I've just got to share the good stuff I read.

I love to read. I read every chance I get. If I read something really good, I want to share it with my friends and co-workers. I make copies of magazine articles, read aloud to my students, tell others about good books I'm reading, and keep a book with me at all times.

I love teaching and learning new things. I need a place to share some of the lessons and what my students and I learn. Since my teaching situation is different from everyone else's in my school, I would like to tell all of you in the blog-o-sphere about these great lessons.

Feel free to share what you are reading, teaching and learning with us in the comments.

Remembering Red Rocks

I have been listening to a Celtic Woman CD as I drive to school and back home. I try to sing along when I know the song. The best thing about the music is how I am transported through time and space back to the concert at Red Rocks. It was a magical setting with the massive rocks surrounding us, the light subtly changing as the sun went down. It is a wonderful memory. I am so glad we were able to share that night with Joey and Jessie.

Popular Fiction

Okay, I am reading The Hunger Games. I wasn't interested when I first heard about the series. I love book series but have read some depressing stuff in the past that sounded like the way this series was going to be. It is not high literature but so far it's entertaining. I will probably read the others, too.

I shouldn't turn my nose up at these stories. The books I have been reading on my nook are really fluff. Sometimes I'm just in the mood for mindless reading for pleasure. I have two other books in progress-Bringing Up Bebe and God Is Not One. Both too serious for me right now.

So I'm going back to the dystopian future when I post this.

On the sewing front I finished two little baby quilts with Eric Carle prints and green minky dots on the back. I hope to get the borders on my summer block party quilt. Then I will have 7 tops to finish. Oh, my.
