I think I went a little overboard.
I went to the library today to pick up a couple holds, and left with 18 things. I'm planning some projects in social studies, English, and literature in the next few weeks and months and so I just kept filling my bag with book after book. I could barely carry the bag to my car.
I love learning new things though so I'm looking forward to delving into each one of these books.
The subjects are:
Poetry (for my plans for National Poetry Month activities)
Berlin & the Berlin Wall (my favorite city on earth!)
Hungary (for a Europe project I'm having my students do)
