    Default 5th Grade Literature/Reading Guides

    Looking for some new resources for 5th grade this year. If you have any links or suggestions for literature/reading ideas, I'd love to see them! I'm hoping to find some already thought out lesson plans or ideas to go with books, etc so I don't have to spend as much time planning them.

    Thanks in advance!

    Build Your Library sounds like it might fit the bill for what you're looking for.

    She has sales a few times per year, and sometimes a BYL level will be the Currclick Deal of the Day (I get their emails). But it's only $45 even at full price, and you get a schedule with lessons planned out based on literature. Her reading lists are excellent. I get most of the books from the library, but I have bought some from Amazon and Ebay.
