I am about to start reading Ramona the Pest

Clip to ScrapBook #2

I started a chapter book at the beginning of the year (Charlotte's Web) but it was too hard for most of them to follow. (I teach in a pretty average public school)

I haven't done a novel since then, but last week we were talking about the word present having two meanings. And I told them about the part in Ramona the Pest where that happens. They asked me if I would read it aloud, so I think I will start that this week.

If you want really "classic" Treasure Island was recommended to me today, because Bailey White used to read it to her second graders. (Bailey White was an NPR commentator and wrote the book Mama Makes Up Her Mind)

Good luck!
