Looking for how to start book clubs in your first or second grade classroom? These activities and lessons will get your students ready to engage in book talks and let them independently discuss what they are reading! Tons of fun ideas to implement over on

If your children love the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, you'll want to keep them reading with other books they will love just as much. (And are about the same reading level.) So I've gathered a book list of some other favorites that are similar and just as appealing. Happy reading!
The Tower of Books Challenge makes a fun and engaging summer reading plan! Encourages a wide range of reading and incorporates motivating tracking methods, in both 2-D (shown) and 3-D options. Lots of reading lists included, as well as an editable component. Gr 1-6 ($)
Pinning this from another's blog. I did not come up with this myself! A book walk! I love this activity for so many reasons. 1) It is great for those who learn best through movement and touch. 2) It gets kids outside. 3) It uses realia to teach vocabulary. Fun fun fun! I must do this with my ESOL class at least once this year!
