What I'm Loving Wednesday

Hello! I'm linking up with BigTime Literacy for What I'm Loving Wednesday to tell you about my brand new obsession and a few other loves in my world.  I'm absolutely, AB-SO-LUTE-LY (I can't stress this enough) loving The Reading Strategies Book by Jennifer Seravallo!  It will be my new go-to resource, besides Jan Richardson's The Next Step in Guided Reading.  

When I saw the Amazon package on my doorstep last week, I started clapping with giddiness!  I pre-ordered the book back in April, so it's been tough to wait.  The minute I started flipping through it, I knew this would be my new favorite professional text.  I posted a few pictures on my Instagram and Twitter account to seek out some possible Book Study participants.  It looks as if a Book Study will be under way sometime in the near future.  We're thinking August would be a useful time before school gets underway.  Stay tuned!

Another thing I'm loving on this beautiful Wednesday is the weather. I love long summer days.  Today, the sun was out along with a slight breeze.  It was a bit warm, but not as humid as I've experienced before, so I'll take it.  When I got in my car this afternoon, this is what I saw on my dashboard.  Yikes! 
No matter the case, it was still a wonderful day to have some Mama-Daughter time at the park, while my hubby and son spent some time together.  We flip-flop days so we can "fill the emotional tank" of our kiddos.  One on one time is always nice, but we make sure to have tons of family time, too.  Camping trips, here we come! :)
I'm making sure my twins don't have any summer slide in their hunger for books (even though they're only 3 years old) by visiting the library often.  I'm loving the library theme for the kids this year!  The League of Super Readers is a theme that certainly caught my son's attention.  He's a fan of Spiderman, even though he's never seen an episode or movie with Spiderman. He's loves Spiderman because of a shirt he received from his Aunt, which he happened to be wearing when we spotted Spiderman. Besides seeing a life-sized Spidey, my son also thought it was "way cool" the librarians were wearing capes.  What I found cool was seeing the shelves divided up for kids by grade-level interests.  It provided the opportunity for me to find some new titles for the various grades I service.  Cute stuff happening in our local library. :)
Last, but not least, on this Wednesday, I'm loving the VW bus my kiddos got for a Christmas gift.  Recently, it's been sparking some imagination in the minds of my little ones.  The bus has been used for all sorts of things, including an extended fort (yesterday) and, my favorite, a reading nook (today). 

Well, that's it for this edition of What I'm Loving Wednesday!  Don't forget to link up with Michelle over at BigTime Literacy to share your loves for the day!
