About a month ago, while waiting for my 9 year old at the local library, I decided to check out Gooney Bird Greene by Lois Lowry. The story is set in a second grade classroom so I assumed it would not be something I could use in 4th grade, but felt it might be a good read for some of my lower level students. BOY WAS I WRONG! I am now planning on using this book as a read aloud to launch Writer's Workshop this fall.
I purchased the book for my E-Reader. I hope that I can read parts of the book as a read aloud and project parts onto my Promethean board so they can read with me. I have never used an E-Reader in this way so I'll let you know you it turns out.
