Currently, Mrs. Yollis' third graders are reading
Ramona Quimby, Age 8
by the wonderful, well-known author, Beverly Cleary.
We have just finished reading hilarious Chapter 3, "The Hard-Boiled Egg Fad!"
In this chapter, Ramona and all her third grade buddies are having fun with the latest fad: packing a hard-boiled egg in their lunches each day. The fad isn't just about eating a hard-boiled egg, however! It's really all about cracking it on your head before you peel it!
Some of the kids use the timid "rap-rap-rap" method. Others, like Ramona, like to show-off with one big "whack" to the head!
The fad is not so much fun anymore for Ramona, when she finds that the egg she thought was hard-boiled was really raw! Boy, how humiliating!
A fad is something that is very popular for a short time, and fads can be a lot of fun! Fads often involve fashion, an activity, or some kind of toy or trinket.
In your comment, tell us about a fad that you know about.
