Anyone who has read Coraline by Neil Gaiman has probably been wondering when someone would make a movie version. Well, I just read on Mr. Gaiman's site that the movie should be coming to theaters in about a year. Click on the link below to see a short clip.

The kids have been working on putting together a Voicethread presentation to celebrate the Newbery books they read over Thanksgiving break. Each student was responsible for reading a different Newbery Award winner and doing some research on the author. In addition, kids were instructed to keep a log of powerful language (similes and metaphors) that helped "paint a picture" in their minds as they read. Using this figurative language as inspiration, the kids are now working on creating an illustration that represents a chosen simile or metaphor.
To view the project under construction, click here. Check back often, as the presentation will continue to be updated as more kids complete their pages.
