Book of the Month
In our quest to build our students’ vocabulary and academic language, we are continuing our tradition of all classrooms reading the same book each month. Our book-of-the month for February is Dream Big: Michael Jordan and the Pursuit of Excellence, written by Dolores Jordan (mother of NBA superstar Michael Jordan) and illustrated by Barry Root. Before Michael Jordan was a record-breaking athlete, he was a young boy who dreamed of playing basketball for the United States Olympic team. His mother tells him, “Dreaming is for dreams. If you want to play, you better get busy.” So what did Michael do? He got busy! Discover how Michael made his wish into a reality—Olympic gold medal included—in this motivational book for anyone with big dreams!
