Books to use for teaching comprehension skills

I have been working on planning new lessons and incorporating new book to my Language Arts lessons. We are moving from strictly a basal (Open Court) program to more of a compilation between several basal stories and teacher selected texts. I found this list (I'm not sure where from...but thank you to whomever you are!) and I figured I would share. It is a list of different comprehension skills and books used to teach them. Enjoy!

And it begins,,,

I have been saying for several years now that I am going to start a blog, but never got around to it. So here it goes! I am going into my 5th year teaching and always look at other teachers' blogs and think to myself...I CAN DO THAT! We we will see how it goes. I am currently putting together a notebook of fantastic ideas that I have found this summer and my goal in the next few days is to share a few. I am open to advice and ideas as they come. I hope you all can get from my blog what I have gained from others.
And it begins...

Here is where all of my time has been spent recently! If you haven't checked it out, it's a MUST!
