This week, we're celebrating fall by reading some spooky stories, as well as some books about the changing of the seasons.
Third Grade is listening to The Monsters' Monster by Patrick McDonnell. Grouch, Grump, and Gloom 'n Doom decide to create the ultimate monster, but instead of terrorizing the nearby town, their creation has some other ideas in mind.
Fourth Grade is listening to some mysterious tales by Chris VanAllsburg. In The Stranger, the Bailey family encounters a strange visitor who can't remember who he is. In The Widow's Broom, a witch leaves behind her old broom that hasn't quite spent all of its magic.
Fifth Grade is listening to a book talk about Wait Till Helen Comes by Mary Downing Hahn. Molly can't seem to make a connection with her new stepsister, Heather. Things get even stranger when Heather makes a discovery in the cemetery near their new home.
