First of all: Happy Birthday to me! Today is my birthday, and even though I am not a small child, I still get a little thrill every year it rolls around. Tonight I am going to dinner with my dad and stepmom, and I received a really awesome storage cart from them that I will be using in my classroom next year. You know you’re a teacher when you request things like that for your birthday, right?
Thursday I went to a class to learn the Daily 5/Cafe strategies to use next year in my classroom, and I am completely overwhelmed. It’s just a LOT to take in, a lot to get ready, and it’s a good thing we don’t go back until August 1st. I have plenty to do over the summer! But I think it will be useful and also very beneficial to my students, so I’m hoping that once I get into the whole thing it won’t be as hard as I’m making it out to be in my head. Here’s hoping, at least!
This week was a small haul for me. I picked up some e-books that were on sale, as well as a sequel I’m looking forward to reading, and only requested one e-galley. Baby steps! So, here’s my haul!
- Dance of the Red Death (Masque of the Red Death #2) by Bethany Griffin
- Also Known As by Robin Benway (on sale on Amazon)
- Hereafter (Shadowlands #2) by Kate Brian (NetGalley)
- Darker Still by Leanna Renee Hieber (on sale on Amazon)
- False Memory by Dan Krokos (on sale on Amazon)
Thanks to Disney Book Group for the e-galley! All of the others are still on sale on Amazon at last check – I didn’t spend over $2.99 for any of them – if you’re interested.
