What We Read In November

Hi guys! Today I wanted to share with you all the books we enjoyed in November and a peek into what we're reading this month. Our reading block is divided into to categories fun reading and assigned reading. During their fun read they can read any book they went be it picture book or chapter book. During assigned reading I will usually assign them a book to read that corresponds with either history, science, geography, or language arts.

3rd Grader
Fun Reading

my 3rd grader has been really into this series by Kenneth Oppel. There are four books that are based on bats. I've read along with him and enjoyed all four books. 

Assigned Reading

 For his assigned reading he read The Cricket in Times Square. He really enjoyed the book and worked on some activities for the literature unit.
