t is Monday and again I am joining in the meme over at Mentor Texts.Hop on over and join in over at the Mentor Text Blog. Just click on the picture
I managed two novels this week - mainly because they were short ones and I liked them so I had a bit of oomph to read them. They were:
While I am not the sort to want to face into the situations these two characters faced - believe me I wouldn't survive- however they both challenged me to be more resilient in the wild frontiers of my own life!
I also read Chapter 2 of 10 Things Every Writer Needs to Know which was about using mentor texts. This chapter gave me more insight into using mentor texts and the way the author shared how he - Jeff Anderson - uses them has made me realise I need to do more of this, it will be a goal for my new school year in 2013. I'm from New Zealand remember, our school year closes in December.
What might I read this coming week, well I'm waiting on books, so I think I will read what I have sitting here: Let The Circle Be Unbroken by Mildred D. Taylor, the sequel to Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry. The Scopio Races by Maggie Stievater has just arrived from Scholastic book club, so may also get into that.
