    ENGLISH/LANGUAGE ARTS (ELA)

    Our current read aloud is Among the Hidden by Maragret Peterson Haddix. It is the first novel in The Shadow Children series. 

    We started our first class novel study, Night of the Spadefoot Toads, by Bill Harley. The 5th graders are working on an expository research report on a geographic region of the world, just like the class did in the novel. The kids chose the regions they wanted to learn about.
