As we began our Maybelle book study, the kids got a special treat. Each night they got to take Maybelle home with them. Maybelle is a plastic cockroach sporting a pink bow. Maybelle had many adventures each evening in the homes of the kids. She played soccer, watched TV, helped with homework, played scrabble on an iPhone, and used a computer. The students kept a journal and the next day at school shared their adventures with Maybelle with the class.
