Fantastic Friday: What did we read in Mrs. Mueller's room this week?

Fantastic Friday



Not only are my classes listening to and talking about Wonder, but each Friday I'll update what books students are finishing independently. I was inspired to do this by another blogger, David Etken, on Eat the Book blog. I was reviewing my own books because of Jen and Kellee's blog Teach Mentor Texts,  but I loved how Mr. Etken listed what his students were reading, too. David Etken's weekly review is called Ring-the-Bell Monday.

  1. Mrs. Mueller,

    What a fantastic group of books. I see a bunch of familiar books, but also some I don't know. I'll have to add some to my TBR pile.

    Thanks so much for making me part of your blog. Seeing this was a great way to end my week. I'm honored. I also know how much work you put in to get all those book cover. Yikes! I have an idea to make that easier...

    I noticed you had a student reading Origami Yoda. If anyone makes it through Fortune WOOKIE, I'd like to send along some temporary WOOKIEE tattoos.DM me your addy. :-)

  2. David,
    Any ideas would be appreciated! Some of my kids are reading their way through the Origami Yoda books quickly. I would LOVE to pass on some Wookiee tattoos to them! Take a look at my August 10th post. I met Tom Angleberger and have a signed copy of The Secret Fortune Wookiee! :-)

    1. Thanks, Caroline. It's neat to see the wise words the kids choose! They LOVE Wonder!
