I'm leaving on Thursday for my second trip to Boston, much smaller group, only 30 kids this time. I won't be posting until I get back, but I'm pretty excited, I received a copy of James Preller's new book Justin Fisher Declares War! today and will be taking it with me.
I finished Patricia MacLachlan's new book Word After Word After Word and liked it a lot. I can see many uses for this in the class room, Karen reviewed it here. I wonder if Ms. Mirabel has been added to the list of cool teachers at A Year of Reading. Since the book has already received a lot of attention from the blog world, I thought I'd make a mosaic for it.
