Sea of Tranquility: A Novel | Emily St. John Mandel
post image

I had a wonderful start to the year with my reading. My favorite was the first- Sea of Tranquility. In between all this I‘ve been working in A Tale of Two Cities and Great Expectations for my freshman honors class.

We started our new 6th grade Lit Lunch book today and had a very promising start! I always open sign ups to the whole 6th grade whenever we start a new title and had 15 students show up today - since its a class of about 50, I'm pleased with that! #schoollibraries #teachersoflitsy #librariansoflitsy

I have the best group of 6th graders in my book club this year! Today we finished Unplugged by Gordan Korman and they LOVED it - his books are always a hit and for good reason. #raisingreaders #schoollibraries #librariansoflitsy #teachersoflitsy

A Christmas Carol | Charles Dickens

Reading this with my Honors 9 students for the first time. Should I be ashamed to admit that I‘ve never actually read it before? With my regular 9 students we are watching the Muppet Christmas Carol- same thing right? 🎄#Dickens #classics #teachersoflitsy #christmas

Book number one from my #TBRWrappedUp stack was a success. It's a very cute Christmas romance involving a Christmas tree lot. I do wish I read this book when I was younger. However, I think my current students will love it. To the classroom library it goes!

I‘m looking for some help Litsy friends. I‘m not really a sports person, but I‘ve worked over the years to add more sports books to my mostly 6th-8th grade class library. Yesterday I had a specific request for books about girls in sports and realized I‘ve got very few books to recommend. So, if you‘ve got great #MiddleGrade suggestions other than the few books shown here, please send them my way!

Daisey @LibrarianRyan You‘ve always got great recs, can you share a few for this topic? 3mo
LibrarianRyan Wow. I‘ll need to look. I can come up with authors but most wrote about boys. Let me see what I can find. Cheer is the only one off the top of my head about cheerleading. 3mo
LibrarianRyan Roller girl, breaking the ice, skating shoes , tumble, love double Dutch, up for air, the distance to home. The girl who threw butterflies, lupe wing won‘t dance, taking up space, #great wall of Lucy Lu, there was a series called Kicks, Ana on the edge, There are just not enough sports books with girls. Ughh 3mo

Sharpeipup There's bound to be one about gymnastics but I cannot think of it right now. 3mo
sblbooks This one is on my TBR. 3mo
CarolynM Not sure if they‘re middle grade (we don‘t divide schools the same way as the US) but there is some good Australian girls sport books around. The Netball Gems series (about netball, obvs) might not be relevant but Ellyse Perry has a soccer one as well as her cricket books 3mo
CarolynM Also Sam Kerr‘s Kicking Goals series is about soccer 3mo
CarolynM This is a good covering all sorts of sports (using Australian women as examples) 3mo
Daisey @LibrarianRyan Thank you, I‘ll be looking these up. Your answer at least made me feel a little better about my very short list. Definitely agree we need more of these! 3mo
Daisey @Sharpeipup @sblbooks Thanks! I‘ll be checking some of these out! 3mo
Daisey @CarolynM Thanks! I‘m not sure how easy a few of these will be for me to find to check out before buying, but I really appreciate another perspective! 3mo
Itchyfeetreader I M not great at ages is this one appropriate? 3mo
Itchyfeetreader This also has female as well as male perspectives. Adult book but pretty accessible although not sure on if there is any profanity in there 3mo
Daisey @Itchyfeetreader Thanks, I‘ll take a look. 3mo
