Book Journey, Jen over at Teach Mentor Texts along with Kellee and Ricki at Unleashing Readers also host a kidlit version of It's Monday! What are You Reading?
My Monday posts are generally just a highlight of what I've been reading
during the week so if you'd like to see all that I've been reading,
follow my Goodreads page.
Happy Labor Day everyone! It's funny, at first when I was hired to teach at my new school I was kind of bummed that we started school before Labor Day, but now that we've got a couple weeks under our belts, I realized that I kind of like starting before Labor Day because back when I worked at a school that started the day after Labor Day, I was always working getting my classroom ready during this holiday weekend. This year, I can actually sit back and enjoy it because my classroom has been ready for a while now.
Despite how busy I've been with school, I managed to have a pretty good reading week.
