It's Monday, What Are You Reading-August 31, 2015

Please visit the amazing blogs: Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers who host this terrific meme each week.

I was looking for some read alouds for the first week of school so as you can see, that is the theme of most of my reading last week. 

Not sure I will share with my 4th graders, but younger kiddos may like it. Lots of unbelievable and silly things happen on the way to school. 

Fun book about the craziness of the school bus. Could make a good springboard into talking about dos and don'ts. 

This one could have gone is a better direction for me, but it could make a good discussion starter.

Everyone has woken up with a case of the "grumpies" from time to time. This book takes a fun look at how to get rid of them. 

I love books about The American Revolution and look forward to reading this to my class. 

Currently Reading
Yes, I can hear you all telling me how amazing this book is. Glad to finally get to it. 


  1. I just pulled out The Three Grumpies last week thinking that I need to read it aloud early on!

  2. The Three Grumpies is a good idea, Gigi. I'll look for it. I loved Gingerbread for Liberty, this story of someone I've never heard of.

  3. The book cover alone for Ten Rules is hilarious! I remember the bus.... strong memories... not always good!

  4. The Benjamin Chaud book looks really nice! And Ten Rules too. Will have to be on the lookout for those.

  5. ClixSense is a very recommended work from home site.
