review Where the Steps Were

Where the Steps Were characters ↠ 7 Class with Miss D gives the students at Pleasant Hill Elementary the confidence they need to move on to their new school The third graders are sad that this will be their last year at Pleasant Hill Elementary before their school is torn down Poems narrated in the voices of five different student. I did not find this book emotionally engrossing It seems to me that those poems do not amount to poetry I had a hard time identifying different children by their voices only by what s happening in their lives and also by the identifier of names attached to each entryIf this was supposed to be a verse novel it did not uite contain much of an arc except for the advancement of time Nor does it contain a true conclusionIf this was supposed to be a tribute to an extraordinary teacher to this group of elementary students I failed to see how the teacher is exceptional and or how the children grow and know each other at the end of the year with the help of this teacherThe atmosphere presented feels not like a 2006 class of 3rd graders like distant echoes from decades ago

Where the Steps Were characters ↠ 7 S Dawn Kayla Jonathan Anthony and Carmen relate the events of their last year together with their teacher Miss D The year is busy as the students each facing a challenge at home prepare to put on a play take field trips to a local farm and do experiments in the science lab They are studying the. While the poems are beautiful I have conflicting opinions about this book It is written for ages 4 8 according to the listing The book is far too advanced for this age group in my mind I am in my 20s and I had a difficult time following the characters stories as there were five main characters and once I learned about a character I had to read four poems and then remember hisher story I felt that the way the poems were set up took away from the intimacy that I felt with each character and it didn t flow well for me I think an older age group could understand the poems but I doubt a child in the 10 12 age group would want to read about third graders as kids often like to read about characters that are eual in age or older

Interesting formata series of poems written from the POV of 3rd graders in a school that is about to be closed down The students come from difficult circumstances but they have an amazing teacher It is a fast read and enjoyable and sad and hopeful It left me with uestionswhy is the school being torn downit sounds as if it may be because the building is old and needs to be replaced yet the students are very upset by the need to go to another school the next year Will they have to be bussed to this new school Is the closing of the old school about test scores and so called poor performance rather than the need for a new building It was interesting to note that the author wrote this based on her younger sister and classmates experiences
