Here is what I added to my stack this week.
I got both a print and Kindle copy of Allegiant by Veronica Roth. The print copy was immediately donated to my Middle School/High School Media Center and was checked out as soon as my aide got it into the system. The first reader has already told me he didn't like it as well as Insurgent. As for myself, I still haven't read Insurgent which is also on my Kindle.
I got four review books this week too.
The Great Trouble by Deborah Hopkinson was sent to me by the author. This book was released on September 10 and is described as "Part medical mystery, part survival story, and part Dickensian adventure."
The Rule of Three by Eric Walters was one I asked for from Macmillan. This book will be released on Jan. 21, 2014 and is a post-Apocalyptic Science Fiction story.
Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira was a surprise arrive by my Macmillan contact. This contemporary will be released on April 1, 2014.
Not pictured because it doesn't have a cover yet is Plus One by Elizabeth Fama. I had requested this one from Macmillan. It will be released on April 8, 2014.
The Common Core Lesson Book K-5: Working with Increasingly Complex Literature, Informational Text, and Foundational Reading Skills by Gretchen Owocki is being used by the fifth grade teachers at my school.
Teaching the Critical Vocabulary of the Common Core: 55 Words that Make or Break Student Understanding by Marilee Sprenger was also recommended by those teachers.What did you add to your stack this week?
