Our literary whimsical fantasy in class is traveling to student homes via book bags. One of our favorite class books, The Meanies (Joy Cowley), is making the rounds complete with reading wand and a handpicked troll character. The kids are convinced that the 'Meanie' characters are trolls- and what could be more fun than a visiting troll at your house hearing a story about himself/herself? It's fun for me to see how excited the students are when it's their turn to share a book (and a bag) with their family, and a double thrill for me when I know they're extending their learning at home.
