Sending you a big "hello" and a 'thanks for sharing' message as well! I've been visiting your blog quite often today, getting ideas and re-reading. It feels like it is -4 degrees and snow on top of snow...buried in here! Hope you are enjoying your summer!!
Your friend in Michigan!
Thanks for leaving a message! Always fun to find comments from you here Tracy.
I don't envy you with all that snow Tracy! But must say your photos are really interesting for us in no-snow ville.
We're enjoying summer - but as you'll appreciate being back to learning can be a little hard to knuckle down to when the days are lovely and summery outside ;)
While re-reading this post, I saw that the 'essay questions' for The Prince and the Pauper were from Cliff Notes---what a great idea! I never thought to look there for discussion questions! I've bought some little books with questions on some readers before, and am always aghast at the cost...good to have another link to try for commentary on the books we are reading.
Always happy to onshare links n lists.
& yes! The cost of literature guides/questions can get very costly. I'm always on the look out for 'freely given' literary helps.
