One Day and One Amazing Morning on Orange Street by Joanne Rocklin: I'm reading this book aloud to my 4th and 5th grade students. We've read the first couple of chapters. The kids that live on Orange Street have a mysterious visitor. With the visitor, comes a sneak into the street's past. I'll let you know how it turns out, but it has begun well.
I just found BoomWriter today. This FREE online writing website encourages your child/students to write narratives. A celebrity writer starts a story, which is then collectively completed by young writers. This is a project of Citizen Schools, a non-profit that runs awesome programs at my husband's middle/high school. Check it out!
This was a lovely pin from the week. I love this poster:
We went to Little Farm in Berkeley last weekend. We checked out the farm animals (see rooster below), and took a walk to a pond (below). Even though my daughter was quite tired, we had a great morning.
It was my brother's birthday this weekend. His girlfriend had this awesome cake made for him (he's a huge Phillies fan)- I just had to show it off! We had a great time at my big bro's surprise party!
