#NCBD! Do you see the cover of Middlewest #15?!? Spectacular. Young recently announced that Middlewest will end with Issue #18—can‘t believe we only have 3 more issues! 😭 Fortunately, he also said he and Jorge Corona have two new projects they are working on together. Yay! Also picked up Family Tree #4, Undiscovered Country #4, Runaways #30 (sooo excited to see Rainbow Rowell next week!!!), & Wolverine #1 with the Skottie Young variant cover.

#18 of my year.

Caffeinated_Reader Ugh high school and all the drama that comes with it lol honestly I had a pretty great high school experience but did deal with bullies my junior year, I was a bully :/ luckily I too changed and got out of that ugly behavior. This was a pretty great and relatable story. 2w

Wonderful! So glad I read this for the #readharderchallenge #18 and the #readingwomenchallenge #4. Thoughtful, empowering, inclusive; this book is one every kiddo (and parent) would enjoy! The illustrations really add to the story, highly recommend!

A few days ago I introduced my personal challenge for the year - a monthly #BookSpin ! The concept is simple - make a list of 20 books languishing on your TBR. On the 2nd of every month, I draw a number, & you read that book sometime during the month!

January's number - 18!! I get to read the tagged book! Be sure to tag me with the book you get to read, and let me know when you read it!
@imyril @llwheeler @Lcsmcat @Butterfinger @mabell

TheAromaofBooks And just a reminder - sometimes books linger on the TBR because, deep down, we don't really want to read them. Please don't feel like you have to force yourself to read the book you drew. The challenge is to give the book a chance! If your review of the book is to say you bailed on it for any reason, that is A-OK. No pressure here. A DNF still means the book is off your list, and that's the goal. Happy reading!! ❤ (edited) 2mo
ljuliel Good idea, and good luck 👍🏼🍀 2mo
robinb Great idea! Have fun! 😊 2mo

veritysalter What a great idea @TheAromaofBooks I have an out of control TBR pile and am too much of a mood reader. I shall definitely give this a go. 2mo
TheAromaofBooks @veritysalter - I would love to have you join! I'll be sure to tag you when it's time to post February's 20 books!! And if you want to join this month, you still can - just count off books on your shelf until you get to 18, or something along those lines. 😊 2mo
veritysalter @TheAromaofBooks I‘m ok for January; I‘ve just started European Travels for Monstrous Gentlewomen, it‘s 700 pages, so I may be a while. 2mo
TheAromaofBooks @veritysalter - oh my goodness, that is a SERIOUS chunkster!!! Good luck! 2mo
llwheeler Woohoo! I'm excited for my Jan read - hope you enjoy Around the World! I read it as a kid and liked it - I think it was an abridged edition though. 2mo
mabell I couldn‘t be more happy with my #18! (Though I only chose 20 books I would be excited to get to, so no matter what it will be a win-win 😄) 2mo
TheAromaofBooks @llwheeler - My dad is a big fan of Verne, so I read several of his books growing up, but somehow never got to this one. It's also been years since I've read 20,000 Leagues, so I'm hoping to get to that one this year as well. 2mo
TheAromaofBooks @mabell - I like your strategy!!! 😁 2mo
LaraReads This is a really great idea! 2mo
TheAromaofBooks @LaraReads - thanks!! We'll be doing another spin on February 2, so you can feel free to jump in if you like!! 2mo
Linsy I love this!!! Definitely joining in for February. 1mo
TheAromaofBooks @Linsy - I will be drawing the number this Sunday (Feb 2) so if you decide to post a list, be sure to tag me and I will let you know what the magic number is!! 😁 1mo

Of course I immediately thought of sonnet 18 for this prompt, so I decided to look and see which others fit. I decided I like 130. #poetrymatters #compare @TheSpineView

TheSpineView I know #18 is what I normally think of. Yet this is beautiful too!💜💜💜 Good choice! 6mo
IndoorDame I did a search on Gutenberg-tm 🤷🏻‍♀️ turns out there are 6 that actually include the word compare, I also really liked 142. 6mo

Out of My Mind | Sharon M. Draper

Pickpick

This RF novel written by Sharon Draper is a great read for a literature circle in the classroom. Melody is a young girl who has Cerebral Palsy and can‘t talk, or walk. Her family is there to support her and believe that she can achieve great things. Find out how Melody competes on the schools quiz team and how smart she actually is. I think the class can learn a lot about inclusion and accepting everyone around them with this book. #UCFLAE3414SU19

Macker11 I think the class can relate to UDL 4.2 optimize access to tools and assistive technologies. The class can spend some time using a board like Melody and try to communicate only using what is given to them. Also, this relates to ESOL #18, TPR - student actions. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/blog-posts/kriscia-cabral/teaching-out-my-mi... this resource has great advice for before, during and after reading this book in a classroom! 7mo
britt_brooke Such a perfect photo! 7mo
Bshelton27 I really like your UDL strategy. It‘s crazy what a turn around Melody has as soon as she has a voice and can finally be heard. It‘s almost like everyone doesn‘t know how to act! Love the picture!!! 7mo

DeannaP This is an amazing book and amazing photo! I love how your activity is from scholastic and contains information on what to do before, during, and reading that book! 7mo
Kcompton2912 I love your class a activity with the boards. It can really help students who do not have any experience with a communication board see what it is like first hand. Helping them work with classmates in the future that do use communication boards. 7mo
BeverlyMel loved this book! 7mo
gabbymartin @Macker11 This is the perfect background for this book and I haven‘t even read it! I like the website you posted with this, it gives a really good outline for discussions when reading this book with our students in the classroom. Love this! 7mo
fquadri I love the idea of incorporating technology while conducting a lesson plan with this book. That will definitely engage students and make them want to participate in activities willingly. The message that this book gives off seems very inspirational and I will be looking into it. Thanks for sharing! 7mo
DMoux Such a creative picture! This book sounds so interesting; inclusion is definitely something that needs to be implemented in the classroom more and more! The article also seems useful to scaffold discussion in the classroom. Great job! 7mo
Summerm Wow, this book sounds very interesting! I love the photography you used to convey the meaning behind this book! 7mo
BooknerdsLife I‘ve heard great things about this book but haven‘t gotten to it yet🙈 & what a lovely photo 😍 7mo
DrSpalding Now that we know it is going to be a movie at some point, I am even more excited that you took the time to read this one. Excellent resource! Being that it is about a student with special needs, this book automatically aligns with universal design principles and English learner strategies. 7mo
