It’s Monday! What are you reading?
I have been sharing a reading photo of the week each week. This photo was taken during my book club meeting on Thursday at lunch. We had a visitor from a Grade 1 student who decided to read a picture book to the group. He started with Sam and Dave Dig a Hole and then moved onto Todd Parr books. He had a captive audience who loved it! We watched the magic of picture books delight students of all ages 🙂
Join Jen from Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee and Ricki from Unleashing Readers and share all of the reading you have done over the week from picture books to young adult novels. Follow the links to read about all of the amazing books the #IMWAYR community has read. It’s the best way to discover what to read next.
This has been a busy Sunday and I have only a few moments to share some of my reading for the past week. So I am just sharing a quick selection of titles I have read: an early picture book, a nonfiction title, an early chapter book and a novel.
What’s Your Sound HOUND the HOUND? by Mo Willems
I love these simple picture books for beginning readers. They are perfect for our buddy reading collection.
Trapped! A Whale’s Rescue written by Robert Burleigh and illustrated by Wendell Minor
This was our Friday p.m. read aloud. A beautiful, lyrical story with stunning paintings by Wendell Minor. Students appreciated the happy outcome and the detailed back matter for additional information. We just did art pieces featuring humpback whales so students are feeling particularly connected.
The Life of TY Penguin Problems by Lauren Myracle
Love this chapter book series! The cat under the bed, full bladder, Dustbuster scene is hilarious!
The Truth about Twinkie Pie by Kat Yeh
This is some book. Emotional. Meaningful. Centred on family and truths and lots of sugar.
Up next? I am reading Watch the Sky by Kirsten Hubbard and have started Jack by Liesl Shurtliff as a classroom read aloud!
