Why isn’t the Skeleton Creek series on audio book? I read it to my 5th graders every year and it would be so nice to have an audio edition.
Do you ever do Skype with groups of students? Our 7th grade intensive reading teacher, Jodi Casale, has gotten her students very interested in reading via the Skeleton Creek books. I am Meg Newman, the media specialist and would like to coordinate this. Thank you so much!
Is there a study guide to go along with the book “The Dark Hills Divide”? We are looking for a new fantasy novel study for our fourth graders and this would be a great book to use.
Looking forward to seeing you at Stevens Middle School. I’m so glad you can make it! My students are so excited!
I have a class that read your book a we would love to meet with you via Skype. The students are currently working a on a video for the first book. Please let us know it would be possible to Skype in the next month or two. Thanks
Our 8th grade reading classroom is doing a very cool investigative project in conjunction with reading Skeleton Creek. I think it would be wonderful if you included a place on your website for teachers to submit their lesson plans and ideas for using your books in their classrooms. I know I’d have something to share!
I agree with kimberly!! I am a 8th grade teacher as well and have looped with my students. We have read Skeleton Creek, Ghost in the Machine, Crossbones, and moving onto Raven. I would love to share lesson ideas!!!
I would love to share teaching ideas regarding the books!
I would love to start sharing as well. Should we start here???
My Seattle friend Ellen Finn has been living in Honduras since 2007 because she fell in love with the Hondurenas and wanted to establish a link between her own American resources and the teachers, students and parents in the impoverished mountain schools around Copan Ruinas, where she lives. You can see some of her successes at her website shown above. But books in Spanish have been terribly difficult to come by. Most of the schools have very few or no books. The teachers manage with unimaginably few supplies of any kind. I’m wondering if you might help. Are you still involved in providing books to Central American children? Many thanks in advance.
That would be cool if you turned them into movies! ...
Love these books! :) please make more Patrick Carman!!!? ...
i love how you observed age. ...
