The first week of school Mckell Murdock's third-grade class did an author study on Tyler Whitesides the author of the book Janitors. We started reading his book Janitors as a class read-a-loud.  Janitors is about a young boy, Spencer, who finds out his school is full of magical creatures (toxites) that inhibit the childrens' learning. Miss Murdock's class is really liking this book so far!
