Current Novels We are Reading in Class!
Current Read-Aloud Book
Our class read the wonderful novel, Wonder, by R.J. Palacio. It is quite amazing! If you look under the 'Booklist' tab (on the left side of my teacher webpage), you will find some more information about it. Please ask you children questions about what is happening in our book. If you have any questions, as always, please let me know! :) Mrs. Lamperski
