Sigh, I love staring at curriculum documents! HA! Yeah right ... well not that my curriculum documents have been to much of a help either!
So I am enlisting the help of my readers. I have to do a novel study with my grade 5/6 group next year (and by the sounds of it I will be reading the book chapter by chapter to them) and I am trying to decide on a book to read to them for this group novel study.
Now, considering that I have no idea what is popular in the grade 5/6 range .. and I would also need a book that appeals to both girls and boys, this is what I've short listed so far:
1. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
2. James and the Giant Peach
3. Freak the Mighty
4. Charlottes Web
I would rather do a book that also has an accompanying movie that more or less goes with the book (as watching a video of a book is always a good thing too - especially since we can do some fun compare and contrast activities).
So .. this is my dilemma... do I do one of these four ... or does any one have any other suggestions of books that might work with this age group? Cause, I can't even remember what book I did in grade 5 ... I remember grade 4 .... but not 5.
