What I’ve Been Reading January-April Edition

28 Apr

I have been reading quite a bit lately, so I thought it would be fun to start a regular post about what I’ve been reading outside of my normal book reviews:
First up, Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe by Max Lucado:
I really enjoyed this one-a sweet little read that didn’t take long and had a good message.  Very enjoyable, and I would read it again.  So, in other words-worth the read!  🙂
Next up, was Beyond all Dreams by Elizabeth Camden:
This was a book I tried to get on the review list for, and didn’t make it.  The book looked so interesting, I waited until I could check it out at the library, and I am glad I did.  One thing I really enjoy about Camden’s books is all of the historical content.  I always come away feeling like I have learned something about important times in our nation’s history, as well as enjoying a good book.  This was definitely a good book, and I would definitely read it again.  If you like historical fiction, with a bit of romance-this is a good one!
Finally, I realized there were a few Dee Henderson books I hadn’t read.  Gasp!  She is my favorite author, so I am not sure how I missed a few of these.  Anyway, I decided to do some catching up!
Taken by Dee Henderson:
This was a good book-I really like all her books-but it wasn’t one of my very favorites.  Still glad I read it though!
God’s Gift by Dee Henderson:
OK, I really liked this one.  It was another short read-one of Dee’s very first books.  It has a good storyline, and was fun to read. Great message about what to do when it seems like everything is going wrong, too.
I also completed two book reviews, which you can see here:
Where Trust Lies by Janette Oke
A Steadfast Heart by Tracie Peterson
Currently, I am working my way through Notes from a Blue Bike, and The Gifts of Imperfection, so more on those later.
So, there’s a peek at what I have been reading-hoped you enjoyed!

Pinterest Thursday-Introduction To Plural Nouns

23 Apr

For an introduction to plural nouns, I printed, laminated, and hung these in our dining room:

I love these-they were free (as is most of the stuff I use), and really helped to reinforce the rules.  And, they are cute too.  🙂

To start practicing these rules, we used this:

This is a GREAT little mini book-perfect for introducing plurals.

I was really happy with both of these resources-cute, fun, free, and they really worked-she started spelling plurals correctly right away!

Pinterest Thursday-Proper Vs. Common Nouns

16 Apr

Just to make sure The Girlio understood the difference between proper and common nouns, I was going to print some worksheets for practice.

She came in just as I was going to print them, and actually did them while they were still on the screen!

That’s one way to save paper.  I think she has this down pat.  🙂

Here is the only one I printed:
