It’s Monday! What Are You Reading is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
Other Than Reading...
I don't know where this week went. Monday at the Elementary was crazy. To celebrate the completion of our new addition, the principal hired a couple of DJs and all of the kids went to a dance party during their "Specials" time. I spent the afternoon dancing with my students. On the positive side, this is the first time this year that my Fitbit registered over 10,000 steps. On the negative side, I didn't know it was going to happen and it messed up my week's lesson plans.
I also had two meetings this week that took up Tuesday evening and Thursday late afternoon. I'm glad to have those meetings out of the way. As a holdover from the crud I've had for a couple of weeks, I found myself taking naps when I got home from school each day which really cut into my reading time. I am feeling much better now and think I might be able to stay awake all day today.
Next week is midquarters. My sixth graders grades are all caught up and we have moved on to a unit on Internet Safety. It is hard to believe that we are in the middle of our third quarter already.
Read Last Week
The Skeleton Garden by Marty Wingate which is the latest in her Potting Shed cozy mystery series. I like the characters in this series and thought the mystery was done well too. My review will be posted on March 12.
I also read Tumbled Graves by Brenda Chapman. This is the third book in a series but I had no trouble beginning the series here. It tells the complicated story of a missing mother and daughter while also talking about the complications in the lives of the investigators. I enjoyed it and, luckily, have the first two books on my Kindle. My review will be posted on March 17.
Dragon Harper by Anne McCaffrey and Todd McCaffrey. I purchased this book on May 8, 2008. It is my goal to finish reading this whole series in 2016.
