My class has their media lesson on Monday. Today, I went with them and was able to read to the class (even though I read to them every day in the classroom). I chose the book Little Tree’s Sideways Dreams by Jessie Huang. I had the opportunity to meet Jessie Huang while on the Germany trip with ASU this summer and she is fantastic. Since that trip, I have tried to focus on introducing the students to writers from other parts of the world. I always wanted Mrs. Yarbro to hear the story so she could decide if she wanted to add it to our library. I love reading to the class. I try to have discussion while we read; about characters, settings, vocabulary, etc. After I finished reading, I sit in on the rest of the media lesson.
