For the Kingdom 4/5 Book Club hard at work making diorama scenes from RJ’s Journey.
I have been reading RJ’s Journey to the class. In her journals she has been on the Oregon Trail for nearly six weeks and was recently on a several day break at Fort Kearney in Nebraska Territory. The students are good listeners when I read. I pause at some words to find out if they can define them. I ask comprehension questions from time to time and am pleased to confirm they have been following the story. They are making the dioramas and we have a huge map where we are marking her progress and thus studying geography at the same time.
Ardie’s Books will have a booth at the Midwest Parent Educator’s Conference again this year in KC the first weekend in April. The RJ series and all my other books will be for sale at the conference.
