Celebrate July with Books (freebie)

June 26, 2018

It’s July so it’s time for another book calendar for all those July celebrations. I’m going to share these books a little differently this month. I’m going to split the books into two different posts so you can plan out for half of the month. So dive on in to some books for July for the first half of July.

July 1 – International Joke Day

What kid doesn’t love a joke book? My students are obsessed with these books from National Geographic Kids. There’s a whole series of these “Just Joking” books.

  1. These are great! I’m moving to second grade next year so I will definitely have to get my hands on some of these! Thank you!

  2. Love this selection!!! I’ve been seeing “The invisible Boy” everywhere. REALLY need to get my hands on a copy. & you can never go wrong with remakes of classics (the alien one looks so cute) Thanks for sharing this reading calendar with us ((:

  3. One of my favorite author is Mo Willems. My first grader Iove his books because they’re able to independently read on their own. Once they’re able to master the text; they like give elephant and piggy their own voices. I love that you made a reading calendar to organize the different books you use. I will be borrowing this idea :)! Thank you!

  4. Thanks for a great selection of books to read with my kiddos! I am most excited to check out Blue Sky, White Stars and the Patricia Bath biography.
