I just posted this in the 3rd grade forum, but there are more people over here! I just labeled and organized all my books today. I'm kind of worried that some of the chapter books might be too mature for third graders. I have books ranging from about 2nd-5th grade (with 1 or 2 6th grade books). I'm wondering what I should do to make sure they're appropriate. I would rather not have a parent come up and complain about what their child is reading if I can avoid it. Should I wait to put these books out for the kids to read until I have time to read them for myself?? I don't have all the books with me right now, but some include: The Cage by Sender, Someone to Love by Mazer, Sister of the Quints by Pevsner, and The Cat Ate My Gymsuit by Danziger. I randomly opened up The Cat Ate My Gymsuit (which is 3rd grade reading level) and saw a sentence saying something about an X-rated movie. I haven't read it-but that doesn't sound right for me-a 3rd grader might come up to me asking what an X-rated movie is! Any suggestions??
