Anne Frank
Anne Frank: A Hidden Life - Mirjam Pressler

AR: 8.5

Grade Level: 6th-8th

Summary: Anne Frank: A Hidden Life is all about what Anne Frank and her family endured through the Holocaust. Anne Frank: A Hidden Life gives extreme detail, and allows the reader to experience the Holocaust through Anne's perspctive. 

Idea: This is a great way to intertwine reading into social studies because it covers a momumental part of our history.  I would most definitely use this book for upper grades, most likely 6th. I feel like the reading level and content is most appropiate here. For my lower level students, I can always fit this book into where I would meet their needs. This way, they would not miss out on a first hand account of a young girl, who experienced every bit of the Holocaust.

The More You Read, The More Knowledgeable You'll Be..
Harriet the Spy - Louise Fitzhugh

AR: 4.5

Grade Level: 4th-7th

Summary: Have you ever written about someone, for your personal use? Well, Harriet has! She has this notebook where she records everything in, about EVERYONE! Then she loses it, and someone gets a hold to it. This person reveals all of Harriet's secrets, and here is where she learns the concept of empathy. 

Idea: I would use Harriet the Spy for a lesson on character. Specifically speaking, I would use it for building empathy. I could use a variety of lessons from having students starting their own notebook, where they write something they did for someone else to giving each other compliments every day. This would all be for the sole purpose of being empathetic!

That's What Friends Are For!
Bridge to Terabithia - Katherine Paterson

AR: 4.6

Grade Level: 4th-8th

Summary: This book is all about imagination! Two friends come together to build a magical kingdom, until something tragic happens. However, this devastation is an impetus for Jess' understanding of strength and courage. 

Idea: I would use this book for the purpose of building character. I would allow for my students to come up with their own magical kingdom (class-wide). They would be required to build a script, then act it out. It would be a made from scratch. It would be an original readers' theater!

Charlotte's Web
Charlotte's Web - Garth Williams,E.B. White,Kate DiCamillo

AR: 4.4

Grade Level: 2nd-7th

Summary: Have you ever made a friend, unexpectedly?! This book is all about friendship and encouragement. It also provides a good lesson on animals and humans coming together to find a solution to a problem. 

Idea: I will most definitely be implementing a variety of activities in my classroom, using this book. These activies could range from building character to writing! I also feel like you could use this book for almost any grade level. One just has to implement it where appropiate.
