It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme began by Sheila at Book Journeys as a way to share what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and what is in store for the upcoming week. It's also a great chance to see what others are reading. I first learned about it at Teach Mentor Texts.
The timer is set for 45 minutes. As my days get fuller and jam packed, I find that setting a timer helps me stay on track PLUS I love to compete against myself. Oh, the little thrills in life.
Here is a cool time keepping tool you can download
Scholastic Reading Timer
What I am reading electronically:
I would read this faster but I have to compete with the 3 year-old for use of my Ipad. It's that face and the "May I use the Ipad, please? I want to learn too" The kid is a genius at manipulation using a smile and those nice manners.
Maggie Stiefvater: The Dream Thieves
What I am Reading at School
Mr. Bones will be sharing all the happenings in our school library on Twitter as a way to keep our families updated.
PK 3 year-olds really loved this one:
Five Little Monkeys Reading in Bed.
What Happened to Marion's Book
I love to use this for teaching about good book care. If you don't have it, good luck. It appears to be out of print. I have great resources for this book including our example of a Book Hospital.
Time is running out! Only 15 minutes to go because Mr. Bones and I get too easily distracted.
Greg Heffley revealed a secret to Mr. Bones but the kids overheard them whispering. A new Diary of a Wimpy Kid book will be released November 15, 2013! We can pre-order it at our upcoming October book fair! Happy cheers were heard for miles!

We love this resource! Jeff Kinney's Cartoon Class: How to Draw Greg Heffley
Look how this clever Kindergarten class created their own interpretation of The Dot. Love it!
...and that's time up! Here is the same timer that I was using. I ordered it though the Scholastic Resource catalog using Scholastic dollars. It has come in handy for many library activities.
