  1. I am so excited! This is such a popular series in my classroom. Now I need to think of a fun way to celebrate this exciting day. Hmmm? Thank you for sharing.

  2. I haven't read many, but will be reading more of these kinds of books because I'm learning about the 'younger' students' loves, & I know this is one of them. I listened to the first & loved when they finally figured out they liked each other. This 'take a chance on someone' is what I have discussed in the past with my middle school students too. If they don't get to know someone, think what they might be missing! I'll look for more!
