Our class is reading Tales of 4th Grade Nothing by Judy Blume.  Today, we read chapters 5 and 6.  I absolutely love the reactions that the students have when we read the chapters in Reader's Theater.  

The laughter is fabulous!  

My goal is for them to realize that reading is awesome and evokes emotion!  I love sharing this book with my class!!

September 5, 2014

I am currently reading The Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan.  I am absolutely LOVING the books that Riordan writes.  I am actually reading them backwards because I started with the Heros series this summer.  I didn't think I was going to like it, but I loved it!

Each demigod has become someone that I love and adore!  I enjoy reading their stories and trying to figure out where they are headed!  I love being a part of their world.

For years, I have had 4th graders tell me that they would love for me to read them because they thought I would enjoy them.  I thought I would not like them at all because they are not my normal genre of book.  However, they were so very right!

I love these books!

Summer Reading

This is where you are going to type about your summer reading.  You need to list books that you have read.  You need to tell what you liked about them and what you didn't like.  You need to write about why or why not you would tell a friend to read this book.

This summer I read the Heros series by Rick Riordan
