In my book club, we finished the book Frindle today. It's a book about curiosity and "out with the old in with the new". We got to examine how the characters changed with the events of the book. We also learned how characters can have hidden agendas and how authors use foreshadowing and character traits to give us hints along the way. Ask us about the book tonight!
We also practice responding to reading using the following acronym. This is hard stuff, but we're becoming better writers and deeper thinkers in the process.
