It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA!
It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a weekly blog hop I co-host with Kellee and Ricki from Unleashing Readers. The original IMWAYR, with an adult literature focus, was started by Sheila at Book Journeys and is now hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date.
It's a great way to share what you're reading and get recommendations. We encourage you to write your own post sharing what you’re reading, link up below, leave a comment, and support other IMWAYR bloggers by visiting and commenting on at least three of the other linked blogs.
Last Week's Adventures:
Last week I read Brave in the Woods by Tracy Holczer and shared how you can use it as a mentor text. On the adult side I read more of In the Dream House, Keep Moving, and I reread The Big Leap. On the education side, I'm reading Cultivating Genius so I can join the book club discussion that The Institute for Anti-Racist Education is hosting on Thursday.
Our librarian book talked different Black authors for Black History Month last week so I read the first chapter of Ghost by Jason Reynolds to them on Friday. They agreed that it was not boring! (If you go to his website and read the about page, he says his goal is to not write boring books. I've made an effort to go to author/illustrator websites to get to know them before we read their work.)
This Week's Adventures:
I'm going to start reading The Flight of the Puffin by Ann Braden this week! And read more of Cultivating Genius.
Goodness Coming Your Way This Week!
Story Exploratory Update:
I also have more exciting news! There's another FREE workshop headed your way! For Teachers: Reclaim You is about time to recenter.
Teacher friends tell me they are overwhelmed, exhausted, drained, stressed out, feeling pressure from everywhere, not feeling like they are doing enough at home or at school. We shouldn't have to sacrifice everything for our students. We love the work that we do but we don't to let the public school system suck our souls away.
Give me one hour and I'll help you take a full, deep breath and recenter so you can reclaim YOU and walk into the weekend with open arms and a full heart.
