It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA!
It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. It is a great way to recap what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week. It's also a great chance to see what others are reading right now...you just might discover your next “must-read” book!
Kellee Moye, of Unleashing Readers, and I decided to give It's Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children's literature - picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, anything in the world of kidlit - join us! We love this meme and think you will, too. We encourage everyone who participates to visit at least three of the other kidlit book bloggers that link up and leave comments for them.
How To Tell a Story Week is Coming!
Alyson Beecher from Kid Lit Frenzy and I are thrilled to announce the official countdown to How To Tell a Story week! In less than 10 days, we'll kickoff How To Tell a Story week where we celebrate this unique story-telling set from Workman that comes with a book of story-telling activities from Daniel Nayeri and colorful, illustrated blocks from Brian Won. Mark your calendars because we'll be sharing some great activities, interviews, giveaways, and even a way to get your students writing and involved in the fun. Curious already? While you wait for November 3rd to come around, you can watch this video about what How To Tell a Story is and how it works!
Last Week's Book Adventures:
Woo hoo! I finished and loved The Construction Zone by Terry Thompson. I love his candidness about the work teachers do and how we can refocus our intention when it comes to scaffolding. I thought a lot about scaffolding for teachers when I do tech PD. Great stuff. I'm also so so so close to finishing Another Day by David Levithan. Love it too. Peanut and I have been reading The Genius Files: Mission Unstoppable. I love the learning that's woven into this series! And Little Bean has requested Click, Clack, Moo, Cows That Type a few times this week.

Upcoming Book Adventures:
I'm excited to finish Another Day and to continue reading The Genius Files. I also have Children Want to Write and Zack DeLaCruz: Me and My Big Mouth by the remarkable Jeff Anderson AND Everyday Editing by the same remarkable Jeff Anderson. I'm not sure I can handle all the fun waiting for me this week!
