Now that I have declared the challenge...

Well, I put the challenge out for the first set of 5th grade students who I met today that will be coming to Ridgeview next school year.
The challenge is to read more books this summer than me.  Now, I am challenging myself as well.  I hope that they will follow this blog along with twitter and instagram.  This will help us stay connected over the summer.

I hope to keep everyone reading this summer.  I have to finish the book that I have been working on for quite a while.  I am getting bogged down.  It is pretty good, but I just can't stay focused.  See, it happens to all of us as readers.  It is not the book--it is me.  Now, it sounds like I am breaking up with the book.  But, I digress...

I will keep this blog up to date with what I am reading so that others can get suggestions.  Also, I hope that others will want to share what they are reading as well.

A student shared this video with me a while back.  I love it though it is definitely odd.  The sentiment fits me...I'm reading a book.  Hope you enjoy it.

So...it is time

It is time to resurrect the blog once again so that I can tell others what I am reading over the summer.

I have a challenge for the students at Ridgeview--students who will be attending Ridgeview in 2014-15.

Here is a quick video about the challenge.

The question is...will you accept the challenge?
