Today was big. We finished our latest read aloud, Frindle. Last time you heard about the book we didn't know what a Frindle was. Now we know it's a word that a fifth grade student, Nicholas Allen, made up to replace the boring word pen. At the end of the book (SPOILER ALERT) the word Frindle gets added to the dictionary as a real word. Pretty cool! If anyone can make up a word, maybe we can too. You may hear some new and exciting words at the dinner table in the next few days!
We've been learning to write book reviews lately and this book comes recommended with about a million stars. Talk to your kids about the books they read at home. Ask them if they liked them or disliked them. Ask them about their favorite part. Ask them if they would change anything if they were the author. Ask them if they would recommend the book to a friend.
