Welcome Back!

Happy First Day of School!

I know some of you have been back to school for a while, and some of you don’t go to school anymore…. so, Happy Tuesday to you!

This fall, my children’s literature students have a great list of books to choose from for their literature circles. It’s a good mix of some old favorites and some new stars. Here they are:
