August 21- August 25
In this week's humorous fiction selection, A Package for Mrs. Jewls, we'll read about a school where the students and teachers are unusual and the teaching methods are even stranger! Still, Mrs. Jewl's class learns an unexpected lesson. We'll answer the question "What funny events lead Louis to Mrs. Jewls's classroom?" We will also start a novel by Kimberly Willis Holt, My Louisiana Sky.
