Here's what Maddie and I read together this past week:
Maddie and I do far more reading than what gets documented. She is a typical three year old and loves to have the same books read and reread to her over and over and over and over again. She's rotating (again) through her Pinkalicious books and Llama Llama books. We'll see what tickles her fancy this week. The Dora #bookpic is included because that was a time when she held the book up and said to me, "Time for our #bookpic , mommy." Apparently, we take a lot of pictures with our books.
Here's what I finished this past week:
|This was an audiobook that I LOVED! I will be writing up my first review this week about.|
|This was my first introduction to Squish. I'm stalking the Amoeba, too. |
I'm a HUGE fan of Lunch Lady and have no qualms checking out every copy I haven't read just to read them. They are NEVER at the library long. Still waiting for books 2 & 3.
I seem to have developed quite an ADD habit with reading lately. I still have NOT finished The One and Only Ivan or Choice Words. Choice Words is a small book but full of things that are really forcing me to stop and think. I read, digest, and then go back to it.
Reading in progress:
And, I added this book to my reads for the week in preparation for #virtualbookclub on 7/22/13.
I started out strong this past week with Teachers Write! and kind of waned toward the end as unexpected day trips and an overnight trip to Grandma's took over. My intention is to get back in the swing of things and get cracking EVERY day. I love the interactions with Kate Messner, Gae Polisner, Jen Vincent, and the amazing guest authors and fellow Teachers Write! campers. I've noticed that I am writing a lot of poetry so I'm going to include Poetry Friday (also inspired by my Twitter pal, Jen from Teach Mentor Texts) in my writing and reading week. You'll also see Slice of Life again. At the very least, I'm writing (and reading) far more than I have in the past and feel extremely happy with that.
What are you reading and writing this week?
