After spending the evening trimming the tree my mommy, Grandma and sister (while the boys watched football), I am about to curl up with my new book club selection: City of Orphans.
At our school, we have been using Edmodo as a forum for book clubs.I wrote more about that HERE
We started off the year by reading Ninth Ward. The kids loved the book and we celebrated with a pizza party before we left for Christmas Break.
We are now reading City of Orphans by Avi.
I've just started the novel but so far it's great. The setting is especially interesting: New York City in the 1890's.
One of the other teachers at school posted these videos to help our students visualize the setting:
Several of the kids have already started reading and discussing online. It makes me happy to see them so excited about reading...even on their break!Wishing you all a very merry Christmas Break!
