We just got done with the book A Wrinkle in Time. It was excellent and the kids got a lot out of it. We had some deep discussions about characters and theme. I'm really impressed with what they're doing.
Tomorrow, we'll be skyping with a 5th grade class in Salem, Massachusetts that is also reading the book. I can't wait! I'll share the results with you on Thursday. It should be an awesome experience.
Also, we'll be starting a new (and extra awesome) guided reading book, When You Reach Me on Monday. Stay tuned for reading assignments. We're going to only spend 2 weeks on it, because on March 26 we are starting a project on Mythology (which will also be awesome!!!!).
