Pax UpdateWe wrapped up our third week with our read aloud, and the project has been going great. We have enjoyed using Twitter to discuss the book and characters with other classes around the world. We have connected with students as far away as Europe, Australia and Canada. We are making a hall display to chart the many ways we have talked about the book.
Based on the suggestion of another class, we decided to start posting our thoughts in greater detail in blogs. Check out http://tswick.edublogs.org for some of our work. We just started this week, so more work will appear soon.
Also in even more exciting news, I have learned that the author will be visiting the main branch of Richland County Library on Sunday Nov. 13. I’d like to have a group plan to meet for this event. I know the class would love to meet Sara Pennypacker. Mark your calendars, and I will be in touch with more news soon.
