Thanks to Alisha for letting me blab here!
Let's talk books! I love reading and want that love instilled in children. During read to self time or SSR in the classes I sub in, you'll often find me reading a book too. One time a kiddo started talking to someone and got shushed with a, "Ms. T is reading and you don't want to disturb her concentration!"
I'm always on the look out to see what the is 'in' with children and YA books. My local newspaper has a section of the latest popular books that I check. I also see what the kids are reading in class to get an idea.
My favorite way though is a book recommendation chart!
Here's a variety I found online!

So the kiddos I subbed for had one in their room and were complaining it filled up. I created a new one that morning and look at it in the afternoon! And yes, most of them are in Spanish as it's a bilingual class :)
So I've created a personal one kids could put in their book box/bag, desk, or folder! Four choices to choose from and they're super simple, plain Jane :)
