A book about the one and only me scholastic
Only One You by Linda Kranz | ScholasticSeptember 7, A love of reading is the great gift we can give students. Reading opens doors, it expands worlds, and it connects us to the rest of the world. Research repeatedly says the more time students spend reading the better readers they will become. We, as teachers, cannot assume that students are reading at home.

I felt a great connection to the first set of fourth graders I ever worked with. There was a boy I wanted to adopt, a brilliant and well-rounded little girl, a class clown, and all the usual suspects you see each year. I wanted to show them I knew them as individuals and so I scoured the thrift stores and library sales to get a book for each child — something I thought they would be interested in and around their reading level. I wrote each student a personal note about why I picked the book for them. When they got the books, they got out of their seats and bear-hugged me. A couple of the students even wrote me letters over the summer to tell me about their books.

Teachers are pros at curating amazing collections of books for the kids they teach, so I chatted with a few to find out which titles they recommend parents have at home.

Skip to main content. Scholastic Book. In Stock. I do wish they had a couple of more, but it is not a complaint. My daughter can read, but doesn't want to try because she doesn't think she can do it.
Full disclosure: this school year I am blogging for Scholastic and I happen to have been a Scholastic Book Clubs fan for a long, long time. Book orders are one of my favorite things. There is always something new and always something to "ooh" and "ah" about as a class. Not only does the buzz about books fuel a love for reading, it also helps build our classroom community. I pass out order forms just before the end of the day on Fridays as a great way to end our week together — with a book in mind. Once the forms have been passed out, we do two things: star and circle. Students star the books that they have read and would recommend to others.
