Back to School – Books on My Classroom Shelf

I am a language arts teacher, and these are books on my classroom shelves IRL, not theoretically. Some have even been stolen. I hope that is a testament to how much they loved the book and not their forgetfulness.


What would you put on your shelf if you were a teacher?

  1. OOoh nice! I remember Holes! That was a good one! I actually donated my copy to my sister for her new 5th grade class because prior to this year she was teaching kindergarten and then moved up to 2nd grade. So she needed to totally redo her classroom library! Holes I thought would be a good one for her class as I remember my 6th grade teacher read it to us, and figured 5th grade 6th grade, it’s all good! LOL!

    Here’s my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. There are a couple books I still have that I never returned that had been assigned as mandatory reading in middle school–I liked them so much. 🙂 Terrible, I know! This is a great list of books. I can see why you recommend them. I’ve only read two–Inkheart and The Hunger Games. I’ve heard wonderful things about Holes.

  3. It would depend on the grade, but we are partial to Lemoncello Books by Chris Grabenstein. Also, my daughter just read a book by first time author Lois Sephaban called Paper Wishes and she said it was great. It is a historical fiction piece about what happened to the Japanese Americans after Pearl Harbor.
