Many people, such as myself, give away comics instead of candy on Halloween. You can buy a bundle of 20 mini-comics for $4 to $5 a bundle.
The thing is, they make excellent Guided Reading or small group reading titles. These comics are small in size, 16 pages long and cheap. If you want to get comics in your classroom and try them out without spending a lot of money, then this is a great place to start. You can even work with other teachers so each of you buy one bundle then share and swap. Try it. Trust me.
How do you order? Contact your local or online comic book shop and order them before the end of July. What you order now comes in October. Act fast.
