Just a quick book recommendation for you. I recently read and enjoyed Once Upon a Cool Motorcycle Dude. It would fit in if you are talking about fairy tales, girls books vs. boy books, or writing. Besides which it's funny.
Today was the end of the 3rd quarter at school. It is hard to believe that 3/4 of this year is already gone. I still have so much that I want to teach my kids. And I know that a substantial part of April will be devoted to testing them for the school and the State. Then come those field trips and programs and lots of other things to disrupt the day to day schedule. Oh, well. I'm sure that everything will fit in as it has in the past.
It seems strange to be looking ahead to set the date when all the books are due. (I still try to get them all back so that I can do an inventory before we send the books out again for summer checkout.) It's also time to start thinking about a summer reading program for my high school (well, mainly junior high school students). Luckily, my co-worker usually has a handle on that as I am not even in town for the summer. Once school lets out I migrate north to spend time with family, read, and relax. Summers "off" are one of the perks of being a school media specialist.
