Children's Literature

I am currently in college to be an elementary teacher. These are some books that I read as a child that I really enjoyed and ones I plan to use in my future classroom.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - Roald Dahl, Quentin Blake

Grade Level: 3-5, 6-8

Lexile Level: 810L

This book is about a young boy named Charlie who grew up with less. One day, there is a contest to find a golden ticket in a chocolate bar made by a famous chocolatier, Mr. Willy Wonka. Charlie finds a ticket, visits the factory, and is given the prize of a lifetime. I would use this book as a read-aloud to my students during free time.
