2018 Chapter Book List: Books Read and Rated

For 2018, my goal is going to be a little different.

I want to read 60 “new to me” novels and 40 transitional chapter books.

This honours that part of my reading is about knowing the titles that my students read and transitional chapter books are a big piece of a primary classroom’s reading soul.

I will keep track of both of them on this page

For my own future reference, books will be rated on a 5 star system.
