I made a list..
I always make a list. One of the best lists I have made is a Google Sheets database of my favorite recommendations for my sixth graders. When the Stay-At-Home order was put in place in Massachusetts, parents reached out to me for recommendations for their students. I asked my usual questions (last book they read? last book they liked? etc.) and appreciated that they came to me. What I wished was that I had a list to pull from and that I had a list to direct them to. I do not want to stop the questions; I want to give better answers. So, enjoy, the work in progress.
I intend to spotlight some of these books in the blog.
This is the first post on my new blog. I’m just getting this new blog going, so stay tuned for more. Subscribe below to get notified when I post new updates.
