Transatlantic Book Project: Recommendations from Mr. Waller’s Class


Martin
Waller
 is a Class 5 (Grade 5) teacher at Holy
Trinity Rosehill School in the North East of England. Last March, he and I
decided to launch a joint book project. I asked his students to tell me about
the books they enjoy reading. When they post about their favorite books, they
earn a special Book Project Badge.

Today I am passing along their recommendations. Whenever I could,
I added a link.

Holly. Rowley has a membership at the country club. Greg sneaks into the
country club and spends $475 on smoothies.

I love football. My favourite colour is yellow. I play for a football team
called Stockton Rangers FC. I sometimes read and when I do read I enjoy it.

 The
Twits
by
Roald Dahl

The
Twits
is about two ugly, horrible people called Mrs. and Mr. Twit. They play
lots of different tricks on each other and in the end never exist.

I love dancing and can never spend a day doing nothing. My favourite colour is
gold. I enjoy dancing, singing, gymnastics and running around. I read when I am
a bored and for the fun of it!
