Give your child more than just another fictional story or a Harry Potter story. Here is a book by Christopher Conroy that will empower your child. Anzard, is the best gift that you could give your child and impress them.
Although using these books in the classroom is very controversial, I am a big supporter of non-censorship when it comes to what children are allowed to read. I think the Harry Potter series is excellent because it allows readers to enter a different world in which magic exists. I think that is very important for children to be exposed to imaginative, fantastical literature because it turns reading into something wonderful, mysterious, and magical. That kind of attitude toward reading can make or break a child's educational experiences. That being said, I would definitely make sure that having these books in my classroom was compliant with school policies and make parents aware that they were in my classroom. I would keep these in my classroom library in grades 5 and 6, but I would not necessarily use them in teaching lessons.
I am SO excited about this week's top 5 Wednesday topic! I don't know about you, but any time that I read a book, I cast it in my head, haha. I'm 100% serious. And then when the actual cast doesn't match up, I get really upset! But here are my very favorite portrayals. Read on to see!
I missed out on the last two Top 5 Wednesdays, so this is a catch up post! I missed last week's because I was in Florida and didn't bring my laptop, and I missed this week's because I just had a crazy day yesterday. But it's okay because I'm making up for it now! Read on to see my Top 5 Siblings and Top 5 Fictional Technologies.
