I'm a 5th grade teacher who is just learning about guided reading. I'm trying to get myself a library of books for this level. My students range from a 4.5 reading level up to about a 5.5-5.7 reading level. Does anyone have sets of at least 6-8 of the same book that would fit this age level? Any idea where I can get books like this for a small charge. I've checked Scholastic but at $3.50-$4.50 a book, I'm looking at $35 a pop just for one title.
Also, are there any good links/sites/books that you would recommend to someone who is incorporating this on her own. Our district currently doesn't require it and teaches reading out of a basal. I'd love to expand and have my students actually ENJOY reading. I'm trying to learn all that I can before I go into this full force.
Thanks for any help!
