My friend Karen at Literate Lives invited me to be a part of this exciting blogging event: 10 for 10. I however with just starting my blog this week and was not sure if I could pull all my books together so I admit it. I have cheated and read everyone's blogs today go here to see all the links. I hope Mandy and Cathy can forgive me. So 8 of 10 comes from the joy of reading everyone blogs today-a big THANKS to everyone for making my want to read list really long. I did add my own original 2 at the end of the list. As my 7th grade English teacher said, "Always cite your sources so here I go."
|I chose this book because I love Melanie Watt and I love how she writes with such detail and description. I just purchased Chester's Masterpiece which might be my first read aloud of the year in Writer's Workshop.|
From Katie at Creative Literacy:
From Franki and Mary Lee at A Year of Reading: I had to choose these 3 books because I have never read them and now I am curious about them. I love when I get new titles to add my reading journal!
From Karen and Bill at Literate Lives I chose these 4 books for four very different reasons.
|I had to choose this one because I teach upstairs and I heard the students in the library laughing hysterically.|
|This is one of my favorites and Karen and I found this book when our good friend, Sarah, shared it with us. I echo all of Karen's comments.|
|I forgot about this book until I saw it on Karen's post-thanks for reminding me of such a beautifully written book.|
|I also have my copy of Frederick from the summer reading club. I can remember waiting for my new book to arrive at my house monthly and sitting down and reading it with my mom!|
Finally my own two favorite books that I always read on the first day of school.
Thanks for letting me participate-it was an amazing day of reading blogs!!
|I love this book because of the creativity of the story as well as it kicks off our first day discussion about what makes a GREAT team.|
|I won't ruin the ending but the surprise is wonderful and the students love it!!|
