I was hoping that some of you can help me out here! I have been a kindergarten teacher for 11 years and I work in a kindergarten center so I am not exposed to any other grades. For my master's class I am going to be tutoring a fourth grader who is reading at a fourth grade level. What books are popular? Any authors I should look for?
Thanks so much for your help!

your student should read The Monster's Ring by Bruce Coville. It is a great halloween story. Plus it teaches lessons about a bully and his victim becoming friends, being careful what you wish for and always read instructions carefully. Love this book and so did all the students I shared it with.

George's Marvelous Medicine by Roald Dahl is a wonderfully fun fantasy. It is a short novel.

Top Secret by John Reynolds Gardner is an enjoyable sci fi read. It is about a boy who wants to experiment with human photosynthesis as a means of nourishing his body. He turns green and starts to grow roots from his feet! Excellent read.

Is this a struggling reader?

There have been some GREAT titles mentioned, but they would be difficult for a struggling fourth grader to read.....depending on how behind the student it, you may want to consider a Magie Treehouse book for successful instructional reading or "No Flying in the House" by Betty Brock.
