Boys, boys, boys. My husband and I have 10 nephews and 2 nieces. I joke that we are going to have all girls when the time comes. He really wants boys though! Guess I should be prepared.
Makes me think of the boys in my classroom. Sometimes getting them to read can be a great challenge! I work hard to find books that they enjoy in order to motivate them to read.
Their absolute favorite is Fly Guy. It is easy enough for some of my lower readers and they get such a kick out of it! A huge shout-out to Tedd Arnold for continuing to make so many Fly Guy books! I think I have almost all of them and the boys keep asking for more.
And, David, is quite the popular character as well. Maybe because he reminds my boys of themselves?? They love to shout, "No, David!"
My boys seem to love anything to do with facts. And then they love to share them with me - so cute! They also try to quiz me and, well, I don't always get all the answers right!
A popular chapter book among the boys is the Magic Tree House series. I use them as read alouds during snacktime. They love it when I finish a chapter and "leave them hanging." I get a chorus of "nooo" and "read more!"
