Accelerated Reader's report on what kids are reading!

Accelerated Reader's report on what kids are reading! 

This is a really fascinating list.  It takes all that data from all that AR quizzing that is going on in the nation's schools and lists the books that are the most popular at each grade level and then breaks it down by boys and girls.  Not surprisingly, Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a top of the list for 5th and 6th grade.  Hunger Games and Rick Riordan's books are also right up there.

It was also interesting to see which books must be read as an all-class read.  One of my personal favorites, Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli, was highly ranked. 

Worth glancing at and even sharing with students at your grade level!

  1. Just want to make sure you saw Renaissance Learning's 2013 What Kids Are Reading report. "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" and "Hunger Games" are still on the list, as are many other books that became movies. Your favorite, "Maniac Magee" also remains popular. Check it out here:
