The 6th Graders have just started listening to the story Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper. We have only completed chapter 1, but can already sense the interest and excitement for hearing this story. We were supposed to be participating in the Global Read Aloud, but unfortunately, our schedule did not permit it. We will still read and enjoy the story .
The 6th graders know that the main character cannot speak. Why do you think she cannot talk? Leave a comment with your predictions and explain why you think that.
The 7th Graders have been listening to the story Freak the Mighty by Rodman Philbrick. The students have just heard that Maxwell’s father might be released from prison. What do you predict will happen? Explain why you think that.
