Well, we finished reading Out of My Mind today. We have been reading about 50 pages each week as part of the Global Read Aloud program. Wow! It seemed that in each chapter we had things to talk about. Sometimes we were in awe of Melody’s spirit and optimism. At other times we were outraged at the way people treated her and the unfair challenges she faced on a daily basis. This week we will begin reflecting on Melody’s story and Sharon Draper’s writing. One thing we want to do is find out more about Cerebral Palsy. Here is a video that I think explains it quite well.
Very soon we will be talking with a mom whose daughter seems very much like Melody. After our initial questions have been answered, we’d love to meet her daughter in person.
