First of all, I wish I could tell you my bags were packed and that I was on my way to Vegas. Sadly, it just isn’t in the cards for me this year if I ever want my husband to finish our new home.
So there I was, blogging to the world about needing consistency in swim class for my daughter. Not two days later, she bumped her head, had it glued shut (no stitches), and has been told no water for a whole week. I jinxed it – silly me!! I will spare you the photo of the ugly aftermath of her injury.
I’m not sure if I was feeling super motivated one day or just crazy, but I decided it was time to update my Magic Tree House packs. Updates and cosmetic changes are not unheard of, but there are 28 books in the series, not to mention I have several bundle options available. This one will take awhile, but I’m hoping to finish the updates by the end of the month.
I also finished up a holiday project and a new page for my son’s scrapbook. I need to get pictures taken of those today for my next blog post.
Last week at swim class, there was a summer camp for older children going on outside. My daughter saw the kids making these and begged me to try them. I said maybe. Now that I have to keep my daughter out of the pool, this sounds like a great hands-on project. I’m also hoping to get another page or two finished for my son’s scrapbooks.
I wouldn’t say this book is in my top 10 of all time, but it’s definitely an interesting read, especially if you like John Grisham’s style of writing. I’m almost to the end, so I’m happy to carve out a little reading time to finish it.
Head on over to the Teaching Trio to see what everyone else is up to today:
Just finished up a book companion for Amazing Animal Journeys, a Level 3 National Geographic Kids text. This book follows the migration of zebras, red crabs, and walruses. If you already own the bundle, be sure to grab this latest addition.
I love this book recommendation table from Learning on Leighton Lane! ❤️❤️❤️I love this book recommendation table by @learningonleightonlane!!! She painted a thrift store find with chalkboard paint and used chalk markers to do the writing. ♥️ Her class “librarians” choose books for the table and kids may take and read any book they find there! Such a perfect way to celebrate reading!!! ... See MoreSee Less
Books have been a constant in my life since I was a young reader. I'm so glad that it's my turn to share my love of books with others. ❤️❤️❤️Books have meant so much to me my entire life. I love how books can change our perspective or strengthen our beliefs. I love how you can pass joy by sharing a book you love with someone. I love how more recently, educators and publishing house are realizing the importance and significance of representation in children’s books. I’d like to point out however, that BIPOC folx and LGBT+ folx and differently abled folx have been begging for representation for....ever. In a well know idea from Rudine Sims Bishop, books should be mirrors and windows for our students. I love this graphic by @grantdraws What have books been for you? #thetututeacher #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers ... See MoreSee Less
