Outreach Round-Up, 11/1/12 - 11/9/12

Catholic School Fifth Grade: November 1, 2012
  • Short Story: "Three-Century Woman" from Past Perfect, Present Tense by Richard Peck
  • Notes: I was supposed to do reader's theater with this group, but the hurricane took us out of work for two days, and I never got a script together. This made a nice consolation prize. One of the girls took this book out right away, and many of the other kids were interested in knowing abouy Peck's other books.

Catholic School Fifth Grade: November 8, 2012
  • Reader's Theater: A Donkey to Market
  • Notes: The kids were shockingly into this. They read with lots of expression and their teacher prompted a nice discussion about the themes of the story afterward.
Catholic School Third Grade: November 9, 2012
  • Book: Jim Henson: The Guy Who Played with Puppets by Kathleen Krull
  • Notes: A huge hit. They got a little rowdy and thought Prairie Dawn was Miss Piggy, but it was such a success I'm building a program around this book for December.
