Welcome to my virtual library! My name is Shay Denney. I’m a preservice teacher with a mad love of words in any format. Here is where I plan to store all of my favorite books for a variety of levels.
Roald Dahl’s Matilda will always hold a special place in my heart. It is a clever read for upper grades (and even adults!) about a little girl with a passion for knowledge so big, one could even say it is magical. It is on the 3rd grade shared reading level, and 5th for independent, according to Scholastic. There are also many creative writing and character building activities one could pull from it.
