I finished the Alex Rider kid spy series and then got busy reading Unglued for the women's book group at church. The Reading Teacher came and I got distracted by some interesting articles in it. Oh, yeah, somewhere in there I worked on the EEIS Newsletter which will be finished and emailed in the next week, I think.
Anyway, I needed an easy read to pass some time and found a kids book that had been sitting on the shelf for a while. Just finished reading it last night. Masterpiece was a clever story about a boy and a tiny beetle. I recommend it to kids who like fantasy with a little mystery.
Now I have started a kids book by John Grisham. Didn't know he was writing kids' books. So far I'm liking the book. It is about a small town thirteen year old who wants to be a lawyer, imagine that from John Grisham.
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.
