It's Monday Again...What Are You Reading?

Please visit the amazing blog: Teach Mentor Texts

This Week I read.... 
 The One and Only Ivan            
by Katherine Applegate                     
One of this year's Global Read Aloud choices and it is fantastic! 


 I Want My Hat Back   
by Jon Klassen
This was a fun read aloud in our class this week.                                             

This week I plan to finish Jeremy Bender vs The Cupcake Cadets by Eric Luper.              

What are you reading?


  1. Two fun reads! Ivan was a great read and I Want My Hat Back was a good one too. Enjoy your week of reading.

  2. I delayed reading Ivan for so long, despite all the buzz, because I just didn't get the appeal. And then I sat down and read the whole thing in a night :P Funny how emotionally involved you become with a cast of animal characters, but it's true!

  3. I think I need to get I Want My Hat Back after the reviews I have read. I started One and Only Ivan and I can't wait for it to be the next novel read aloud in my reading classroom.

  4. I read Ivan over the summer and am reading it with my class this month along with the Global Read Aloud. Love love LOVE this book to much!

  5. You read two brilliant books this week- Ivan and Hat Back are phenomenal. I hope this upcoming week is as great :)
