It's Monday - May 6th

Happy "Revenge of the Si(x)th" day...

Okay, that may be pushing it, but it had to be said!

Check out the 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!)

Currently reading:
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.
