My Weird School - Must Read Monday

To be honest I was in two minds about recommending these books, however, due to the fact that both my class last year and this year have adored the series, I am going to.
The My Weird School series is by Dan Gutman and is about the adventures of A.J. and his classmates in Second Grade at Ella Mentary School. A.J. is your typically naughty, boisterous boy and frequently gets himself and his friends in trouble. The language can be a bit rude for my taste, but I edit out the words I don't like as I read aloud! The series is perfect though for introducing chapter books to children, which is why I've used them for the last couple of years. 

Some favourites of my class include:

  1. My students LOVE those books too!

  2. I'm going to have to give these a try! I have them in my book center, but I've never used them as a read-aloud. I haven't been able to get away with "editing the words" during read-alouds this year because I have a little group of girls who check out every single book I read aloud so that they can follow along! #gottalovethem :)

  3. Thanks for the suggestion. I ordered a bunch through Scholastic, but have yet to read one. I'll have to try it!
