Monday Book Tally 10/1
Last week, I mentioned Rebecca Stead’s Liar and Spy during a mini-lesson. I finished it this week, and my post-it work involving Seurat’s painting definitely paid off! It will be in our class library this morning. I’m eager to hear some of your opinions about the book. I would also encourage you to follow the trail of post-its that I started with you in class.
This week, I’m reading some non-fiction. I bought Tony Wagner’s new book called Creating Innovators. I’m going to hear Wagner speak later this month, and his new book sounds interesting. I bought the e-book version that also has embedded videos and links. I like how a book about innovation is itself innovative!
So, now it’s your turn… I know from our discussions that many people finished books in the last week. Here’s our tally:
Core 1: 9
Core 2: 12
Core 3: 21
Core 4: 10
