Teacher Tuesday

Today’s good sport is Amanda Furman, who teaches elementary English as a Second Language in rural Virginia. She blogs (when she remembers to!) here and her class blog can be found here.

Amanda, please fill in the blank:
You should never read and (blank) at the same time.

You should never read and walk the dog at the same time.

If you were invited to be on Oprah, what book would you bring for her to read?

Wonder by RJ Palacio

What is the funniest book you’ve read?
The Georgia Nicholson series by Louise Rennison.  Laugh out loud, make sure you aren’t in public funny!

What is the saddest?
A tie between Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls and The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Favorite reading snack/beverage?
I usually don’t eat/drink and read at the same time, but if I did, it would be a Pepsi and probably pretzels.  Something that wouldn’t get my pages all smudgy, like Doritos.

What’s next on your TBR list?
I don’t even want to look!  My personal pile is growing by the day!  However, next up with my 4th graders is Captain Underpants.  I’m not sure about the other grades!  

Teachers, librarians, reading coaches, principals, custodians, lunch ladies, anyone with school connections: Please play along! Email me here and I’ll get you the questions so you, too, can be featured on Teacher Tuesday.

    Ah, more books for my staggering TBR list. Every week I find books here I’ve never heard of but are too tempting to ignore. Thanks for the fun interview.
