Good reads…

So I love to read.  Pretty much anything, although I tend to be drawn to a good story I can get lost in.  A few weeks ago Mr. Weber dragged in into Wal-mart where I passed a display of paperback books.  How could I resist?  I picked up a copy of The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo (also wrote Because of Winn Dixie and The Tale of Despereaux).  Turns out I enjoyed it much more than I thought!  And I made lots of connections to other texts I’ve read (mostly to students).  

Well the beauty of being a teacher…I can read children’s books and say that I’m “doing research” for students.  Partially true, but the reality is that I end up loving most of the children’s treasures I uncover!  They are great quick escapes for me.

Here’s my dilemma…there is NEVER enough time to share all of the great books I come across in my classroom.  NEVER.  But thank goodness for technology!  And the concept of blogging!  I’ll be building a new section for student sharing:  Good reads!
