In November we read a book in class called The Dot. It is about a girl who thinks she sucks at art but then discovers that anything you do is art. It is a picture book but it has a very good message. The picture is hard to see but it is the cover.
The One And Only Ivan
After we were done reading The Dot and doing a project, we read The One And Only Ivan. It is a book that classes the world over were reading. It is about a gorilla who lives in a glass 'domain' on the side of the highway and he learns about the true meaning of friendship. It is a book based on a real story but it is missing parts and the author added parts so it was as heart braking. .
Because of Mr. Terupt
Once we finished The One And Only Ivan, we started reading Because of Mr. Terupt. We haven`t finished reading it but so far it is good. It is about seven different kids all in one class. Peter is the trouble maker, Luke is the brains, Anna has a bad background of her family, Jessica is the new girl, Danielle is a girl slightly over weight, Alexia is a bully, and Jeffrey, a boy that hates school. Then there is Mr. Terupt. A new teacher. one accident brings them all together.
This is a video a a girl name Anna Zbacnik did on Because of Mr.Terupt
I believe that we are done read aloud and will not be reading books with the whole class.
