Teachers are always seeking advice and recommendations for novels suitable for particular class standards. There are many lists out there, but few are lists recommended by practising classroom teachers. So, in an attempt to compile a list of novels suitable for use in Irish classrooms, at the end of August, 2015 I asked teachers to complete a short form through the website, based on their classroom experience.
This is the fourth and final one of those lists, focusing on books for fifth and sixth classes. It contains a list of fifty-seven books, which have been recommended by practising Irish classroom teachers and others.
Hopefully, the list will act as a starting point for teachers who are looking for some new reading material for their classroom. Many of these books will also have lots of associated resources available elsewhere online. They would also be of great benefit if you are re-stocking a class library.
