It was one of those days.
My students were hard at work creating their Civil War newsletters from the perspective of a northern or southern journalist. They happily used our wiki lesson and pathfinders, but hundreds of relevant books on our shelves (and on the cart I dragged over) were going unused.
The fact is, for this particular research task, our books pretty much rocked. And so I found myself launching into impromtu little book puppet shows making specific lonely books talk to specific kids.
Check out the talking book in I’m Just a Book, starring Ben and Greg. And don’t miss the sweet dance interlude at the end.
