Diary of a Wimpy Kid
by Jeff Kinney
The first in Jeff Kinney’s side-splitting series, join Greg Heffley as he’s thrust into a new year, and a new school, where undersize weaklings share the corridors with kids who are taller, meaner and already shaving.
I’ll be famous one day, but for now I’m stuck in middle school with a bunch of morons.
Desperate to prove his new found maturity, which only going up a grade can bring, Greg is happy to have his not-quite-so-cool sidekick, Rowley, along for the ride.
But when Rowley’s star starts to rise, Greg tries to use his best friend’s popularity to his own advantage.
Recorded in his diary with comic pictures and his very own words, this test of Greg and Rowley’s friendship unfolds with hilarious results.
Laugh until you cry at all of Greg’s hopeless shenanigans. Diary of a Wimpy Kid has got millions of kids reading and laughing at (but mostly with) the famous Greg Heffley.
If you’re on the lookout for a funny children’s book for 7+, especially a book for reluctant readers, you can’t go wrong with the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.

The Read-aloud Handbook
by Jim Trelease, William S. Pollack
“A lot of people use words like ‘psycho’ or ‘wacko’ to refer to people who are feeling glum or think they might want to take their own life. I think these sorts of slang terms create further isolation in a teen, and that’s not what you want to do to a teen who already feels alone” —Alexander, 18, from a small town in the South
“A guy is supposed to be strong, tall, and fast and have the qualities of an ideal athlete. At the same time he’s supposed to be smart. He’s expected to be nearly perfect.” —Chandler, 14, from a suburb in the Northwest
“What I hate about this school is that I am being picked on in the halls and just about everywhere else.” —Cody, 14, from a suburb in New England
In Real Boys, Dr. William Pollack explored the issues that most boys in our nation face today. In this fascinating follow-up bestseller, Pollack goes right to the source: boys ages 10 to 20-evoking the secret struggles and passions of America’s adolescent males in their own words. Their voices are searingly honest and eager to be heard, revealing how society’s outdated expectations force them to mask their feelings of isolation, depression, longing, love, and hope. We hear from boys and young men in big cities and small towns-including survivors of the Columbine High School massacre-who share compelling, extrordinarily candid stories about bullying, drugs, sports, school, parents, sex, love, and much more. Pollack also offers ways to start a dialog and illustrates through templates what to do in many situations. This is an eye-opening book for teenage boys and girls, but-with its insights and strategies for dealing with their issues-especially invaluable for all the people in their lives.
The Daily 5
by Gail Boushey, Joan Moser
Do you love teaching but feel exhausted from the energy you expend cajoling, disciplining, and directing students on a daily basis? If so, you’ll want to meet “The Sisters”, Gail Boushey and Joan Moser. Based on literacy learning and motivation research, they created a structure called The Daily Five which has been practiced and refined in their own classrooms for ten years, and shared with thousands of teachers throughout the United States. The Daily Five is a series of literacy tasks (reading to self, reading with someone, writing, word work, and listening to reading) which students complete daily while the teacher meets with small groups or confers with individuals.
This book not only explains the philosophy behind the structure, but shows you how to carefully and systematically train your students to participate in each of the five components.
Explicit modeling practice, reflecting and refining take place during the launching phase, preparing the foundation for a year of meaningful content instruction tailored to meet the needs of each child.
The Daily Five is more than a management system or a curriculum framework; it is a structure that will help students develop the habits that lead to a lifetime of independent literacy.
