Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Diary of a Wimpy Kid - Jeff Kinney

This a popular series within the 3rd to 5th grade range right now. The Lexile level is 950L. I would use this at the beginning of the year or even the first day of school. Greg Heffley learns in the Wimpy Kid books that starting a new school year can be hard. I would give the children ten prompts. For example, My number one goal for this school year is....and The subject I want to improve in the most is....This goal setting lesson gives students something to strive for and something to work at for the rest of the year. I could even do this activity at the beginning of January to refresh their minds of their goals.
