We are running out of Newbery Challenge videos. Yikes! Holy smokes! Can you believe it?!?!

Be sure to check out Mr. Schu’s latest and greatest Newbery video: Watch.Connect.Read.

  1. I’m listening to When You Reach Me while I’m unpack by my office & LOVE it! I’ll be getting a couple copies of the book-one to give away to a new teacher in the mentor program & then another copy for me to read/add to my library.
    I didn’t see your other video so enjoyed watching this one. I appreciate how you intentionally make your classroom a student space & not about you (ie. no teacher desk). I know your walls are blank but like you said, the walls will be covered by student work. Plus, I saw some amazing posters that I assume you will be framing & hanging. It was fun for me to see your classroom & refreshing to hear your comment when you zoomed in on your name plate (“this scares me”). You will be amazing!


  2. That was lots of fun to watch 🙂 And I LOVE how you showcase Ame’s book BOY & BOT 🙂

    I read WHEN YOU REACH ME shortly after it was announced that it won the Newbery. I own it and hope to someday read it again. LOVED it 😀


  3. I am writing an article about twitter book clubs. Who gets the credit for @titletalk? You? And Donnalyn? I want to give credit. I love the Sharp Schu book club too. I have learned so much this way and I want to thank you for all you do. Getting to be a part of your session at IRA was wonderful. Have a great year with your lucky students! 😉 marjiepodge
