This is my first post for "It's Monday! What Are You Reading?" I have so enjoyed following the other bloggers to see what they were reading each week. Thanks to Jen and Kellee for hosting this idea on their site. Here is a link to their site...
*I didn't get as much reading done as I would have liked. My family and I traveled to Colorado to visit some great friends. We also did a couple of college visits for my daughter. She will be a senior this year. We went to University of Nebraska and University of Kansas. It will be so fun to see where she will end up.
Books I Will Read This Coming Week...
Laugh With The Moon by Shana Burg
The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian (Adult Book)
*My wife are going to Mexico on Wednesday. She won a free trip. I plan on downloading several adult books (grown-up books) on my Ipad. I'm not sure exactly what those titles will be, but I will add them next week.
When thinking of what I wanted to post first, it was a pretty easy decision.
This has been an incredible summer for me. In June I entered the world of Twitter and my professional life has forever been changed.
It has been WONDERFUL connecting with so many other teachers and educators.
This last school year I introduced the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio. It was one of our "Breakfast with Books" book club selections. I will blog about "Breakfast with Books" in the future. The book became one of our favorite books.
As I got to know the Twitter world, it became apparent that many people were in awe of the book. As they like to call it "TheWonderofWonder."
Last night I participated in a Twitter book club about Wonder. It was another WONDERFUL moment for me.
I had been tossing the idea around of starting a blog after looking at, reading, and poking around so many blogs from educators around the country.
When the Twitter book club wrapped up, I knew it was time to jump into the world of blogging.
I know it will become a WONDER in my life and my career.
So in honor of my new blog, I dedicate it to the book Wonder and to all the wonderful teachers on Twitter and all the others I haven't met yet, but I know are out there...
Auggie from Wonder and all of you are truly an inspiration to me!
