Can anyone suggest a nice picture book to read to fifth graders for the end of the 
year?  I didn't think to mention that our fifth graders are in our middle school so 
they won't be going on to a different school next year.  I was thinking of 
something having to do with summer or the end of the year or reading during the

Before school was out here, I gave one of my fifth grade teachers "The
Quiltmaker's Gift" to read to her class. She was very pleased, and the
kids enjoyed the story too.

I read "Oh, the places you can go" by Dr.Seuss to the fifth graders.

One of my volunteers brought in a book to me today that I will be sharing with my 
4th, 5th and 6th graders.  It's called Richard Wright and the Library Card by 
William Miller.  This is a story of a black boy in the segregated South who isn't 
allowed in the public library.  The boy loves to read, but has no money to purchase 
books and cannot access the free books at the library.  With help from a white man, 
he finds a way to access the books.  The books he read during this time changed his 
life.  Great intro to summer reading and the importance of getting that public 
library card.

What about a vacation theme?  Williams book about The Red Canoe (can't think of the 
entire title); Brisson's Your best friend Kate and postcards from various states;  
Williams' Stringbean's Trip to the shining sea;  Red Legs or Drummer Boy to tie in 
with social studies classes;

used to like to read Oh, The Places You Will Go by Seuss to my seventh graders as a 
going-away thing every year.  Just an idea....

i read (and cry)  Yay, you! : moving out, moving up, moving on  by Sandra Boynton.  
It is my tradition to read it on the morning news on the last day of school.  It is 
cute and funny but I always cry when I get to the last page :(  Who'd ever think we 
would actually miss them year after year ??
