Cracker! The Best Dog In Vietnam

August 25, 2015

It’s a new school year and a new beginning! 8th grade is up and running, and we have the first couple of weeks under our belts. We are connecting faces with names and getting back to the grind of regular classroom work while also trying to fit in some laughs and fun times. In Reading, we have already started our first novel – Cracker!: The Best Dog in Vietnam – and we have been learning about the history of war dogs in the United States. So far, we have read articles about U.S. war dogs, made pictures posters, and presented our posters to the class to teach everyone about the article. The book is also becoming quite good – sometimes it’s hard to stop reading when class is over! Hopefully as the new school year progresses, we will continue to encourage each other to learn. We’re off to a great start!
