In honor of September 6, National Read a Book Day, I have an invitation for you. .
.
This summer I read a fantastic book called “The Book Whisperer” by Donalyn Miller.  My fabulous 4th grade team decided to try her “40 Book Challenge” with our students. Since school has started, I’ve had to get after 3 of my students to put their books away that they were secretly reading inside their desk. 
.
.
Did you know that the average adult only reads 4 books a year?!!! That is such a sad statistic.  sooooooo...
.
.
I want to extend this challenge to all of my friends! Kind of like the exercise/diet challenge only this one’s for the BRAIN 🧠! .
.
It can be any chapter book. Small, big or in between. Scripture, fiction, poetry or anything you want to read. Facebook articles don’t count. Sorry! .
.
I will post the books that I read and give my review and I hope to see yours too! .
.
So go to the library, get on Amazon or borrow from a friend and let’s get reading!!

So excited to introduce my kiddos to their 40 book challenge!! I created a PowerPoint presentation to introduce my students to Bill and Kelly, my imaginary friends who each wanted to join the local basketball team. Bill was busy and just didn’t have time to practice, but Kelly practiced each day and she made the team! I explained that our goal was to become better readers and we could reach that goal by practicing our reading during independent reading time and at home, too! My students seemed so excited and I am too! #reading #readeveryday #read #readingteacher #elateacher #iteach #iteachfifth #iteach456 #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #bookwhisperer #40bookchallenge

CURRENTLY READING ALL THE BOOKS Today my kids finally had the chance to explore our classroom library chapter book selection and pick out good fit books for themselves. Once they picked their books, they got a dry erase marker and put their book title and the date with their name. My kids were so excited to “write on the door!” They definitely took ownership of the book they chose and were excited to look through the library. I can’t wait to see how much they love their books!

And now, for one of the most important parts of our room... the CLASSROOM LIBRARY! Lots and lots of choice for our readers because that’s the best way to find great books. We start #booktalks on Tuesday- my choice is EngiNerds by @jarrettlerner- AND have already worked up to 6 minutes of #readtoself time (start small and build!). “Reading is like bathing, you need to do it everyday!”—@hellojenjones •

Today's library holds! :

The Room on Rue Amelie because my book whisperer, @carla_calvert, recommended it.

:
Long Way Gone because @the_joyful_reader and I were discussing Charles Martin's books recently and it reminded me how much I love his writing.
:
:
The Lost Vintage because the cover review said if you enjoyed The Nightingale, then this book is for! I loved the Nightingale, so hopefully I will love this one as well. :
:
I seem to have a French theme going in my reading right now. My current read takes place in France and 2 /3  of these do as well.

Book whisper: this is a fun and unpretentious read. I found myself smiling at Fleming’s playful style and remembering the musical it inspired. As things go, I actually didn’t know there was a book at all! Imagine my surprise when I came across the title and then, to top it all, I find out it was written by the author of James Bond! Available at the Speak Up Library.

Guys, do you like world unsolved mysteries?

I do like them but I'm not absolutely crazy about it. This book actually belongs to my partner but I have sneeky reads time to time. It's really cool book with all the main mysteries such as Atlantis, Eldorado, the Bermuda triangle and much more! I mentioned these three because they are my all time favourites.

Review!! Now I don't normally post reviews about teaching books... but this one was so amazing and inspiring to read! I fell in love with it after the intro. I am taking it to heart and giving what Mrs. Miller has to say a solid effort in my classroom this year to create more life-long readers! I don't want to give you too much information because I want you to read it too. Whether you are a teacher, a parent, or just an avid reader, I know you will find something valuable in this book. Anyone else read this?

I’m an independent study teacher kicking off the school year with my students this week, and that looks like me doing parent/teacher style conference meetings where I give out assignments, schedules, books, passwords, etc. Being all about the booknerd life, loving reading, literacy, and content knowledge, I’m forcing all my students to read a book each week, completely free choice. That’s it. No other requirements or parameters as long as mom and dad approve. No follow up assignments. Audiobooks count. The families have lots of questions because they can’t believe it really is so open ended and a book per week sounds huge. (On purpose! A la The Book Whisperer) One mom asked me this morning, “What if she’s reading a long book, like, you know, War and Peace?!?” I whipped my copy up from below the desk and was all, “Well, yeah, then that’s gonna take longer and that’s ok!” They just about died laughing and then they wanted to know if it was any good and what it’s about! •
Then when I was packing up, another teacher came over and eventually asked what I was reading, and if I’m a big reader. We discussed bookstagram, discovered a fellow bookstagramer we know in person, and she invited me to a book club! What?!?
•
War and Peace for the win! Bringing a book is always a good decision and you never know what fun things might happen because of it!

There are so many PD books teachers could read. People have asked me, if you could only afford a few, or if you only had time to read one, which would you recommend? It’s hard to choose because every book has value. But I will say, ELA teachers who are prioritizing reading, START HERE. This book will give you so much inspiration for choice reading in secondary. I read this book years ago, and it changed me! If you and your department are moving toward incorporating more flexibility into your reading curriculum, or if you’ve even just begun to consider it, this would make for a great book study. .

Now, tell me! What ONE PD book would you recommend? Which one has made the greatest impact on your teaching philosophy? What book do you come back to year after year?

Our students need to read and read widely. However, I would rather they just read every Marvel graphic novel, every teen romance, or whatever else suits their fancy and nothing else as long as they are reading. ................................................
I catch myself turning my nose up sometimes at some of the books my students are reading. I am a reader who knows my own taste. I know what I love and I would like to think I am a good judge of quality reading material. Yet every time I read one of these books I find so distasteful I am opened up to a new world that is moving the spirit of a child in my class. Even if it is that Fortnite manual from the bookfair that I do not understand.

Poonachi or The Story of a Black Goat is written by Perumal Murugan and translated by N. Kalyan Raman. Murugan’s ‘Poonachi’ is a fable about a goat that tells a story of humans, love, lust, pain and freedom.

It is not an easy task to depict human behaviour and emotions through animals, but Murugan has done it with conviction. The author puts the hardships of rural life in spotlight. There are heartbreaking moments, there is dilemma and confusion, there is hope and fear, there is sorrow and love — all emotions we think are limited to humans.

The protagonist is Poonachi, a black goat (doe) who comes as a fragile kid into the lives of an elderly couple like a mystery, and the story follows the course of her life. The old woman raised the little goat as her own child. Poonachi grows into a beautiful black goat, yet weak and fragile. Poonachi’s attainment of puberty and sexual awakening and her tiring & heartening experience of  labour and motherhood is beautifully narrated by the author. 
Poonachi gets too popular as high yielding, seven kid birthing goat. This traumatises her emotionally and physically. There are many instances in the novel where the readers comprehend the agony and pain faced by her. The author has clearly narrated how the systems work for the unfortunates and how humans react to various situations, including the superstitions.

Poonachi is an innocent tale of a female goat, yet the idea is universal and political. The story depicts how humans are chained in a system and struggles hard to come out of it.

Overall the novel is a thought provoking piece, that will keep you gripped till the end.

Bestselling author Daniel Silva, promoting his new book, The New Girl” was asked, “How do you manage to write a book a year?”
Silva answered, “All I do is write,” meaning, like me, it’s his day job and his  night job.” So maybe you don’t have that luxury, but if writing your story is your passion—take that advice and tweak it to your world!

If the pain is in you, it's in you. It follows you everywhere. Can't outrun it. Can't erase it. Can't push it away; it only comes back. The way I've been thinking, after all that's happened, maybe there's only one way to survive it. You have to let it in. Let it hurt you.

I just found this pic in my photos. Which kid did this?!? It reflects my current state, though. I’m putting my new book subscription business and @kidsdohavetimetoread podcast on hold. I’m running out of time to read all the amazing books  on my list and don’t have enough time to write!!!! I’ve been feeling pressure to monetize everything, expand, etc., but I’m getting away from my true passions: reading great books, interviewing authors, doing events, connecting people, and helping build a community of readers and writers, on and offline. Plus spending enough time with my adorable husband @morningmoonproductions and AMAZING 4 kids. So.... for the time being, I’m going back to one podcast @momsdonthavetimetoreadbooks, I’m suspending the book subscription business, and I’m going to focus on being a book whisperer (love recommending books!!!), a bibliotherapist (the right books help with all sorts of problems), an interviewer/podcaster, a writer, a connector, hopefully an influencer, and a true author cheerleader. Pivot central!!!! Wish me luck. #pivot #strategy #oops #regroup #passions #bookwhisperer #bibliotherapist #interviewer #community #authorfan #podcaster #writer #mother #mom #wife #life

How many of you do some type of professional development over the summer? ‍️I did for the first time in a while. Kelly Gallagher, The Book Whisperer, Strobel Summit Conference, and e2e Conference have all been a part of my growth.

At the end of my 6th year of teaching in May, I made a decision to spend part of my summer working on becoming a better educator. Not because I'm not a good teacher, but because I'm a learner and always want to improve. Also, this year I will be at a new school teaching a new grade level with a new curriculum. 
I am so glad I have invested time in these books and conferences. I feel like I have been reminded of practices I have forgotten and have definitely learned new ones that I want to try out.

It brought me joy to learn a bit this summer. Don't worry, I also had some amazing adventures unrelated to school!

Book Review 8

Book- A Rustic Mind

Author - @manali1988

I am choosy about poetry and I read poem few and far between and even then, tried and trusted poets.

So I was a little skeptical when I began reading this book.

To say I was wrong, would be an understatement.

This book has poems, long and short. They talk about everything from love to education to being woke and aware. 
The poems are sweet and to the point without being crass and unreadable. 
It has been a long time since I've read poems like this, and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it! 
The cute and colorful illustrations in every poem adds to the book! 🤷‍️ The poems need a little refining and a bit of editing other than that it was an absolute beautiful read!

Ratings  I'd recommend everyone to please go ahead and read and enjoy it! 
#qotd what poems/poets do you read or have read that are your absolute favorites? 
Ans- I've always wanted to read work of Dante.
