What I read this week
I just finished my summer re-listen of Divergent by Veronica Roth. These are the books I will be listening to while I work this week. I am very excited to hear Navigating Early after my recent experience with Moon Over Manifest. Clare Vanderpool appears to be an author with endless talent.
Science Topic books I re-read this week:
A Storm Called Katrina
Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11
A Look at Unusual Animal Partnerships
by Steve Jenkins and Robin Page
Houghton Mifflin Books for Children (2010)
Watch the book trailer: How to Clean a Hippopotamus
Book on Deck:
(if I can get the book loan from the nearby high school library)
Keeping the Castle: a tale of romance, riches, and real estate
author: Patrice Kindl
Book appeal: fans of Jane Austen literature and Downtown Abbey fans.
Summary: In order to support her family and maintain their ancient castle in Lesser Hoo, seventeen-year-old Althea bears the burden of finding a wealthy suitor who can remedy their financial problems.
I am also looking forward to my first experience participating in Teachers Write beginning tomorrow. My primary goal is to improve my writing skills and learn to use more concise, meaningful language in my writing.
I am always looking for new and exciting books to introduce my students to and welcome suggestions. Let me hear you book talk the best book you have read recently. I am all ears!
