A-Z Mysteries


I just finished reading "The Absent Author" by Ron Roy and I've never seen my students so engaged. They were ALL making amazing predictions and connections. Every time I would stop and leave them hanging they would moan and groan, but get excited every time I picked up the book to read. The ending made their jaws drop! I LOVE when my kiddos are this excited about a book. Are there any jaw dropping books that your students just love??

We had so much fun reading Fantastic Mr. Fox this year in my ELL class. They laughed, they gasped, they still talk about it! Isn't it the best feeling? :)
