Novel Study Holes by Louis Sachar

We have started reading the novel Holes by Louis Sachar. We will be focusing on character development and plot throughout this novel. We also will cover setting to help keep track of the time shifting elements. This is one of my favorite books to teach and I am really looking forward to the next few weeks.

We will be posting information about the story on our blog A Novel Approach to Reading.

Reading Holes will be a great opportunity to teach many life lessons about consequences of actions.

Happy New Year! I have tagged you and/or your class to join me in special meme among our Professional Learning Network.

"To maintain engagement with creative forms of self-expression throughout adult life", I hope you will join me by: A) writing a "7 Things You Don't Need to Know About Me" post and B) tagging 7 other people in your PLN by listing them at the bottom of your post.
