I am not using a basal this year. instead I will be using Scholastic's Storyworks and novels. I would like some suggestions from teachers on novels to use. I am doing a camping theme this year so I thought about using "Sign of the Beaver" but I am concerned about it being to high for my lower lexile readers. Thank you in advance! The school year will be here before we know it! Yikes, summer vaca is flying by...

Whole-class or ability based? I've used these, but most of them were with small groups:

Shiloh
Number the Stars
Kensuke's Kingdom
Sarah, Plain and Tall
Bridge to Terabithia
Where the Mountain Meets the Moon
The Birchbark House (My students told me never to recommend this one, though. I think it has a lot of value.)
The Westing Game - Only for the highest readers

I usually start the year with a lower lexical novel such as "Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing". This allows me to first teach how to make annotations and have meaningful discussions without worrying about who is struggling through the text. However, that is the only whole-class novel I do. The rest of the year is book clubs/independent reading.

By the way, I LOVE Storyworks!!!! It is one of the best reading resources out there, in my opinion.

For the beginning of the year: Because of Winn-Dixie is wonderful. Mid-year my team loves Frindle (you can use it to teach character POV and Greek & Latin word roots plus dictionary skills). For the end of the year Number the Stars can't be beat! We listen to all three on audio CDs, which I'd highly recommend. The narrators are terrific.
