We finished Edward Tulane today and are moving onto our 3rd Kate DiCamillo book for the year, Tiger Rising. The students seemed to enjoy Edward's Journey as much as I have!! They were so excited to learn of his fate and made many wonderful inferences, connections and still had very deep thoughts over just what Pellegrina's influence may have been on his lesson of love and his adventure! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect response to the story I adore!! ;)
Now we are eager to jump right into our next book with this excellent author! We will continue our work in our Reader's Notebooks and learning to grow as readers!
