Media Update

There are some very exciting things happening around here. Mrs. Coats and I just started a 20 Time project with her 1st period. They have selected some great projects and goals to work on this semester. I am excited to see where they take these.

I have not written any book reviews in a while, so I thought I'd share a few books that I have read recently. I have read both The Distance Between Us and On the Fence by Kasie West and I really, really liked them. Along the same lines, I read My Life Next Door and enjoyed it as well. The girls LOVE them. I also read Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality by Elizabeth Eulberg and although I normally like books by her, I was not a huge fan of this one. I just finished Little Women and Me and I liked it. I thought the premise was neat and having read the original I enjoyed the new take on a classic. It did drag in a few spots and I can see how struggling readers would have difficulty. Next up is the 8th grade book club book, All Our Yesterdays.

We will have the Bremen Academy Book Fair February 9-13, so please come by and check that out.

BMS Book Club will meet again Feb 20th. 6th and 7th grades are reading Michael Vey: Prisoner of Cell Block 25 and 8th grade is reading All Our Yesterdays.
