Levi got an assignment for a book report that they read together as a class. He had to get direct quotes from the book, and do a character report, a fake conference sheet, character quilt, about the author sheet, and many other things. The assignment was given last Friday. He started it Sunday night. Oh, and did I mention he forgot to bring the BOOK home? So, Monday morning as he was walking out the door, I reminded him to bring the book home with him. This whole thing is due today. Monday afternoon he strolls in, has his usual snack, and around 4:45 he tells me he forgot the book. Needless to say I didn't handle it too well. I mean, the book is The Sign Of The Beaver. I have NEVER read it. All I can say is thank goodness for the internet. After reading the chapter summaries, I had a grasp on the characters and the story line. We even got DIRECT QUOTES off of a ladies blog who was ranting and raving about how Indians were misrepresented in the book. One question needed a passage that was difficult and a page number. Google to the rescue. Thankfully this book is pretty popular had won some awards or he would have been up you-know-what-creek without a paddle. Long story short.... we got it done. Boys! They NEVER cease to amaze me.
