This Week in Reading

  • The Scrambled States of America by Laurie Keller was a hit with a new 3rd grade student. There’s a lot for good discussion and laughter with this book. Too bad the sequel was a disappointment.
  • A Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon was full of good talking points with a 2nd grader
  • Continued reading a loud by turns with a 5th grader Shelia Turnage’s Three Times Lucky. It was interesting to see my students thoughts on possible plot twists being strongly influenced by another book she just finished, Spy School.
  • Recommended The London Eye Mystery by Sioban Dowd to an 8th grade student who had been writing an essay about how he enjoyed problem solving.
