From the school library today ...

Since the beginning of last month, I have been on a reading kick …

A reading kick of books from elementary school libraries!

(You might notice that every once in awhile I stretch outside of the elementary school library and read a book just for me)

Many of the books I have read so far this year have been from the Elementary Battle of the Books list for my school system. Many of my students at the three schools are reading these books, so it helps us form a community of readers.

In another attempt at forming that community of readers, I talk to my students about what I am reading and ask what they are reading. I have even found out the favorite books of my students and tried to read some of those …  

That would be the reason behind my reading of a Geronimo Stilton book!

And the reason I am currently reading a Percy Jackson book!

There is a book on the shelf above that I read because I really thought the cover was neat …

I ended up not really liking the book very much …

There is also a book on the shelf above that I thought about reading and then decided to pass after I read the description on the back of the book.

It was only after hearing the recommendation of a librarian that I decided to give it a try …

And it turns out that I enjoyed it so much that I went out and bought a copy of the book so I can loan it to others!!!

I guess those examples go along with the saying about not being able to judge a book by its cover …

Even though I know the type of book I prefer reading, I am trying to stretch out and explore other possibilities!

Here are the books I checked out from the school library today: 

You may notice an INVENTION theme in my books this week …

My most recent DonorsChoose project is for MakeyMakey Invention Kits for my student:
