  1. I would be interested in hearing about your Holocaust/WWII book clubs. I teach a Holocaust unit to 8th grade using Night by Elie Wiesel and am planning to do a lit circle unit in 7th grade using Milkweed, The Coming Evil, The Yellow Star, and The Boy Who Dared.

  2. I am curious about your best answer hamburger and what you are suggesting your students include and how they should approach the explanatory writing prompt. If you have a chance, I would love to hear about it. Thanks in advance.

  3. Do you make a list for every day? I am a list maker as well and then I get behind on making my lists-that is when life is really crazy!!
