Happy "Revenge of the Si(x)th" day...
Okay, that may be pushing it, but it had to be said!
Teach Mentor Texts site to visit other teachers & readers to get ideas to make your own TBR pile!
Not a super charged reading week, but I also have many books in progress!
I celebrated a huge geeky day on Saturday - it was Free Comic Book Day and international Star Wars Day (May the Fourth be with you...). So I read some Star Wars and went to see a comic book movie. Iron Man 3 is fabulous.
I'm currently teaching a unit about "Pranks and Scams", which led me to the Fairy Ring book. (That's the hook - the kids will actually be learning a ton about critical thinking. Shhh... don't tell them!)
Listening to The High King. I may need to go back to this one as a non-audiobook. The narrator isn't doing it for me.
The Key and The Flame - great new MG fantasy!
Star Wars and History (oops, and it's overdue - again)
Check out my other (minimal) posts for this week.
I didn't go screen free, but I took advantage of the fact that many others were and limited my posting this past week.
Saturday - Kathy (the Brain Lair) and I announced our next read and shared our thoughts about the cover. Lots of great resources for Summer of the Mariposas. Come read along!
Sunday - Free Comic Book Day wrap up.
