It's Monday March 18th

It's Monday - time to update my blog with my weekly reading efforts.


Don't forget to visit Teach Mentor Texts to read other blogs and add to your TBR list! 


The Nerdbery Challenge continues - and I collect two more gems. This takes me to 70/92! 



Poetry:
Meh. While I think kids will like it, I had to force myself to finish it. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood?


Picture Books:

Awesome.
Cat Tale had interesting illustrations and a fun spin on homophones. Some reviewers complained that there was a mismatch between the younger child style of illustrations and older language skills, but I think that will actually be helpful for my kids. I plan to use it with my second graders.

Nelson Mandela was amazing. Gorgeous and simple telling of a life.


Science Fiction: 
Full review for last week's Sci Friday:



Miss some of my education related posts from this past week?
