It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys where you can recap what you’ve read this week while planning ahead on what to read next! Jen and Kellee at Teach Mentor Texts added their own twist by focusing on kidlit, from picture books up to YA.
Clicking the covers will take you to the Goodreads page for that book, where you can add it to your “To Read” list!
Last week I read:
Last week was my first week with students for the 2012-2013 school year! Everything went smoothly, and I can’t wait to get see what happens this year!
I read this with my students last week, then we came up with pre-writing ideas to go with 4 different prompts (write a story about: (1) the consequences of being sneaky; (2) the importance of family; (3) helping a friend in need; (4) spending time with loved ones.)
Now that I have driving time without the kids, I fiiiiiiinally finished this audio book. The narrator drove me nuts. Very choppy “reading.” I wish that I had read the book rather than listening to the audio, but I still can’t wait to read book 2! If anyone else has listened to this, I would love to know what you thought!
This week I’ll start/continue reading:
My oldest son checked out some Lunch Lady from the library, so I’m reading them as he finishes. I went to the bookstore to pick up Drama by Raina, but they were all out, so I picked up Smile instead! I’ve heard nothing but good things, and I can’t wait to read this.
I have been reading this book throughout the summer, and it is so fabulous! I have been wanting to teach through genre studies, and this book has been perfect for setting a plan/template for me to follow.
