Teachers, this section is just for you! We know how much work you do to turn even the most reluctant of readers into book enthusiasts and we hope the materials on this site help make that job a little easier. Be sure to stop by the age & grade level section to find selections perfect for the students you teach. Try the themes section for ideas of books that appeal to interest your particular reluctant reader already has, like sports or science or action movies. This section is also great for planning genre studies! Make use of the author and series sections! Once a kid finds one thing they like—trust us—they'll come back for more. Look to the printables section for classroom handouts, discussion guides for your literature circles or book clubs, and reproducible activity pages that are great for enhancing any literature lesson. You can incorporate the cool multimedia on this site into your lesson plans or use them as models for projects students can create on their own. The author section is also a fantastic resource for jumpstarting a super fun author study unit. And check out our book club tips & recommendations for even more discussion and book group ideas!
