In What ya Readin' Wednesday I share what my students are reading. This allows me to focus on what's really going on in the reading life of 7th graders. Hint hint - any publisher or authors reading, this is what 7th graders are REALLY reading not what I, the teacher, WANT them to read :) Let's get started on this week's addition!
The Host by Stephenie Meyer
I thought I heard the movie rights had be bought and there was a sequel coming out. Anyone know if that's right?
Models Don't Eat Chocolate Cookies by Erin Dionne
Holes by Louis Sachar
This is a classic favorite that I have to read!
The Lab by Jack Heath
Loser by Jerry Spinelli
I read this aloud to my students a few time. Nice story.
Peeps by Scott Westerfeld
The Singer of All Songs by Kate Constable
I hadn't heard of this one before.
Smiles to Go by Jerry Spinelli
I'm curious to hear what my students have to say about this one.
Bran Hambric by Kaleb Nation
Gym Candy by Carl Deuker
Crackback by John Coy
These last two deal with sports and the push to be better than you are.
