Each person in our classroom has an assigned number and a basket in which he or she chooses a book that he or she thinks other people in our class should read. On Friday of each week, four or five students will have their choices featured here. In addition, each students' choice for the week will be listed. Please note that some of the above books are missing. That's because you guessed it... we're reading them!
Student #18: Wild Horse Scientists by Kay Frydenborg is a fantastic #ScientistsInTheField book. I like it because I love horses. Also its very interesting and it gives you a lot of cool facts.I definitely recommend this book. @HMHKids
Student #19: If you like books about horses you shood read A Horse Named Seabiscuit by Kathy East Dubowski and Mark Dubowski. My first reason is you learn about Seabiscuit, an amazing racehourse who made an unbelievable recovery and won the Santa Anita Handicap. My second reason is that at the beginning of the book it said that Seabiscuit's owner wanted to sell him because he was lazy. It was incredible when his new owner made him a race horse. Those are my reasons why you should read A Hourse Named Seabiscuit.
Student #21: Love the book The War to End All Wars because it tells how the war started, who was involved and who won. I also admire in war books, that they show secret codes and spies. I already know a bit of World War Two. I hope you have a WWII book. If you do, I will read it. Sincerely #21
Student #22: Plants Can’t Sit Still by Rebecca E. Hirsch is a wonderful nonfiction book about how plants wiggle, reach, creep, slither, crawl ect. When I read this book, I didn’t know plants could crawl or slither. I found a bunch of cool things in this book, and if I were you I would read it!
