Synopsis: When their teacher has to go away for a week, the kids in Room 207 plan to "really act up."

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Make a mask of your favorite teacher, or of Viola Swamp or Miss Nelson.
•  If your teacher were gone for the day, and if you were the substitute, what would you teach? Make up a "lesson plan" for the day.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
