What a lovely, lovely day in Saskatchewan! What an amazing difference a little sunshine can make. I enjoyed a walk around our downtown today. I should do that more often- I like being amongst the constant intersecting of all kinds of people- sometimes, anyway! I guess that's a good thing seeing I am moving to Hong Kong! Sheesh. Sometimes I also wonder if I am crazy to leave good ol' Regina for the madness of that mass of concrete and people!
Anyway, the certain indicator that spring has sprung in Regina is that driving down Victoria Ave. today, I saw a long line of ice cream hungry folks at the legandary Milky Way. Wooohooo! Now we just need the tennis nets up and we'll be flying!
I followed my brother to the library today. Being much younger in age, I strayed away from the large print section and headed for juvenile fiction. :) I'm starting to read novels as I start brainstorming for my Gr. 5's in the fall (which means I'm putting off the pile of Gr. 9/10 marking I have right now! Eeeek!). Here's what I picked up:
Number the Stars by Lois Lowry
Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
Everest by Gordan Korman
Wayside School is Falling Down by Louis Sachar
James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl
Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
Tunnels of Time by Mary Harelkin Bishop
Have any other suggestions of great books I could read, or study, with a group of Gr. 5 kids?
