I just received an ARC of The Fourth Stall, Part III
by Chris Rylander.
Good news, right?
BUT....which student to hand it to first?
I decided to have students blog about the book.
Here's what I did:
IF a student wanted a chance to read the book first, then he or she had to tell me why they wanted this opportunity and what they liked about the books. THEN, I took the students that blogged about it and had the Principal draw a random name out of a hat.
These pining students penned their reasons.
At 2:45 pm, I put The Fourth Stall, Part III in Justin's hand.
I have many students reading this series right now, but these students were recognized as the true fans of the fifth grade. In a demonstration of the sense of community, I had students saying, "_____ should get it because he/she really loves the series."
