This Week in Reading

  • Discussed Stand-Off by Andrew Smith with 8th grader. We both loved this book.
  • Read chapter 2 of Gooney Bird Greene by Lois Lowry to second grader. She lost interest, I really liked it. (She might still need more pictures to hold her interest)
  • Continued reading Notes From A Liar and Her Dog by Gennifer Choldenko. She mentioned she finds the book very sad. I had suggested Spy School last week, which she started and almost finished. She explained it wasn’t upsetting because it didn’t seem very realistic.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed a read aloud by second grader of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. I had read Tacky The Penguin at the Winter Games and Morris, and Boris But Mostly Delores
  • Did a close reading of “A Rose for Emily” by William Faulkner with a college student
