Treat Tuesday


First, I would like to share the book I just finished last week… The One and Only Ivan.  I loved it so much that it deserved a five-heart rating from me. If you haven’t read it yet, you should!  And, you should share it with your students not only because it’s a great book, but because it is the *grand winner* of the 2013 Newbery Award. Congratulations to Katherine Applegate!

It’s Treat Tuesday!  What are you reading? What are you eating?

This week I am reading Bigger Than a Bread Box by Laurel Snyder.  While I read, I am treating myself to a cup of hot tea (in a Starbucks mug) and some biscotti.  A great book and a great treat for a cold winter day!

  1. Just put “The One and Only Ivan” on hold at the library! Just have to wait for someone to return one. I also put a hold on “Wonder” because I hear it is amazing as well. Can’t wait to get started! (also love the tea and biscotti!)

    • I absolutely loved the book WONDER! Pair it with the book FIREGIRL by Tony Abbott and you should have a great lesson/book discussion about comparing texts. One of my favorite aspects of IVAN was the non-traditional writing style Applegate used. Once again, a book that is thought provoking! Enjoy! Thanks for visiting my blog! 🙂
