It’s Monday! What are you reading?
Each week I share a reading photo of the week. This will be one of my last ones from my current school so I will share two!
Here are a bunch of writers writing thank you cards to donors who donated books to our school library. Writing about the books prompted much rereading.
I love this buddy reading photo with the little listener camped out in the box.
For our #classroombookaday, I have 3 weeks to share.
These titles “a boy and his bunny” etc. inspired many searches to figure out which book came first.
And some art pieces!
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.
Life has been busy, busy, busy. Applying and interviewing for jobs. Accepting a new job. Packing up. Writing reports. My husband down for the count with a bad bout of bronchitis. Not much impacts my reading life but for the last few weeks, it was put on hold. Yet, I have a few titles to share.
On the Blog:
Celebration: The new – I did get a job!
Celebration: Going with it Packing, boxes and perspective
Books I enjoyed:
Bear and Bunny written by Daniel Pinkwater and illustrated by Will Hillenbrand
I recommend this title just for the napping illustrations. Adorable.
There is a Tribe of Kids by Lane Smith
Dreamy. The illustrations here . . . it went instantly on to my Mock Caldecott 2017 list.
Fearless Flyer: Ruth Law and her Flying Machine by Heather Lang and illustrated by Raúl Colón
Stunning illustrations and such a story of Ruth Law and her dream to break flight records. She had vision, perseverance and talent. An amazing biography to share.
A fantastic story to talk about blended families. A great find at my library.
Summerlost by Ally Condie
Beautiful on so many levels. A story of grief, friendship and a transformative summer.
