*I wasn't sure what to post for this week's "Wonder Wednesday". As I was thinking about the past week, I thought of several "wonder" moments I've had both in and out of the classroom.
*Here are a few moments that captured both my thoughts and heart. Of course they all have to do with reading and books...
Melissa Savage was kind enough to send me an ARC of her next novel. I abosutely loved her first book Lemons and I'm enjoying this story just was much.
This picture book came to me via the publisher and I so enjoyed it. I enjoyed it even more when I shared it with my fourth grade listeners. There is so much to think about and discuss.
I've been wanting to read this book for quite some time. I was thrilled when it arrived in the mail this week via my #bookexpedition Twitter group. I read it in two sittings and can't wait to share it with my class.
*These two girls are lucky enough to be reading from a "manuscript" from an author that we have had connections with during the school year. They are reading it and going to share any "ideas" they have for the story. I can't tell you how excited they were to get this "future book" in their hands.
As I finished this read aloud, I looked out into the classroom and noticed a boy tearing up and hiding his face in a large pillow on the carpet. He was quite emotional and I knew he had made a real connection to this piece of literature.
