The 5th grade has been eagerly preparing for Wendy Mass’s upcoming visit (this Friday) by finding information about her on the Internet and reading several of her books (some students got a head start on this last year, when the library was inundated with requests for 11 Birthdays). Today, students pooled their knowledge with teammates in a rousing, raucous, and reader-friendly game of Author Jeopardy. Although some scoring irregularities (cough – sorry!) made it unclear which team “won,” students had a blast, confidently and imaginatively posing questions to match our mysterious and not-so-mysterious answers.
Can’t wait ‘til Friday!
