My new blog!

Not that much different really:)

Change of Name

I am now posting under The Library Nook and may also change the title of my blog, my aim is to tie it all in with a website I am putting together. I may also change the location of this blog as well but will let people know!

Bookish things

I have just finished a brilliant childrens book called Triskellion which was great although I have to wait until next year for the next one in the sequel. Over the past few months I have gone through spurts of reading and then not managed to pick anything up at all! I have started my new job which is great but still hard work while I get used to all the different systems etc- it is so different from my old school! I didn't realise how picking up classes mid way through the year would be so hard but it was! So I am looking forward to september when I can start afresh with my new classes. My new school is very different in that I have different classes for different subjects where as in my old school I had one class of one age group for all subjects.

Anyway one exciting thing is I am setting up a book group for them and the children I have asked seem really excited about it!

I spent last night visiting everyones blogs and I have a list of about ten books that I want to read so thanks all! Good to see people are still discussing books and doing much better that me at it! ;)

Weather and books

A continued thank you to everyone who has been sending the weather reports, the children are enjoying the geography project so much!

On a booky note I am currently reading The Memory Keepers Daughter but am going very slowly:) I have been reading a lot of teaching books instead and have been working with an Advanced Skills Teacher who has inspired me lots!

Help needed from people not in the UK- something for my class

I teach primary school children and one of our geography units this term is about connecting with the world where basically we have to communicate with someone in another country and find out about the weather there etc. Ideally I should do it with another school but I just don't know where to start with that so I thought I could do it with individuals instead! If there is anyone out there who doesn't mind sending me
- daily preferably or every few days reports to what the weather is like where you live- this would be for a week or two beginning this week. The 'report' would only need to be brief ie an indication of temperature, what you see and what it feels like
- a link to your local newspaper if possible so we can get a feel of the area you live.and thats it, I would be really grateful!

You wouldn't have to give your name or anything like that and in return I would be very grateful My kids may like to type you a thank you letter so if I could have a way of emailing you that would be great too!

My plan is to have a map on our wall where we track the different weathers around the world on a daily basis for a week or so. Sorry for the long post!
