    Either Rules by Cynthia Lord (most likely) or Extra Credit by Andrew Clements. First may be a short book I wrote quite some time ago, though, called The Frightening, Dark, and Shaky First Day of Fourth Grade. I haven't read that book on the first day since my third year, and now I am in my eighth year!

    I think I will read Ramona and her Father, since that book is about her 2nd grade year.

    Even though I wish I could get away with reading The Hunger Games, I am probably going to go with Among the Hidden.

    Why do you read that book? Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing? I haven't read it. Do you start on the very first day?

    Well, I won't be reading Junie B., since I'll be teaching 3rd grade! Now I have to find something new! Any suggestions?
