Read Aloud: Currently Reading...

We are currently in the midst of a read aloud that the kids cannot get enough of: Dave at Night by Gail Carson Levine. It was recommended to me ages ago by one of my colleagues who reads it each year to her class, and I had always meant to read it too, but it was one of those good intentions that never happened - until now.

It's amazing how far the kids' inferring skills have come along this year. I've been so impressed by the thoughts they've been sharing as we read. Of course they just love when they can make connections between the Harlem Renaissance setting of the book and what they've learned this year.
