I need to stay away from bookstores and Scholastic.com! Here's what I bought in the last few weeks. I am so excited about what I found and they were all on sale in addition to my teacher discount!
The End of Molasses Classes by Ron Clark...check out my book review on the Teacher2Teacher blog...and buy it right away - you will love it!
A Glove of their Own by Lisa Funari-Willever - Think The Sandlot movie - a portion of the proceeds go to foundations that provide sporting goods to children in need! This is a great companion to Roberto Clemente, Pride of the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Teammates by Tiki and Ronde Barber...a real life story of two brothers who made their dreams come true on the football field
The Twelve Days of Christmas in New Jersey by Rich Rossi - I am definitely going to read this before winter break next year. Then I'm going to have my students create their own about the Ten Days of Winter Break!
