Book Journey, Jen and Kellee over at Teach Mentor Texts host a kidlit version of It's Monday! What are You Reading?
I have lots of bookish things to talk about from this past week.
First of all, I amassed quite a few new books from the Scholastic warehouse sale.
The Booksource's FREE classroom organizer. This is epic people. If you haven't seen this before, hold onto your seats. This organizer basically allows teachers to do what libraries do: electronically keep track of books in and books out, but this lets us do it for FREE! Teachers like free.
In addition to the Scholastic sale I also, like I do every week, visited my library's used bookstore. Instead of a yearly book sale, my library has a bookstore that is open a few hours 6 days a week. Every Tuesday is a member's only day where you can come in and get first pick of the "new" stock. They generally have a nice collection of kid's books, so I often leave with a bag full of books, having spent anywhere from $1-15. This was my haul from this week:
Books I am currently listening to:
The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler
The Watsons Go to Birmingham - 1963 by Christopher Paul Curtis
