Books, Books, Books!: Going to a conference where there are vendors is dangerous for me. I should leave my credit card at home. However, one cannot resist the draw of new books for the classroom and let me tell you -- I found some amazing deals! If you have never heard of the company Books4Schools, you must check them out. They sell the overstock of many bookstores and most of their books are $2 or under. I bought about 20 books on Thursday, but when I went back on Friday, all of their books were $1!! Needless to say, when I go back to the classroom on Monday, I will need to get a cart to wheel in the 60+ books I bought to add to our classroom library.
Most of these books came from Books4Schools, but some were also from the Scholastic store.
Voxer: I did it. I took the leap. At the encouragement of two very supportive friends, I put my hesitation aside and am now on Voxer. Let me tell you....I love it! I love hearing the voices behind the friends that I have connected with through Twitter and blogging -- their words of encouragement, a daily greeting, a funny story. If you are on Voxer or try it yourself, let me know so we can connect!
There are so many more things to celebrate this week, but I have a pile of books to get to. I hope your week was full of many celebrations too!
