Andrea Cheng Õ 3 summary

Class with Miss D gives the students at Pleasant Hill Elementary the confidence they need to move on to their new school The third graders are sad that this will be their last year at Pleasant Hill Elementary before their school is torn down Poems narrated in the voices of five different student I did not find this book emotionally engrossing It seems to me that those poems do not amount to poetry I had a hard time identifying different children by their voices only by what s happening in their lives and also by the identifier of names attached to each entryIf this was supposed to be a verse novel it did not uite contain much of an arc except for the advancement of time Nor does it contain a true conclusionIf this was supposed to be a tribute to an extraordinary teacher to this group of elementary students I failed to see how the teacher is exceptional and or how the children grow and know each other at the end of the year with the help of this teacherThe atmosphere presented feels not like a 2006 class of 3rd graders like distant echoes from decades ago

    I loved it It's a whole year of third grade full of friendships hurts prejudices dreams distilled in the children's poems I found myself in tears toward the end I know some other reviewers mention not liking that lack of any conclusions to the problems presented but few of the problems can be solved in a year's time It's
