Literature Text for Writing

Help! Starting a 4-week Saturday session tomorrow with students in which we use reading selections as a springboard for writing. Was looking for a textbook that has reading selections/excerpts/short stories of tried-and-true material-- for example, a chapter from a 'Little House' book, a Madeline L'Engle passage, or something like Isaac Asimov's 'The Fun They Had'-- but cannot find a good one. Has been many years since I taught and it seems what I'm looking for no longer exists-- any suggestions? I'm wanting shorter selections because the sessions are short-- and I want students to be able to sample different types of lit. Any suggestions?

I don't know of a book with short selections, but I do know one short story fifth graders seem to love - Charles by Shirley Jackson.

I found this on the internet a few days ago. If you scroll through, there are lots of great stories included:
