It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. It is a great way to recap what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week. It's also a great chance to see what others are reading right now… who knows, you might discover that next “must read” book!
Our Kid Lit to YA version is hosted by Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers.
GREAT IDEA! Check out all of the What Are You Reading? participants for title ideas.
The DIY book ... only offers two projects. That was kind of disappointing. But there's some good basic info there so that's better than nothing. Build background knowledge.
I read several picture book bios last week. They were quite well done in terms of pictures and text working together. I did enjoy them. I'm just not sure about the "need" for picture book bios on the people in question. That might be a personal hangup but Johnny Cash? Kandinsky's abstract art? Frieda Kahlo? Baseball players from the late 90s/2000s? Kids need all sorts of life examples. Just know these will take a lot more "selling" to kids than they did to adults.
And ... no time to add to the post. I always end up reading different things than I write down, anyway. ;)
May the Fourth be with you!
