Elijah of Buxton


Elijah of Buxton is a beautiful book.  Great dialect  (an awesome workout as a read-aloud:) funny, tender, moving, and the students certainly enjoy watching Mrs. Jantzen get choked up every Wednesday morning during the Grade six Learning Commons time:)


What are you reading today?


This is a great question and one I hope you always have an answer for —  that you always have a book or two on the go!  Today I am reading “Middlemarch: A study in provincial life” by George Eliot (Mary Anne Evans) and “Drums Girls and Dangerous Pie” by Jordan Sonnenblick.  One’s for me….ones’ for the Grade eight class.  Fun, relaxing, meaningful, learning things…..can’t beat reading!

Have a great day…..

I’ve said it before

I've said it before

I know I’ve said it before – but I’d like to say it again. This is a beautiful book and one of my FAVORITE read-a-louds to date – we spent time in it with the Grade 3/4 class today – magical.

So much fun reading this with the Grade one’s today. This is a great book about rising above your circumstances when things don’t turn out exactly like you hoped!
