Really good story about at third grade class written in free verse novel format Cheng also includes her own art what looks like woodcuts to illustrate the story At first I thought the format would be confusing for 3 5th grade but the individual poems are grounded in a child s life This would be a fantastic read aloud with a thirdfourth grade where you could stop and create a character map for the story Set in inner city Cincinnati Ohio with a predominant African American culture The students in the school are dealing with the fact their school is going to be torn down before the next year Also the students experience discrimination at a theater performance This is based on a real third grade class I think the issues are easily fourth grade too

Where the Steps Were

free read Where the Steps Were ð PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Andrea Cheng ´ 6 read Class with Miss D gives the students at Pleasant Hill Elementary the confidence they need to move on to their new school The third graders are sad that this will be their last year at Pleasant Hill Elementary before their school is torn down Poems narrated in the voices of five different student. I did not find this book emotionally engrossing It seems to me that those poems do not amount to poetry I had a hard time identifying different children by their voices only by what s happening in their lives and also by the identifier of names attached to each entryIf this was supposed to be a verse novel it did not uite contain much of an arc except for the advancement of time Nor does it contain a true conclusionIf this was supposed to be a tribute to an extraordinary teacher to this group of elementary students I failed to see how the teacher is exceptional and or how the children grow and know each other at the end of the year with the help of this teacherThe atmosphere presented feels not like a 2006 class of 3rd graders like distant echoes from decades ago

Interesting formata series of poems written from the POV of 3rd graders in a school that is about to be closed down The students come from difficult circumstances but they have an amazing teacher It is a fast read and enjoyable and sad and hopeful It left me with uestionswhy is the school being torn downit sounds as if it may be because the building is old and needs to be replaced yet the students are very upset by the need to go to another school the next year Will they have to be bussed to this new school Is the closing of the old school about test scores and so called poor performance rather than the need for a new building It was interesting to note that the author wrote this based on her younger sister and classmates experiences
