Christmas break is over and it is back to school today for some PDC training. Our break went fast, but I did get to get some reading in. Over break I read 77 books with 52 being picture books; 17 being early chapter books; and 8 being middle/high school books. Some of my favoites were:
My 4th, 5th, and 6th graders have given me a list of books that I should read and I read several of them over break. I read several Hank Zipper books, Dork Diaries, Magic Treehouse Books, My Teacher Glows in the Dark, etc. Many times when these books come in and I get ready to read them, the students ask for them so I always give them to them and do not get them read. My goal is to read the books they suggest so that we can talk about them even more.
I am currently reading I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson. I can’t wait to finish it and then give it to one of my students so that we can talk about the book.
