Hi HHCS! Just a reminder that I am running the Scholastic Book Club program for any classes in the school that aren’t already doing it through their homeroom class. Instructions are on Sycamore News. It’s a great program- affordable books for your family, and help to earn free books for our school library!
This week is the observance of Holocaust Remembrance Day. Here are some books on the topic for various age levels. Go to http://www.amightygirl.com/blog?p=11586
for a detailed list and description of many more books that help ensure we will never forget.
Last week I featured podcasts that are related to reading. This week’s list is on various other topics such as science, history, and current events.
But Why? – topics such as science, poetry, space, history, and civics
