Read Aloud Challenge- May 3, 2013

What have you been reading aloud lately?  We have been busy reading books both for school and review.

Our favorite book that we are reading aloud right now is, One Minute Mysteries: 65 More Short Mysteries You Solve with Science!  by Eric Yoder and Natalie Yoder.  Our review will be coming soon, so you will have to be checking back to learn what we really thought.  I will say we are enjoying solving the mysteries

We are still reading, Moccasin Trail by Eloise Jarvis McGraw.  It is about a young man, Jim Keith, who has lived as Crow Indian and is now a trapper.  He learns that his sister and younger brothers are on their way west.  He decides to meet with them and help them.  We are currently at the part where he meets his brother for the first time in years.

We are currently reading City, by David Macaulay.  We are really enjoying it.  I am having the children work on projects like making a salt-dough and popsicle stick city and drawings of city plans.

We have also been reading some picture books for fun.  Knit Your Bit, by Deborah Hopkinson, is a World War 1 story about a “Knit-In” event at Central Park in 1918.  It’s the boys versus the girls.

The other fun book was, Too Tall Houses, by Gianna Marino.  Owl and Rabbit are arguing about how tall their houses should be.  Will the houses grow so tall they reach the sky?

What are you reading aloud this week?

You can learn about what others are reading at Footprints in the Butter.
