I was able to get into my school building this week to set up my classroom and started inservice days on Wednesday. My reading has drastically slowed down and will be that way for a while as I work to get the year off to a good start. This week much of the reading I did was rereading parts of professional books that had ideas that I want to use this year. I always start with some ideas from Nancy Atwell so spend some time rereading parts of In the Middle. I also went back to The Cafe Book and So What do They Really Know? for ideas about assessment in reading.
Books I Finished:
Books I am Currently Reading:
The Daughter of Smoke and Bone -- I am slowly but surely making my way through this audiobook. I like the story and enjoy the recording.
10 Things Every Writer Needs to Know by Jeff Anderson--This book is going to be so helpful this year with writing lessons and it takes me so long to read because I am so full of ideas while reading.
Shadow by Jenny Moss-- I just started this one and like it so far.
