“I opened a book and in I strode.
Now nobody can find me.
I’ve left my chair, my house, my road,
My town and my world behind me.
I’m wearing the cloak, I’ve slipped on the ring,
I’ve swallowed the magic potion.
I’ve fought with a dragon, dined with a king
And dived in a bottomless ocean.
I opened a book and made some friends.
I shared their tears and laughter
And followed their road with its bumps and bends
To the happily ever after.
I finished my book and out I came.
The cloak can no longer hide me.
My chair and my house are just the same,
But I have a book inside me.”
-Julia Donaldson

I am opening ordering for scholastic book clubs.  If you want to order books please  use the following link and enter the teacher code before ordering.  Please make sure it says my name: Ms. Brancato and IS 2 as well this way we know it will be shipped to the correct place.  If you are placing an order there is a code to receive a free book, up to a $5.00 value I believe.  The code is READS.  Remember, every purchase you make goes to enhancing our classroom library, so we appreciated it greatly!  


Thanks again! 

Ms. Brancato 






Teacher code:  MPBXX

Some students still do not have a folder for their ELA portfolio.  Please remember to bring one in on Monday if you do not have one in class.  

Please be advised, by 11/27 each student must have a new ELA notebook to be left in the classroom.  We will be using this notebook for a journal during independent reading/writing periods.  Thank you!
