George Washington's Socks Literature Circles

Over the next few weeks, students in my reading class will be reading George Washington’s Socks by Elvira Woodruff. This is a delightful story about time travel and the American Revolution. Students will be participating in Literature Circles that encourage group discussion. Grades in reading will be based on participation and understanding of this great book.

Pizza Hut Book It Program

Your child can earn FREE pizza!!

We are participating in Pizza Hut's Book It program. Here is how it works: Each student who reads a minimum of 700 minutes per month will receive a coupon for a free personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut! It is that simple. I will keep up with the minutes using our regular reading logs that are due on Fridays. This program runs from October through March.

Reminder

Reading logs are due every Friday. Your chid is expected to read a minimum of 100 minutes at home each week.
