It's Monday! What are you reading? was started by Sheila at Book Journey and was adapted for children's books from picture books through YA by Jen of Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee of Unleashing Readers. You can visit either site for a round up of blogs sharing their weekly readings and thoughts or search Twitter for #IMWAYR. (Don't you love the updated logo?)
Last Week's Posts
- #3rdfor3rd: Cricket in Times Square. Seamus recommends this book to people that like books where the characters change.
- #3rdfor3rd: My Weird School series. Third grader Aakash loves the craziness of this creative series!
Exclamation Mark by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld. Last week's Global Read Aloud pick highlights the power of discovering your inner possibilities and figuring out how to leave your unique "mark" on the world. The kids enjoyed the humor and puns of the story, but we also had a solid discussion about what it means to leave your mark.
The Travel Book and Adventures around the Globe, published by Lonely Planet. I read and reviewed these two books this past week (you can read the full review here). The Travel Book has a jam-packed page of facts and cool details about every country in the world. Adventures Around the Globe is an activity/sticker book with some facts but mostly activities to keep a kid busy. The Travel Book has become a big hit in my classroom. (There's still time to enter the giveaway as part of the review post!)
