J really enjoyed this book and simply couldn’t put it down.
For her, she felt that this was one of those books where you really felt like you were a part of the story.
This is a great book to get kids thinking about ethics.
Additionally, it also highlights the fact that you can’t judge a book, or person, by it’s cover and that we don’t know what others are going through.
Approximate Running Time: 1 hour and 15 minutes with one intermission.
My reasons for choosing The Homework Machine include: And as I mentioned before, Dan Gutman is a prolific author, as well as a diverse one.
What if you had a machine that could do all of your homework for you? When the geek, Brenton, accidentally tells Sam about his machine, it sets the ball in motion for an adventure in ethics and self-discovery.
The foursome is made up of a geek, a class clown, a teacher’s pet and a slacker.
In my last post I mentioned that I’m providing some ELA enrichment for a small group of third graders, and I was trying to decide which of the novel sets that our school has purchased I should use with the group.
Not only is there a sequel to this book (The Return of the Homework Machine) but he’s written the My Weird School series, the Baseball Card Adventures series, the Genius Files series, and the Flashback Four series, among others.
