I am new to fourth grade and have been discovering so many great titles this year. I have been modeling independent reading and reading aloud daily.
Here is what is happening in Room 210...
I am reading Punished. The story is about a boy who gets punished and has a spell put on him. The boy needs to collect special words to break the spell. The book discusses puns, oxymorons, anagrams, palindromes and onomatopoeia. It is a short chapter book, a very quick read.

Here is a book that I just finished reading to my after school students. This is a great story of friendship and perseverance. Kate uses rich language and vocabulary. At the end of every chapter, my students were begging for more. I would highly recommend it...a tear jerker!
