I am constantly starting new books, so at any given time, I am usually reading three or four books at once. First up, something teacher-related...I am rereading Whole Brain Teaching for Challenging Kids. I read this for the first time last summer and it changed the way I teach. I definitely recommend this book if you haven't read it yet. This book explains the beginnings of Whole Brain Teaching and gives specific step-by-step instructions to implement this system into your class. I have only positive things to say about this approach. My students loved it, I loved it, and it is a lot of fun!
I am also reading The Fault in our Stars. So far, it is pretty good. I know that there is a movie out, but I really have no desire to see it; maybe when it comes out on dvd. Movies are never as good as the books anyway. I have so many students who do not realize that a lot of their favorite movies were originally books, drives me crazy! But, I digress; that topic is for an entirely different post.
Finally, this one is more for my own pleasure. I am reading The Husband's Secret. I have gotten pretty far into the book, but not far enough to know the "secret" and it is driving me insane! I just want to know so badly what the secret is. I am so pathetic, I even tried to Google it. I stopped short of actually finding out, but I was so close. As you can tell, I don't handle surprises/anticipation very well. Hopefully, it lives up to all that I am imagining in my head!
Both of my kiddos are still sleeping, so I think that I am going to take advantage of this quiet time and read one of these books! Have a good day!
