Students must have access to Magic Tree house books outside of class either by buying them or borrowing from the library. It will be your responsibility to have each book when it is covered. Books are a magical portal to other places. When you read, you are transported to other places and meet many new and exotic friends. Let’s join Jack and Annie as they travel through time and space to many enchanting places with the help of the Magic Tree house! We will use the Magic Tree house series as a jumping off point to learn about different cultures, countries, time periods and animals. There will be a little history, science, social studies, geography and art incorporated in the studies. Little to no outside work, except reading will be expected. Occasionally a project may be sent home for completion.
