This summer I attended a workshop and during the workshop the facilitator asked, "What were your favorite series books as a child?" I immediately thought of the many series I read as a kid: The Fudge Series, Sweet Valley High, Ramona and later, VC Andrews.
The facilitator than told us that children who read series become adults who read series and it is so true.
I think that I was more excited to complete the Hunger Games and the Divergent Series than the teenagers who were the target audience for those series! As an educator I want my students to become children who read series books. I want them to feel like they have found friends in the books the way that I did as a child. Unfortunately in my high-poverty classroom this hasn't happened yet. My students work hard each and everyday to do their best work.
I am requesting several sets of series books for my classroom library. Today I am specifically requesting the Fudge Series, one of my favorite as a kid, and the George Brown Class Clown Series. I am specifically requesting these series, because the main characters are boys. The boys in my class often have more trouble getting into reading than the girls do. I thought having boys as main characters might help them develop the love of reading I developed at their ages. I have requested five of each book so the children can participate in book clubs or buddy reading.
Having sets of series books for my students to read will open a new world and a new level of reading for them.
Series are wonderful because the characters stay the same and what the kids know about the characters also stay the same. Therefore, the kids can really follow the story and figure out the lessons the books are trying to teach.Read More
