Rain Reign by Ann M. Martin


I loved Rose Howard, the main character of Ann M. Martin's Rain Reign.  She is obsessed about homonyms as well as other things.  She named her dog Rain, a homonym.

One stormy night, Rain runs away, setting off a chain of events that changes everything.

Editable Beginning and Ending Routines

Here are the posters I have hanging in the front of my room with my beginning of the day and end of the day routines.  I teach my students these routines at the beginning of the year, but sometimes need to refer to them throughout the year.

Absolutely Almost by Lisa Graff


Albie has difficulty at school with learning and making friends.  Despite well-meaning teachers, he is bullied at school.  His parents and Korean grandfather put pressure on him to succeed. He makes friends with Betsy who is bullied as well.  

Absolutely Almost by Lisa Graff is a book I'm considering as a read aloud this year.  Although I teach gifted students, I believe they will have empathy for Albie.
