As you prepare to close out the year, I know many of you are working on your budgets and ordering materials for the next year. The ELA Department purchased books for all teachers in grades 3-5 last year and we realize many of the teachers are still in need of books to build their classroom libraries. In an effort to assist you with that, we have put together a list of suggested books for grades 3-5 that can be ordered to help build up classroom libraries. You will notice that the levels start at A because there were a number of students below level this year that didn't have enough books to choose from for independent reading practice. You should review your running record data to determine how many levels of each book are necessary to order. These books can be ordered through Scholastic or Lee Low. Please feel free to utilize this list if you decide to order books.
