Lots of student projects… I’m nearing completion.
“On the Bridge” by Todd Strasser, the Buffalo News, directions for how to better use Google Drive.
What were PARENTS reading last week? Let’s check it out… (Thank you, commenters, for contributing to our book awareness. Reading is not a “school thing”.)

For every parent who leaves a comment on TODAY’S POST with what you’re reading, I’ll give your child a BUSTED ticket…

[Check back throughout the day for updates of my students’ reading.]
This past week, my A Class has read:

{Wimpy Kid #8: Hard Luck}

[Check back at the end of the day to see the cool spinning pictures of what my students are reading.]

This week we will continue sharing our reading on Padlet! Students “flipped” this part of the class and completed their sharing at home. Now we can get right into sharing and talking about our reading.

  2. I an currently reading “The Hanged Man” by T. J. MacGregor. It is a very interesting murder mystery with a lot “psychic stuff”. I am particularly enjoying the philosophical statements regarding our metaphysical existences made by the main female character. I also particularly enjoy reading books set in Miami, FL. Maybe I lived there in a past life or something…

    • A metaphysical Florida existence? I don’t see why not. Or maybe you have a doppelgänger there…. I had a nice talk with Amanda this morning. It’s good to see smiling former students. 😊. Thanks for being a regular on the blog.

  3. Does work reading count? I am on module 10 of the STAR Oncology Rehab certification course. This is the last module before the exam! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

    • Of COURSE work reading counts. One of the reasons learning to read well is so important is so we can get a job we want. Can you imagine doing the work for your job and learning all this oncology information if you were struggling to read it? Reading–>job we want–>$life we hope for$–>being able to do cool things and also HELP OTHERS.

      Thanks for sharing. It’s so important.

  4. I’m excited about ALLEGIANT and CHAMPION. I don’t know when I’ll get to them, but I already bought Allegiant and will be buying Champion. So many books, so little time…I’m finishing up Half Brother by Ken Oppel – loved it!
