Favorite Subject

Hey everyone!

There's no feeling like when you finally settle in on the couch on Friday evening...am I right?

I am THRILLED that I managed to get a post up for all five days of Teacher Week 2015, over at Blog Hoppin. Today we're talking about our favorite subjects.

For me, there is my one and only love...READING. I'm so happy that my school decided to departmentalize last year, so I can focus on my passion, which is teaching everything literacy related!
My favorite part of teaching reading is read alouds. If I could figure out a way to read books all day long, I would do it. Is there anything better than when one of your more reluctant readers is begging you to read just one more chapter?

My nose was permanently stuck in a book when I was a kid. I read in the car, waiting in line, at restaurants...anywhere. Come to think of it, I'm still pretty much like that! In honor of that, and in the spirit of killing two birds with one stone, I'm also linking up with Five for Friday to share my absolute favorite books from when I was a kid.

Oh, how I loved The Babysitter's Club! I still remember going to Book Stop once a month to pick up the newest copy. I wish I had saved mine...some of my students last year were really getting into the series! Stacey was my favorite, but I really wished I could pull an outfit together like Claudia, lol!

I have read Harriet the Spy more times than I have any other book. In fact, if you asked me what my favorite book is today, I would probably tell you Harriet the Spy. I connected a lot with Harriet back in the day...she wanted to be a writer, she had a close group of friends and didn't understand the "popular" crowd, she liked observing things in great detail...basically just like me!

I also loved all of the Ramona books by Beverly Cleary. It really makes me happy whenever I see a kid pick one of these up. I love that they are still relatable to this day!

What could I say about Charlotte's Web that hasn't been said already? I'm so excited to use this for a novel study later on this year with my 3rd graders.

Another Beverly Cleary favorite. I think this book may have been my introduction to epistolary novels, which I love to this day. As a total book geek, the idea that you might become pen pals with your favorite author was very intriguing to me!

Thanks for reading! Don't forget to link up at Blog Hoppin' and Doodle Bugs Teaching!
