The book ends with Jessie and Evan watching fireworks with their mom. At the very end, Evan whispers to Jessie that he has an idea on how to get the money back. I guess you will have to read the next book in the series, The Lemonade Crime, to find out.
Students, thank you so much for your excitement and participation. I hope you enjoyed this book. Teachers, thank you for helping students to make connections to this book during your instruction in literacy and math. Parents, I appreciate your support so very much. I know schedules are busy, but I hope you enjoyed carving out this special time to read as a family. Kindergarten parents, this may have been the first time that your child was read a chapter book like this. I am sure it was challenging at times, but I hope you saw the growth of your child over the course of the book, and I appreciate your willingness to engage your child in this process. I hope you found it worthwhile.
I am SO excited to meet Jacqueline Davies next week! She will be at F.N. Brown on Thursday, February 20th, and Brookdale, with Forest, on Friday, February 21st.
Thank you again, everyone, and I would appreciate any feedback that you may have. Feel free to email me at CWalker@veronaschools.org
