“It’s Monday! What are you Reading?” is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. It is a chance for book lovers to share their reading accomplishments as well as what is on the proverbial nightstand. She even does a giveaway. Subsequently Jen and Kellee at Teach Mentor Texts added an opportunity for those reading kidlit to join the fun. Since I read both I will post to both. Check them out, join the conversations, and discover more great books.
Here is what I have read in the past month.
An * indicates my ‘must own’ list, either for myself or my classroom library.
Planting Dandelions by Kyran Pittman
The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann
*Poison Study by Maria V. Snider
The start of a series. I am anxious to read the next two.
The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards
*Everyday Editing by Jeff Anderson
I am looking forward to incorporating these ideas into my classroom this year.
Inside the Kingdom by Carmen Bin Ladin
iWrite: Using Blogs, Wikis, and Digital Stories in the English Classroom by Dana J. Wilbur
*The Digital Writing Workshop by Tony Hicks
This book gave me ideas, sites, and things to ponder for my classroom this year.
