Set Expectations for a Brand-New School Year with This Kid-Favorite Middle Grade Novel
by Tatiana Florival
What is the book that is going to be part of our class canon? I think Restart is the perfect book to kick off the school year.
In this imaginative school story by favorite author Gordon Korman, an accident gives bully Chase Ambrose a fresh start and a chance to decide what kind of person he really wants to be. It’s much like how the beginning of the school year can offer a new beginning for your students!
Fifth grade teacher Colby Sharp shares in this Scholastic Book Clubs–exclusive teacher review video how he welcomes students back to school with Restart to kick off lessons involving:
• Class read-alouds
• Character studies
• Text-to-self connections
Watch Colby’s review to see how you can use Restart for your in-class (and virtual) lessons this fall!
After watching Colby’s video, how do you think you’ll use Restart with your students? Please share your lesson ideas with other teachers on Facebook and Instagram by using the hashtag #ScholasticBookClubs. We may even repost your suggestion!
