    Does anyone have any novel study suggestions for 8th grade LD self-contained students (about a 3rd-4th grade reading level)? We've read these in the past:
    Because of Winn-Dixie
    Holes
    Maniac Magee
    Charlotte's Web
    Sarah, Plain and Tall

    Movie tie-ins are great, but necessary! :)
