63. Miss Malarkey Doesn’t Live in Room 10 by Judy Finchler

My Thoughts: Several weeks ago Colleen Cruz conducted a workshop on interactive read aloud at our school. In addition to doing interactive read aloud each day she suggests that we also tuck in moments when we read aloud books that are just plain fun. Miss Malarkey Doesn’t Live in Room 10 is one of those ‘just for fun’ books. I wonder how many of my students actually believe that I live in an apartment and not in my classroom? I plan on reading this aloud sometime during the first week of school. Perhaps I can use ‘just for fun’ read alouds as an incentive to get students to the rug faster.
