This weekly meme is hosted by the lovely ladies at Teach Mentor Texts. Head over there for more great ideas of kid literature and young adult books to add to your TBR.
Books I Read This Week:
HERE. I would highly recommend this one to grades 5 and up.
I cannot believe that this is my whole list. I think it has to do with the fact that the professional book really took some focused reading on my part. Also, there was another book I started to read but really didn't love it so I stopped. That doesn't happen often, but it does happen. I am just glad that I didn't buy that one. I might go back to it sometime, but probably not. There are too many other great books out there!
What I am Currently Reading:
I decided to read Teaching Literacy for LOVE and WISDOM: Being the BOOK and Being the CHANGE by Jeffrey Wilhelm and Bruce Novak because I was intrigued by Wilhelm's talk at WSRA13. The book is another one that is full of theory and teacher research, but this time I am ready for it. I am also about a third of the way through Grave Mercy and a few chapters into Finnikin of the Rock. I will be finishing The Selection on audiobook soon...it is getting so exciting that I will probably do an extra long workout tomorrow just so I can finish!
I would like to get The Night Circus on audiobook. I really want to read that one and have heard that this is a good audio. I also will read Shooter and Sunrise over Fallujah by Walter Dean Myers. I want to get those ones to school because I have some students who I think would really like them. I have Hide and Seek from Netgalley as well and Prodigy is calling my name. For professional books, I think I will read Opening Minds by Peter Johnston next. I also have Invincible Microbe from the library and would like to make my way through that one. I will most likely not get to all of these books but a girl can hope, right?
