Intermediate Book Spotlight- The War the Saved My Life
So begins a new adventure of Ada, and for Susan Smith, the woman who is forced to take the two kids in. As Ada teaches herself to ride a pony, learns to read, and watches for German spies, she begins to trust Susan—and Susan begins to love Ada and Jamie. But in the end, will their bond be enough to hold them together through wartime? Or will Ada and her brother fall back into the cruel hands of their mother?
Primary Book Spotlight- Last Stop on Market Street
- Bibllonaslum gives teachers and students a social network for promoting reading. Students can provide book reviews and recommendations to classmates. Our teachers have used the site to create reading challenges among their students and classes, as well as provide reading lists to students and parents. Students can also maintain their reading logs online with this wonderful website!
- Geogussr lets students journey and explore throughout the world. This site uses Google Maps and starts students in a specific location somewhere in the world. Students must navigate throughout the landscape to find clues to identify their specific location. Once a guess is made, points are awarded based on how close the guess was to the actual location. Teachers love this addicting game because it teaches students a great deal about world geography as well as critical thinking skills at the same time!
