I would like to introduce my fifth graders to "James and the Giant Peach", a classic story by Roald Dahl. I teach all boys in a Hispanic neighborhood in Washington, DC. Most of my students are not native English speakers. Many of them are below or far below grade level in reading. For many of my students, reading is a chore that lacks value and certainly lacks fun. Great books are essential to teaching my kids to be readers. "James and the Giant Peach" is a very engaging story that is a must-read for elementary school children. I want a class set so that every student can feel a sense of ownership as they hold their own book and dive into Roald Dahl's funny, lovable story.
