Leap Into Literacy 4th Grade
February / March 2019
Reading: Book Clubs
Through a read aloud or in book clubs, students can be even more inspired to read by incorporating some of the 50 Best Books for 4th Grade that Elizabeth Mulvahill from We Are Teachers, shares for Reading and Writing Workshop.
For historical fiction book clubs, you may wish to offer a "book tasting" with various levels of historical fiction books. Get students excited about choosing a "just right" book that they CAN'T WAIT TO DIVE INTO!
- Place two copies of three novels at each table.
- Students roatate through each table, read the back cover, and read a page or two from inside the book.
- Students then rate how much they would like to read the book on a scale of one to five.
