What is Room 21 Reading?
The students in Room 21 have been enjoying the Chester book series written by Melanie Watt. It is a story told and retold by Melanie Watt and her large orange cat Chester. The students adore Chester’s creativity and confidence. We have recognized the strong voice of both authors, the humorous tone and subtle details. Some students have even included Chester in their own writing! We can be found reading Chester books during read aloud time, read to self and buddy reading. We are on the lookout for the final Chester book in the series called Chester’s Masterpiece!
