Our school has a very small and, if I may say so, dull collection of class sets of books. We have already done three novel units with some great sets of books that I have either purchased myself or borrowed from another teacher. I want to start another one this week but I do not like any of the class sets we have to choose from. What do you all think about me reading a book to them aloud and doing a unit study on it? Do you think it is necessary for every child to have his or her own copy of the book or can I just read to them? I have been told my reading is quite engaging so hopefully I could keep their attention.
