Teaching With Blogs: Top Ten Children’s Books

Earlier this week I told my class about the Top 100 Children’s Book Poll and how my votes counted.  I then wrote a post (over at my class blog) with my top ten list (and how I fared in the final voting) and an invitation for them to create their own lists.  It is a fun assignments for avid readers. Here are some of their results:

  • RG’s top choice is  The Hobbit “….because it’s amazing, has a story behind it and great characters.” Go here to see the rest of his list.
  • SB chose Hugo Cabret for number one. The rest of his list is here.
  • GN thinks her #1 Charlotte’s Web is, “…a classic. It’s touching, funny, and AMAZING!!!”  See her list here.
  • FB’s top choice is His Dark Materials (hmmm…that is three books, but I can’t blame her).  Her list is here.

  1. That is a great technique. I love how book can just suck a child into a new world. My niece just finished Sewing A Friendship and she is still talking about the girls in the book like they are real. Any book that can get that kind of response is great in my book.

  2. This blog is very nice and informative. It is pretty hard task but your post and experience serve and teach me how to handle and make it more simple and manageable. Thanks for the tips…books for young children
