A mink, a Fink, a Skating Rink. What is a noun?
A Mink, a Fink, a Skating Rink: What Is a Noun? - Brian P. Cleary,Jenya Prosmitsky

Brian Cleary has done it again with his amazing book A mink, a fink, a skating rink: What is a noun. This is a book that introduces nouns in a kid friendly way. I would use this in my classroom to help my students understand nouns.

I LOVE this book! It is such a fun way to learn about nouns! Teachers can introduce this book to their students in K-3rd grade! Students love fun books, and this one offers a lot of interactive opportunities. For example, the teacher can have the students stand up, write down, or hold up some kind of representation (ex. a picture on a popsicle stick) every time they hear a noun! (P.S. this is a great way to do an informal assessment!)

This whole series is a very creative way to teach students language arts/grammar. This particular book acts as a hook to teach students nouns. It could also be used as a fun way to revisit nouns. Many people do not enjoy being taught the same lesson. This book would be great to ensure the students know what nouns are whether they have previously learned it or not. I would use this in a 1st-3rd grade classroom. The activities could be more geared to the older ages if they needed to be. One activity could be that the students become noun detectives. Each student could be given a magnifying glass that they use to find their nouns. Another activity that could be used for higher grades even would be to ask the students to stand every time they hear a noun. This requires the students attention and it will allow them to be interactive with the book.

Blog Tour w/Review - Gold Rush


Gold Rush
Jennifer Comeaux
Publication date: January 9th 2017
Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult

Liza Petrov’s entire life has been about skating and winning her sport’s top prize – Olympic gold. She’s stayed sheltered inside her bubble, not daring to stray from her destined path.
Until she meets Braden Patrick.
He makes her heart flutter with possibility, and for the first time she gets a taste of a normal teenage life. She longs to have both the boy and the gold, but stepping outside her bubble comes with a price. As Liza begins to question both her future and her past, can she stay focused on the present and realize her ultimate dream?
 
 
 
 
 

Braden & Liza meet at the concession stand over her siblings. The attraction is instant and mutual. Only this is going to be the busiest year of her life. Who has time for love?

Liza has never had a date, a kiss, a boyfriend. Rights of passage have been sacrificed for Olympic Gold. Is it worth it? Maybe this year she can find out how to make them both work out.

An amazing story with feels and emotions. I love, love, loved the skating and technical parts. This is one author I can count on to make it real. Did I mention there are feels? This book has everything for everyone, and a little bit more.
