It's so hard for me to find things to post about during the summer. I can write about ideas I'm finding-because believe me Pinterest and I have become very well-acquainted! One drawback to looping is that you have to start all over from scratch-you can't use any books/lessons that you have done before. So I am going to do what I see others doing and post about my own reading list for this summer.
I am one of those people who loved reading as a kid. But as I got older and started reading a lot for my job, reading just wasn't fun for me anymore. I have a movie attention-span--I want to find out what happens! I would buy books and start books, but rarely finished them. It's funny, people at work think I'm a literate person because I'm always the one trying to start a book club--but I do that because I know that will make me read! Last summer I read the Book Whisperer and was inspired--I promised myself I'd read at least 5 books last summer-and I accomplished that. This summer I doubled it and I'm well on my way.
Along with the educational resources:
For fun I have also read:
I LOVED this book! I usually don't like when it goes back and forth between past and present, but it was really easy to keep up with which reality was which. I will never look at a bouquet of flowers the same way again!
It started out really good, I had high expectations. A little bit dark, but I like dark. However, the main character just got on my nerves too much. :) But it's very well-written.
After drilling it into my students to read this summer--I can't wait to share with them the number of books I read this summer!
