    Andrea,

    I think it would be wonderful to get students hooked on classics
    from an early age. I know that Douglas was hooked on TOM SAWYER
    because his third grade teacher read excerpts to him. Elementary
    teachers can lay a solid foundation for their children with excerpts
    from the classics.

    There are times when I feel as though I am helping my students dissect
    wonderful pieces of literature when we really should be enjoying them
    for the sake of their beauty. I try to have them analyze the vocabulary,
    characters, etc. Does anyone else ever feel like that?

    thanks,
    Jody
