This is our flex week in school, so that means we should be up-to-date in our reading. We have a lot of reading to do. I am thinking that we need to check the books out on tape or cd or we may never finish them.
This week we are continuing to read The Amazing Impossible Erie Canal by Cheryl Harness. We have finished reading the main text and now we get to have the fun of studying the text that goes with the illustrations.
We are also reading poetry this year. The past two terms we have been reading Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s The Song of Hiawatha. We had started reading a book of favorite poems by him, but we did not care for the subject matter.
We are still reading Carry on Mr. Bowditch while we are working on our handwriting. I am so please with the quality and quantity of handwriting that has been done. And Nat Bowditch is cool. I really like those mathematicians.
We had been reading and studying Davy Crockett this past term, so I was excited when I found a book on CD about him. The book was written by Richard Bruce Winders and read by Benjamin Becker. We all enjoyed learning about Davy Crockett on our truck ride.
This was our week of reading. What did you read this week to your children?
