Reading: We finished our read aloud, Out of My Mind, by Susan Draper. Melody, the main character, is a 5th grade girl who shares her experiences of living with cerebral palsy. At first, she is unable to communicate. Then, finally, the world finds out how brilliant she is when she is finally able to speak with new technologies. An excellent story for all ages. We've also begun reading The Witch of Blackbird Pond, a classic story about colonial New England.
