Life got busy. The lettering and Instagram went on, but my blog got neglected. I’ll be updating all weekend!
Week 4 was the week of September 11. School was officially in full swing, and everyone was in the weeds. This was the week when I learned that I need to keep my boards simple. All my morning meetings cut it too close to the start of class for me to have an intricate typographical masterpiece.
Day 15: Leviathan Wakes
I haven’t read this book, but the math teacher has. He’s a good source for sci-fi literature, a genre I’m still unsure about, but which my STEM students crave.
Day 16: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
I was pleasantly surprised when my students smiled and laughed over the story of Tom and the fence. Mark Twain does it again!
Day 17: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
One of my favorite books. I read this when I was feeling disillusioned with teaching, and it reminded me why I love working in education.
Day 18: O Pioneers!
I haven’t read this books either… but as my students are in the middle of a regional project, I thought Willa Cather was appropriate. Plus, there’s a pretty cool plaque for this book on the New York Library Walk .
Day 19: Seraphina
I don’t like many YA books, but I enjoyed this one because it seems to try to explore race politics through dragons. I love dragons.
