The Book Whisperer, a.k.a. Donalyn Miller, has completed yet another incredible year with her fantastic readers. Her 92 sixth grade students read 5,240 books this year, which is an average 57 books per reader! You can follow her blog here. And teachers and parents, if you haven’t read “The Book Whisperer” you need to do so.
Heavy rain moved into the Portland (Pourland) area last night, but it’s clear this morning. It doesn’t make much of a difference to me, because I’m in my office writing.
The downstairs remodel is coming to a slow end. I’ll include some photos here when everything is back in place. It will be great to have nothing more to do to the house… Ha! There are always things to do. But it will be nice not to be “doing” anything to the house over the summer.
And the grand experiment continues…working on more than one book at a time. So far, I’ve restricted myself to working one book on one day, not switching between books on any given day. Two are started and I may start a third today or tomorrow. Again, don’t do this at home! It’s dangerous territory.
