Heroes


This past week, I had my students bring in photos of their "Everday heroes" as we read and discuss the novel, The Outsiders. They are SO into the book, they just can't stop reading! I've had to adjust my lessons about 3 times to keep up because they just can't put the book down. Hey, there are worse things! We're going to be working on themes in the novel this week, and then choosing a final project.
After that, we'll be starting the Poetry unit, which I'm VERY excited about. Last year's unit was GREAT and I'm hoping this year will be the same. I just LOVE the poetry unit!

Plus, I get to change my bulletin boards AGAIN! Wahoo! I know, I get a lot of flak for my chameleon boards, but... I just love redecorating the classroom!

  2. That's a really neat idea. I've never read The Outsiders... I may need to add that to my book list now. :)
