This week we began the pre-reading activities for one of my favorite books to teach from: Number the Stars by Lois Lowry. I haven't taught from this book in several years because I had a few years where most of the class had already read the book. Alternatively, I taught from The Giver instead.
I cannot express just how excited I am to get their hands, minds, and hearts intertwined with the characters and storyline and I hope that they love it just as much as I do!
What's your favorite book to teach from?
