July Currently

I happened upon the Oh' Boy 4th Grade blog and the Currently monthly feature. Here's my take! This was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed Farley's sense of humor and overall style. If we lived in the same state, we'd probably be buds. :o)

For the reads, I picked Because of Winn-Dixie because I always loved to read it with really over-the-top Southern accents. I'm not sure why I always heard the voices with Southern accents in my head; maybe it was the trailer they lived in reminding me of growing up in rural Georgia. For the professional go-to book, I had a few books I would really return to over and over when I taught 4th grade, but the one I pretty much wore out was Skill Building Morning Jumpstarts by Deborah Poston. It was a reproducible book, not a methodology book, but I used it constantly. Now that I'm in Ed Tech, I haven't really found any books I can go back to over and over. Technology changes so quickly that it's hard for print material to keep up. I use the ISTE NETS a lot, and the learning standards for my level (preschool), and other than that, I go to Twitter when I need help.

  1. I love the book "Because of Winn Dixie"! I would like to know how your Savannah trip goes. I would like to go there for a weekend.

  2. Can't believe you have to go back in July! When I taught in Louisiana, we had to do that sometimes. This year, I don't have to go back until Aug. 20th. I'm loving it!

  4. Maybe I'll try reading Winn-Dixie to my kiddos this year. I'm in the mood to try something different! :) Thanks for the suggestion.
