Cameron 12/6

Though it was our final week with the bright students at Cameron Middle School, we had an absolute blast! In between handing out special wrist bands, stickers, and pencils, we were able to have a lot of fun and learn together, before the Holidays! First, we had to finish up Skeleton Creek, which meant watching the final, terrifying video. The students, through closed fingers, grew more and more scared, hoping for some resolution that never came. They hoped to read the next two in the series, and we hope they'll be able to get a copy!

 

Next, the students had the chance to look forward along those lines. How would they resolve the issues at the end of the book? How would they continue the story, knowing that they had two more books to fill out! We were impressed by our students' creative abilities, as always, and we can't wait to hang them up in Wyatt!


Finally, we had the students write why they loved reading, or why reading has become more important to them. We were amazed at how much students had seemed to enjoy reading more than when we had meet, and how much their English had improved! The students' answers impacted us, perhaps more than anything else this semester, and we can't wait to be back to hand out their most recent book orders!


We want to wish everyone in the Cameron community a happy Holiday Season, and we hope to see them next semester!
