We've been reading The Call of the Wild to go along with The Big Read happening on MDI and the surrounding islands, so we celebrated by watching White Fang, since there's not a recent kid-friendly version of Call of the Wild. All the kids from 3rd grade up have been reading the book for the past three weeks. They read silently, then partner read, and I reread it aloud to make sure the vocabulary and dialects are understood. We just finished the part when Buck and Spitz fight, so we were holding our breaths, but when Buck came out on top, Myron and Brody turned to each other, exclaimed, "YES!" and then high-fived.
