Because we are working on these projects as we read, we will spend quite a bit of time on this set of books. This is the first time I assigned the end projects as we are reading the book. So far, I really like doing it this way. The kids are super excited about their projects and they are reading carefully to get the information they need.
I am off to check out what everyone else will be up to this week.
Thank you, Jennifer for hosting this linky. I always enjoy seeing what everyone has planned.
Have a great week!
