Your Heinemann Link Round-Up for the Week of November 1–7


Time for another round-up of links. We're not responsible for any typos in the blogs we link to. We're totally responsible for any typos here. Cheers!

These links are interviews with educators, posts from our authors' and friends' blogs, and any interesting, newsworthy item from the past seven days. Check back each week for a new round of finds!

At her blog, Pernille Ripp wrote about great picture books to use in the context of Notice And Note signposts:

We are about to start our nonfiction focus for the year so I am so glad I found some great again and again moments in The Boy Who Loved Math by Deborah Helligman with pictures by LeUyen Pham. The way the numbers are colored throughout the pages will definitely catch the eye of students.

Donalyn Miller wrote about our reading and writing lives using soil as an extended metaphor:

We don’t commit to reading and writing once in our lives. We recommit to reading and writing again and again. We travel between seasons of dedication and neglect. Seasons of interest and apathy. Seasons of high productivity and low. We wander through fallow seasons and benefit long term from the rest. When reading and writing call to us again, we return.

"Let's dare to be amazed again," says Kari Yates:

I know this work can be exhausting and overwhelming at times. But it can also be joyful, celebratory, and uplifting if we let it.  What if we all start actively looking for and naming the abundant joy that surrounds us every day? What if we gently but persistently train our brains to look for evidence of the good around us rather than evidence of the strife. The joy of childhood is around us in great abundance.  We may just need to polish our lenses every now and then to notice more of it.
