Last Week's Adventures:
Last week I finished re-listening to The Anthropocene Reviewed by John Green because I met up to discuss with three of my friends who helped me get through the pandemic. It was lovely. I started listening to Unplug by Suze Yalof Schwartz and started reading Ralph Fletcher’s new and expanded A Writer’s Notebook: Unlocking the Writer Within You.

This Week's Adventures:

I’ll keep reading A Writer’s Notebook and will finish up Unplug. If I finish Unplug, I’m thinking I’d like to read The Willpower Instinct. I’m on the lookout for non-fiction to read with 8th graders this spring…either as a whole class read or book clubs. Let me know if you have any recommendations!

Last Week's Adventures:
I had a great time writing with a friend at the library. I looked through a stack of picture books and gathered up books for her to read as she’s exploring writing her own picture book. Three I pulled for her: Frog and Toad Are Friends, Charlie and Mouse, Bink and Gollie.

This Week's Adventures:

My new and updated copy of A Writer’s Notebook: New and Expanded Edition: Unlocking the Writer Within You by Ralph Fletcher came so I’m excited to read it and share it with students.

I finished reading The Art of Gathering by Priya Parker. I am re-listening to The Anthropocene Reviewed by John Green because I’m meeting with friends for a sort-of but not-really book club in a couple of weeks. It is a book that my heart really needed. 

This Week's Adventures:

I’ll be listening to The Anthropocene Reviewed as I head back to school this week and then I’ll be reading lots of picture books because I’ll be doing a Mock Caldecott unit for the first time. I’m so excited! Have you done Mock Caldecott? Any advice for me?

Last week I finished reading Ann Braden’s upcoming novel Opinions and Opossums and it is sooooooooo good! I also read more of Welcoming the Unwelcome and started listening to Pilar Ramirez and the Escape from Zafa by Julian Randall. 

This Week's Adventures:

I’m about halfway through Pilar Ramirez and the Escape from Zafa so I’ll continue to listen to that. I also got a ton of Celtic mythology books from the library. One is a middle grade novel so I’m really interested in that but also in exploring the others as well. I’m all stocked up for winter break reading…our break starts on Thursday!

I read more of Welcoming the Unwelcome and I read some of The Beginner’s Guide to Runes as I’m waiting for my Celtic mythology books to come in at the library. At NCTE, I was able to get an ARC of Ann Braden’s book Opinions and Opossums and I am about halfway through. It’s so great! 

This Week's Adventures:

This week I’m sure I’ll finish Opinions and Opossums and I have an ARC of Grounded by Aisha Saeed, S.K. Ali, Huda Al-Marashi, and Jamila Thompsons-Bigelow that I’m looking forward to reading. I’ll continue reading Welcome the Unwelcome and exploring The Beginner’s Guide to Runes.

Last Week's Adventures:
Guess what…I didn’t read like I thought I would. I am savoring Welcoming the Unwelcome by Pema Chodron, her words seem to always be exactly what I need when I read them.

This Week's Adventures:

This week I’m sure I’ll read more of Welcoming the Unwelcome and I’ve been talking to a friend about my Irish and Welsh heritage which has encouraged me to explore Celtic mythology. So far I’ve been reading things I’ve found online but I think I’d like to also explore a book, especially a book for kids.

Last week I FINALLY finished reading The Stormrunner. I loved the whole thing but I especially love how things came together at the end. I also read more of Welcoming the Unwelcome and have started listening to A Snake Falls to Earth. I need to unpack my suitcase and look closely at the books I picked up from NCTE! I’m excited for that!

This Week's Adventures:

This week I’d like to listen to more of A Snake Falls to Earth and continue reading Welcoming the Unwelcome and then I’ll explore my NCTE finds. I’m looking forward to a quiet week after a day of school and parent-teacher conferences.
