It's Monday! What are you reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. Jen Vincent over at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee Moye from Unleashing Readers decided to put a children's and YA spin on it and they invite anyone with an interest to join in. You can participate by creating your post then visit one of their sites to add your site. Finally, visit at least three participant blogs and comment to spread the love.
If you want to know more about what I am reading, visit me at my Goodreads shelf. Images via Goodreads unless otherwise noted.
The Past Week:
Jingle Dancer is a re-read for me, and I had a great time sharing it with second grade this week. I loved that students noticed the connections between Hmong New Year and Powwow. They even pointed out that their traditional clothing also jingles because of the coins that decorate their fancy clothes.
I read an ARC of Chitchat and will be reviewing it later this week. It's a fun look at the history, development and use of world languages.
The majority of my reading this week though has been in preparation for voting on the Nerdies. Here they are:
Words with Wings, Frog Song, and Flora and Ulysses were my top picks from these, but there were many that I loved.
The Coming Week:
Up next, I have Lincoln's Grave Robbers and many more fun books from the Nerdies list. I have six here in the house and 11 more are in transit according to my library account so I will have plenty to choose from this week. What will you be reading this week?
