It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 2/8/2021


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 ReadersThe 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:
The For Teachers workshop last week was awesome! If you missed it, catch the replay HERE! And I got to see some of my students in person as we started hybrid last week as well. I'm happy to have week one done and to see how we lean into hybrid and what the rest of the year will look like. I am still reading The 57 Bus and The Anti-Racist Writing Workshop. 

At the workshop I shared the next Story Exploratory For Teachers's virtual weekend retreat and it's called For Teachers: Diving Into Mentor Texts. It's a deeper dive into literacy + social justice using mentor texts to explore how we can make the most of mentor texts for our own writing and with students. I'm so excited! You can find more details HERE

This Week's Adventures:

I'll still be reading The 57 Bus and The Anti-Racist Writing Workshop and I also just got a copy of Cultivating Genius that I'm really looking forward to. I'm also sharing poetry as activism with students and I'm looooving the resources from 826 and this unit by Ola Faleti called Poets In Revolt! I had the pleasure to work with Ola when I volunteered with 826CHI and attend a poetry workshop that she led. Have any favorite spoken word poems to share? So far we've watched Amanda Gorman's The Hill We Climb and Elizabeth Acevedo's Rat Ode. I'd love to hear others you love. 

Goodness Coming Your Way This Week!
