Back to school read alouds & activities

I will be making a big jump this year. I am moving from 1st to 5th.

I need to know what are some good read alouds (picture books) and activities that are suitable for 5th.

Also, if you have a great activity that goes with a book you use for back to school, please share.
Trying to get things organized and put together for a smooth transition.

Thanks in advance,

WONDER by RJ Palacio

My students loved this book and hated when we had to put it away because it was time to do something else. I had a class of mostly boys and the main character was a boy but my girls loved it too. It is about a young boy entering school for the first time as a fifth grader and is disfigured. The story is told from his point of view as well as from other characters points of view. Very captivating!

Would make a great read aloud for grades 5 and up in my opinion. I teach third and think they might be too young to grasp it's "wonderfulness."

I agree that Wonder is a fabulous book. I also love the book Out of my Mind by Sharon M. Draper; this book is going to by my first read aloud of the year. I also love to share books by Patricia Polacco with my fifth graders.

I read Wonder in my 3rd grade class. We never had a chance to finish it but the kids loved it! Several families told me they went out and either purchased it or borrowed it from the library.

When I taught 5th grade I read Top Ten Ways to Ruin the First Day of 5th Grade.

My students fairly enjoyed reading Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and their are several sites online with activities to go along with it. They also enjoyed the Wayside School Series.

Read alouds

I read Peak by Roland Smith to my 5th graders last year. It was amazing. I could barely put it down. My students loved it and could not wait for reading time each day. It has adventure, love, hope, courage, survival---tons of themes! Great discussions as well. Could not speak highly enough of this book!!

I also love reading Tuck Everlasting. Talk about some deep conversations you can have with the kiddos. Watching the movie also throws in a good comparing/contrasting bit as well

Good luck!
