Required for parent to purchase: You may purchase Magic Tree House books (Mr. K's is a great option), check them out from the library, or listen on Audiobooks. Your child will also need a 3-ring binder dedicated solely to their Magic Tree House work. They will need to bring it to class each week so they can add new work.

Course Description: There will be a good bit of writing in class, so students need to be able to copy words and sentences from the board. Basic reading skills are required.
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 book 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 or no outside work will be expected.
