Hooray! This project is fully funded

I will be teaching a fourth grade class this year. I am interested in getting my students into chapter books. I will be having a lot of the same children from my last year's class and know they are ready. They love to read, but I notice they only choose picture books. I want them to get into more complex story lines and have them visualize the stories in their heads. I feel my class of 37 bright young minds needs me to get them started, so I figure if we all read the same title and have class discussions about their reading, this will get them hooked. Roald Dahl is one of my favorite children's authors. I read them James and the Giant Peach last year and they seemed to enjoy it as much as I did. The book I want them to read is called The BFG. It's basically about getting picked on, which is a great topic to talk about with young children. My students will be able to practice the reading strategies they have been learning while enjoying a great piece of literature. I know this would be a great starting off point for these children who seem to be wary of attempting "grown up books" as they refer to them. I want to get them to a jumping off point while guiding those who need assistance. Thank you for your time and consideration.
