I couldn't possibly wait any longer for "Mockingjay". Starting to think it's probably a bit old for my grade 6/7 class. But I enjoy it and that's enough justification for me :)
"Lost in the Barrens" sounds like it will pair really nicely with the grade 6 First Nations unit. Eew...I talk about lesson planning the way people talk about wine and food.
Alan Bradley's latest made me break my no hardcover rule (yikes, I've been breaking that rule a lot lately).
After reading Mama's comments I decided to check out the fantastic T.S. Spivet.
