Elementary: New Books for Grade 5W!

Fera Gunawan Times News

Mrs. Wasik’s class was so excited to open our “grade five classroom library starter kit” from Scholastic! At saving up our rewards points, we earned 50 new books for our class! The collection of new books includes titles by several award-winning authors such as Kate DiCamillo, E.L. Konigsburg, and Katherine Paterson. In addition to some classics such as “Sounder” (William H. Armstrong) and “My Side of the Mountain” (Jean Craighead George), we were delighted to discover many new authors such as Christopher Paul Curtis, Jamie Sumner, and Allan Stratton. For every chapter novel we finish reading in 5W, we get to add a leaf to our reading chart with a personalized peer “recommendation.”
