Monday Linky from Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers!
So excited the Newbery awards are out! The list included some of the books I've blogged about this year!
Winner of the John Newbery Medal: The Crossover! I just loved The Crossover by Kwame Alexander. I blogged about it here on January 4, 2015. You can find my ideas here. Great book for middle school. You can follow him on Twitter @kwamealexander He's super nice and his poetry is amazing. I just loved How to Read a Book in the Scholastic book Open a World of Possible (Free).
This is book is so beautiful. It is written and illustrated by award winning Yuyi Morales. It has very simple text and beautiful pictures. Here's the link to my more detailed blog post, more pictures there, too. Use this with younger kids.
This is what I'm currently reading. Lyrical text. I just began so I can't say much except I can see why it's a National Book Award Winner and a John Newbery Honor Book.
Congrats to all the winners!! What an amazing honor.
