Look What I Have to Read for My Class!!

I don't think I've shared with everyone that I'm back in school.

I've been an English teacher for 20 years, and right now I'm a "teacher on special assignment" as an instructional coach.  Although this job is a ton of work I thought it might be the right time to head back to school!

I have to decided to finally get my school media specialist license!

This is something I've wanted to do for awhile, and with a push and support from my husband I am!

I just finished my first class and now I move into one I' really excited about.  

It's titled:

Reading, Listening, Viewing Guidance & Selection of Resources for Children

It has a HUGE reading list, so I thought I'd share.  Here's what I'll be reading

We chose two

The Nonfiction Reading
Very excited about these!

Easy Readers?
I think that's what these will be.  This type will be new to me!

Early or Beginning Chapter Books? 

Middle Grade

Graphic Novels
This look fun!!


Picture Books
Most are award winners that were assigned

Lots of reading, but I'm looking forward to all of it!

Have you read any of them??


  1. Wow! What a great reading selection. Your class sounds awesome...can I take it too? haha. I am familiar with a few of these. My son loves the Piggie and Gerald books by Mo Williams. I see Lois Lowry is on your list and Joyful Noise is an outstanding book! Enjoy your class and reading all of the books!

  2. So many goodies! I think you are going to love this class! It is awesome that you are finally doing what you thought about for so long. :D

  3. That sounds like a wonderful class and I hope you have fun! The graphic novels look great. :)
