We finished The Cay today. Since it’s the first time I read the book with third graders (and since it’s so intense), I decided to ask them to answer two questions for my own benefit.
1. Rate the book on a scale of 1-5 stars (5 best).
2. Would you recommend this book to future Peabody third graders?
Here were the responses:
8 students ranked the book at 5 stars,
4 kids gave it 4 1/2 stars
3 gave it 3 stars.
Nobody ranked it lower than a 3.
100% recommended it to other students.
