It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

Image

ImageI’ve been on the road with my family for the past few days, and doing most of the driving, so I haven’t had a lot of time to read. This has been very frustrating because I’m engrossed with Code Name Verity, by Elizabeth Wein. I’m about halfway through this amazing tale of two young women in England during World War II and their adventures as members of the WAAF (Women’s Auxiliary Air Force). I love Wein’s writing. It’s smart, witty, and full of images like this one: “Then the unbelievable bright loveliness of the English Channel, a shimmering, infinite lame cloth of silver and blue.” Amazing!

On a professional note, somewhere on my desk at home is Pathways to the Common Core, by Lucy Calkins, Mary Ehrenworth, and Christopher Lehman. Again, I’m only about halfway through, but what I’ve read so far has been very helpful in clarifying some of the murkier language of the CCSS. More on my thoughts about that after I get home.

  1. I’m reading Code Name Verity right now, too. I’m only about 1/3 through, but I’m really liking it so far. The narrator is one of the best I’ve read in a long time.

  2. I’m not usually able to read in the car without feeling sick.

    Have a great reading week!
