Read Aloud

Because YouTube has been glitching a lot lately, I’m also posting Outdoor Dude chapters in Classwork. If you can’t access either one, let me know.  Also, don’t be afraid to tell me if the story gets boring, if it doesn’t sound like a kid talking, or if it seems “off.” Thanks!

Here’s the sequel to How Tom Beat Captain Najork. It’s called A Near Thing for Captain Najork. After the Captain gets himself in a bit of a fix, Aunt Fidget Wonkham Strong must arm wrestle the headmistress of the girls’ boarding school for his affections. Fun!

Here’s one of my favorite picture books: How Tom Beat Captain Najork and his Hired Sportsmen. It’s a crazy story about a kid who likes to fool around.

In honor of Wild West Week, here’s Saving Sweetness by Diane Stanley, one of my all-time favorite picture books. It’s about a runaway orphan and the sheriff who done “saved” her. And here is the sequel, Raising Sweetness, which is about how Sweetness finds the sheriff a wife.

Leghorn, by Watt Key–Wally was happy to have a new rooster in the yard, until he became convinced the rooster wanted to kill him.

We read Ronald Kidd’s book about a kid who discovers a secret room where Edgar Allan Poe stories seem to come alive. Turn off your “auto play” tab in Youtube before listening. Thanks!
