bookshelves: middle-grades

Mr. Terupt is a new 5th grade teacher at school. The book is told through the eyes of seven students and then events that take place in their classroom. Like all classrooms, this class has the female bully, the overweight child, the athlete, the move-in, and some that are quiet.

Mr. Terupt holds meetings to find out more about the students, asks the students to find dollar words that follow a value for each letter to equal a dollar and makes the students realize how important each and everyone one of them means to him.

There is also the outside of school stories that the reader learns to love and follow as the book moves forward. As a teacher, I felt myself connecting to students in my classroom and myself as I plowed through this book.

Happy Reading,

Mr. Wittmer
