Welcome back from Spring Break! The rainy start to our time off was perfect for settling in with a book or two. I finished the first two books of Gillian Anderson's The Earthend Saga and started the third. I'm also reading Clarissa Pinkola Estés' pocket storybook, The Faithful Gardener: A Wise Tale About That Which Can Never Die.
Wangari Maathai: The Woman Who Planted Millions of Trees is a great read-aloud to share with older elementary students to begin a biography unit. It concludes with a bibliography and website resources, so teachers can segue with ease into a discussion of nonfiction text features for research.
It's Monday! What did you read over spring break?
