Did you watch coverage of Punxsutawney Phil on February 2nd, Groundhog Day? He did not see his shadow, so that means we are in for an early spring...right? Riiiiiiiight. Go to Sleep, Groundhog! is a sweet book about Groundhog Day, if you happen to be looking for one for grades Pre-K through 2. How do I know this? Because I am back in the classroom...for an average of two days per week. I began substitute teaching at my son's school in September. It has been a lot more fun than I thought it would be, which is a relief! But...more on that subject at a new blog I just got the crazy notion to start up today. Because I need more work to do. That, and also, I realized after four months of substitute teaching that reflection is an important part of the job, just like with full-time teaching. So, I'm going to be doing just that on a separate blog called Substitute Teaching Sundries.
If you are a student in the fifth grade class I subbed in this past January, you might remember to ask me which page I am on in Anna Karenina. My answer would be an embarrassed "72," the same page I got to during silent reading in class that day. I haven't even met Miss Karenina yet, for goodness' sake! But, I will keep at it. At least I own this copy, so will not have to return it to the library. Have you read it? Thoughts?
OK! Now, please go visit Adrienne, because she always has interesting books to add to your reading list!
