Check out Mrs. Penn and I on YouTube!
Mrs. Penn and I thought that we would read another favorite book of ours, Maniac Magee. Below is a brief description of what this book is about. This is strickly an enrichment activity and there is no requirement to watch and participate everyday. We wanted to share this wonderful story with our students this year. My students last year loved this book and wanted nothing more than for me to keep reading this everyday.
Jeffery Lionel Magee aka “Maniac Magee” is an orphan whose parents died in a trolley accident when he was three. Without a home, he moves in with his aunt and uncle who dislike each other to the point of not communicating. While living with them, Maniac runs away during a school musical never to return.
