He visited our school to talk about writing and his newest book, Saving Mr. Terupt with our 4th, 5th, and 6th graders. Rob shared where he gets his ideas for writing, some humorous stories, and discussed setting goals and being persistent.
Only Mr. Terupt, their new and energetic teacher, seems to know how to deal with them all. He makes the classroom a fun place, even if he doesn’t let them get away with much . . . until the snowy winter day when an accident changes everything—and everyone.
The kids from Mr. Terupt's fifth- and sixth- grade classes are entering their first year of junior high school. There's a lot to be excited about, but there are new challenges, too. Everyone is missing Mr. Terupt. When a fight threatens to break up the group forever, they think their favorite teacher in the only one who can help them. But the kids soon find out that it's Mr. Terupt who needs saving.
