Diary of a Worm
Diary of a Worm - Harry Bliss,Doreen Cronin

Just a the title says- this is the diary of a worm. But this worm is just like us! He has other insect friends, a family, he goes to school and has a teacher. He has fears and dreams, and anything else that we experience in our everyday lives. This book is sure to have your students a giggling mess over the adventures that worm experiences. I think a wonderful activity to have students complete once you have finished reading this book is to have them keep a diary for a week. Not only does it get your students writing but it also allows you to get to know your students a little better. This would be a great activity to do towards the beginning of the year so you can not only get an idea of students writing but you can also get to know what your students like or dislike. Once they have completed, their diary you could come back and have students compare and contrast what they did differently or the same from worm in the story.

Hooray for Reading Day!
Hooray for Reading Day! - Margery Cuyler,Arthur Howard

This book is a wonderful reminder for students who might struggle with reading themselves. Jessica has trouble reading aloud in class and is very discouraged by it, especially when all her classmates laugh at her about it. When Jessica learns that they are going to have a Readers Theater day at school, she is so nervous that she is going to mess up in front of not only her class but all the parents there too! However, once Jessica practices and practices she blows her Readers Theater out of the water when the time comes! I related to this book when I read it in my teaching of reading class because I was a struggler when it came to reading for a long time. I think this would be such a powerful book to share with struggling reader to show that they are definitely not alone. An activity I would have students complete with this book is having students complete a writing activity about how they feel when they have to read out loud. While it may show that some students are confident and excited to read out loud, there will also be students who will feel comforted by the fact they they do not enjoy reading out loud and there are classmates who feel the exact same way!
