I'm breaking bloggie world rules and posting 2x in one day. It's only because I didn't blog stalk before I posted my Currently.

At the beginning of the school year, I set a goal to grow my classroom library. Enter "Scholastic". If you don't use Scholastic...you need to! If you want to but need guidance, let me know. I also have a code to get you 500 free points.
First and Foremost, Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a huge "boy favorite". I think they are pretty funny stories and it doesn't hurt that some of them have been made into movies!
All of my students seem to love The Magic School Bus Series. It's written comic-book style so it's very intriguing.
My first Who Would Win came in a pack I ordered. Boy, I was shocked...kids fought over it! Yes, they wanted to read! So, I bought more.
My nephew really likes 39 Clues.
A new book I've noticed a lot of my boys ordering from Scholastic is Geronimo Stilton.
This is my newest purchase. We'll see if it's a hit when I return to school.
My boys really like these Science Books too.
My Team Teacher thinks I bribe my kids to read. She says she's never had to tell kids to put books away. I do sort of trick them. When I get a Scholastic Box, I go through each book and do a quick little showcase. I ooh and ahh over them. If I've never read them, then I read the back or the first few pages and let the kids know a little about the book. Of course every one of them starts, "Oh, I just love this book..." or "This one is my favorite..." or "I'm not sure I'm going to put this one in the library because I really want to read it first..." Then, I put about 5 of them on my chalkboard ledge and don't let anyone touch them for 2 days. If they ask to read it, I say, "Not yet..." Then, they somehow end up in my library and the kids devour them!!
