The warden owns the shade.
I love when books have a film adaptation so that way it motivates the kids to read.
As a kid, I watched the movie holes but it was not until I was older I went back and read the book. The book is not super realistic in the fact the there are not really camps like the ones Stanley was sent to that I know of. however the story is relatable to kids. it is a story of friendship, brotherhood, and standing up for what is right that brings the boys in this story together.
This book is about a boy who gets falsely gets sent to a camp where he has to dig holes. This book is Realistic Fiction because it portrays the realities of children's lives today. Children experience mistakes and have to face the consequences of those actions. Also, this book portrays convincing and credible characters by really staying true to their ages throughout the book.
Genre: Adventure, Fiction

I remember seeing a book like this when I was in fifth grade, so I tried finding it.
Stanley is our protagonist, who was put in a camp for a crime he did not do. However, while he is in that camp, he starts suspecting that the Warden wanted him and his friends to dig holes to find hidden treasure. He also learns about his cursed placed by his great-great-grandfather.
This F novel is a fun read that the students can then follow up within LC. It is about an unlucky teenage boy who goes to a juvenile corrections facility in the desert after being falsely accused of theft. The story goes into his family history, poisonous lizards, and friendship. Following up with the story I would have the students create a book trailer either digitally or comic book version and present it to the class. #ucflae3414f19
Holes by Louis Sachar is a movie I enjoyed movie when I was a child. I didn‘t know until I was in the library that it was a book as well. The book was just as good as the movie which is probably why it won A John Newberry medal. This is another book that I would either do a literature circle for or independent reading for. This book is for 4th – 8th grade.
Stanley is sent to a camp for boys as a punishment for an alleged crime. The boys spend each day digging holes. As the story goes Stanley‘s family history is revealed and friendships are formed. Can‘t wait to share this one with my son when he‘s just a little older. #middlegrade
