Girls' Book Club Off to a Great Start!

Last Thursday, the 4th-5th grade girls kicked off our weekly book club. We are reading "Money Hungry" by Sharon Flake. This entertaining novel is about a girl named Raspberry who is obsessed with making money...but how much will she risk to make and save a dollar? Already the book has brought us lots of laughs and we are looking forward to chapter 5 next week.

Today after we read chapters 3 and 4, the girls answered a reading response question and then typed their response into "Tagxedo" to create word clouds. Here are some of their very creative products:

Amaya

Aneja

Diamond

Hayzul

Karina

Ladaysha

Niesha


Stay tuned for what happens with Raspberry next week!
