East Hampton Patch readers, I need your advice.
I've been invited to read to fifth graders at the Montauk School during the kick-off of PARP — Parents As Reading Partners — a wonderful program that involves all different members of the community.
I'm so honored that Rachel Kleinberg, the school library media specialist, invited me to participate, again. Last year, I was assigned to an older grade, and on Ms. Kleinberg's suggestion, I read them some articles directly from East Hampton Patch.
This year, I am reading to fifth graders, and while, I'm going to tell them about Patch, I'd like to read them a little something that doesn't come from the site. As many of you know, I don't have children, and, let's face it, it's been quite a few years since I was in fifth grade, so I need some help.
Do you have a book, or even a specific chapter in a book, that you think the students will enjoy? Leave your comment below. I know I will greatly appreciate it!
