SPIN CAM of what JFB 2 is reading now (thanks to David Etkin for introducing me to Spin Cam):
Another student loved The Underland Chronicles and just finished the series. She kept me updated on the emotional highs and lows of this series. It consists of 5 books and 1,733 pages. Of course, the Gregor books are a much more appropriate Suzanne Collins choice for 4th graders than the Hunger Games series, so when one of my students wants to read that series, I direct them toward this one. She was so sad to finish the last one. She's going to try out Redwall next.

The other exciting thing going on in my classes is that kids are starting to meet the 40 Book Invitation (Donalyn Miller) already! I love when a student stands up in the middle of silent reading, holds a book up high, and says "I just finished my 40th book!" Books read this quarter by 43 students: 482
