It's Monday! What Are You Reading? July 28th edition

Check out It's Monday! What Are You Reading? at Teach Mentor Texts.

What I'm Reading

The Scraps Book is a behind-the-scenes look at how Lois Ehlert creates her wonderful books. There are some excellent spreads in this book that will inspire budding writers of all ages.

Lily the Unicorn is a delightful character who loves life. Her challenge comes from Roger the Penguin who is not fond of many things. This would be a terrific book to use at the beginning of the year for students who are having a hard time transitioning back to school.

Articles that everyone should read

Why Do Americans Stink at Math? - Common Core standards are not the problem!

How a Radical New Teaching Method Could Unleash A Generation of Genuises - Article from Wired magazine about a dedicated teacher in Mexico who has found a better way of teaching.


  1. I like your idea of including professional articles here too. Had read the NY Times one already this week, but will check out Wired as well, thanks!

  2. Thank you for linking up to IMWAYR :) And welcome to the community!
    Thank you for the articles! I have them open now to read. They both sound intriguing.

    Happy reading this week! :)

  3. I liked The Scraps Book very much. Thanks for sharing the PD article! Have bookmarked it to read later.
