We’ve begun reading a new book together in class, The Secret Zoo, by Bryan Chick. This story has an exciting beginning that’s not to be missed! This VoiceThread is for our Techie Kid who was out of school last week. You are welcome to listen in on the beginning of our adventure, too!

The Invention of Hugo Cabret

We have begun reading a new novel, “The Invention of Hugo Cabret.” This book is unique to others we’ve read because it is a graphic novel. That means that, out of the 544 pages, about 300 are illustrations. We are intrigued by the mysterious beginning.
