I am so excited!!! I've seen so many fabulous book studies for these books, but up to now, everything I've seen has been for primary.
Well ... guess what? I'm joining up with a group of fantastic bloggers to bring you the biggest and best book study for grades 4 - 6 ... and YOU'RE invited to join us! We're going to cover BOTH books - and discuss how to implement them in our upper grade language classrooms. Have I mentioned how excited I am about this??? I read both these books on my own last summer, and I really wanted to start using the ideas and strategies this year ... but I wasn't able to wrap my head around how it would work or what it would look like in my classroom. And now I KNOW that won't be a problem next year.
Make sure you have copies and get ready to join us. Our book study adventure begins at the beginning of July. I'll let you know a little more when we have more of the details ready.
Happy Tuesday (aka - testing Day 2) (aka - 23 more days to go ....)
