to stop by Jivey’s blog and learn about other awesome books to use with your small groups!
