Various fiction and non-fiction books that relate to mountains



“‘I like the mountains because they make me feel small,’ Jeff says. ‘They help me sort out what’s important in life.’” – Mark Obmascik

“Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.” – John Muir

Language arts lesson

Acronyms are words formed with the first letters or syllables of words in phrases or titles. They are usually written in all capital letters. Here are some examples:

EPCOT: Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow

NASA: National Aeronautics and Space Administration

ROM: Random Access Memory

These fun ones are from Phineas and Ferb:

O.W.C.A.: Organization Without a Cool Acronym

L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N.: The League Of Villainous Evildoers Maniacally United For Frightening Investments in Naughtiness</
