Seriously Serious Series

My students need some awesome new series books to read during independent reading time.

My Students

Have you ever had a hard time picking something to read? My sixth grade students are searching for amazing books to read and they need your help!

My students are sixth graders in a city public school.

We are a large middle school but we work hard to make sure that every student feels like an individual. The students come from varied neighborhoods and cultures. Students enter the school in sixth grade and it is the sixth grade that sets the tone for their middle school years.

My Project

The series titles that I have requested are books that students love. The copies that I already have run out of the classroom so fast that there are students who miss out on amazing series. These are books that student readers love and are inspired by!

Many times if you can get a student involved in a series they become a life long reader.

Series drive readers to want to read more because they get involved with a character and want to know more about them. They will read more than one book to find out about a character's adventures. This helps kids to feel successful in reading. Once a child finishes a series they are more likely to try and pick up another series to read to feel that success again. Please help me to create life long readers!
