I wish I could say that I did a lot reading this weekend, but I didn't. It was a very stressful weekend. My week didn't end on a very good note, and I'm not one to easily let things go. So I brooded about things all weekend. I'm working on letting things go that I have no control over. I'll be a lot happier that way.
On to the little bit of reading that I did do this weekend. I read about 15 picture books. There were 4 that really stood out to me. In no particular order, Chicken Butt by Erica S. Perl, Ducks Don't Wear Socks by John Nedwidek, Hopper and Wilson by Maria Van Lieshout, and Kindergarten Diary by Antoinette Portis.
I also began reading Born to Fly by Michael Ferrari. I haven't gotten too far into the book, but I'm interested to read more.
I've got some more picture books and a few chapter books that I picked up at the library this weekend. Hopefully I'll be able to do some more reading this week. I've got to get my house cleaned, so I might try to bribe myself: a little cleaning and then a little reading. I'm still trying to get my Google Reader under control. There are so many great posts, but boy I can't let it go without me checking for even a day.
I do need a favor. I'm asking for your help. I'm putting together a list of books for my students as suggestions for over the summer. I'm grouping them in the following way: K-1, 2-3, 4-5. I'm trying to put together book trailers for the kids to watch for some on the list. If you have any suggestions please leave them in the comment section. Thank you in advance!!
