Love That Dog

We're headed into round two of our online book club. Our last effort, my first time trying a collaborative project with classes in different parts of the country, went pretty well. I soon discovered, though, that it's hard for teachers to find time for extra stuff, even if it is worthwhile.

Still, we're starting it up again with a new book, Love That Dog. The wiki we'll be using can be found here: Click the Love That Dog link and you're there!

Students will be writing a collection of poems to go along with the book. There's a place to post them on the wiki. There's also a discussion board for students to use to post comments about the story.

It's a short book, but a fun and touching one. I hope other classes are able to participate. I'll keep you updated on our progress.
