Hello, my friends and followers!
It has been QUITE the summer this year! There have been lots of surprises, lots of fun, and there has been lots of joy.
This summer’s “Lord of the Rings” Book Club has been absolutely wonderful, and my students have been filled with zeal, curiosity, and an absolute love of Tolkien. They have asked countless questions that are thoughtful, insightful, and incredibly detailed. Their final creative projects have been funny, outstanding, and… well, creative! Their attention to detail has been unmatched. I am extremely happy with this summer’s results, and I will certainly be blogging on them soon.
Another reason for my lack of posts is some schoolwork. This past semester, I have been focusing on the research portion of my Final Thesis for Signum University. I am focusing on textual analysis through modern fantasy series texts, which means I’ve had many, many books to read for my core texts in addition to secondary source material. Phase I is complete, and I am progressing onward to Phase II, which is the actual writing portion. Hopefully, I will have the headspace to write a blog post or two in the meantime.
Now, for announcements! Teachers Pay Teachers is having a sitewide sale for Back to School on August 3rd and August 4th. All of my products in The Literacy Learning Lounge will be 20% off both of those days. If there is a product that is in my Curriculum Resources page but not listed on TPT, then please contact me and I will make sure that you receive that resource with a 20% discount.
And finally, I am happy to announce that my husband and I will be expecting our first baby this coming February. We are very excited for our little bundle to come. I’ve already been buying all of the baby books and look forward to reading them when I have time (who knows when that will be?). I’ll be posting some book reviews in the future as I look through them.
Thank you, and have a happy end of summer!
