Went to Value Village this weekend to shop for a very special upcoming birthday (you know who you are, missy!) and bought loads and loads of books for my classroom instead. My students are required to do a lot of outside reading in different genres (and, shocking fact, there is no library at my school). They tend to lean toward the classics, so I plucked those off the shelf first. I was happily surprised to see The Odyssey and As I Lay Dying (a personal favorite). I also grabbed some fun ones: Lightning Thief, Marley & Me, and Miracle Wimp. They seemed interesting!

My lovely roommate snapped some very artistic photos of my new books.

On a related note, I'm hoping to begin To Kill a Mockingbird with my 8th graders on Friday! I'm looking forward to it mostly because I already have an entire unit plan I created for it in college. It will be nice to have some breathing time from the nightly planning scrambles.

Happy Fall, everyone! Enjoy the changes.

Wow Maddie, you found a way to talk up our Techniques curriculum for the panel discussion! A-plus-plus :-)

Haha...I'm not even up to my usual brown nosing antics. Seriously, I am so happy I made that plan at this point! Making up lessons the night before is catching up to me in the form of serious exhaustion.

By the way, what should I read during my Hawaii trip Ms. Baird?
