Weekend Wrap-up #321 – Lesson Planning and Puppies Playing

Posted 15 August, 2020 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 20 Comments

Weekend Wrap-up is where I share my new books, as well as what happened here at (un)Conventional Bookworms and elsewhere in the blogoshpere. I’m linking up with the usual suspects, AKA Team Tynga’s Reviews and Caffeinated Reviewer.

STS #320

Stacking The Shelves, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality is all about the latest additions to my library – virtual or actual, with books that are  bought, borrowed, won or ARCs  I will (probably) be reading soon. Without further ado, here’s what I added to my bloated shelves this past week:

The Code for Love and Heartbreak cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up

Thank you Inkyard Press and NetGalley!

Chase Me cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up

I got books 3-7 in this excellent series by Farrah Rochon. I love it so far, it’s awesome, and I am in love with most of the characters. <3

There was a two for one credit at Audible this week, and I definitely took advantage of that!

The Sunday Post #260 – Weekend Wrap-up

Kim @ The Caffeinated Reviewer, is our hostess with the mostest for the weekly Sunday Post where I’m wrapping things up. It is the perfect opportunity to share what happened here on my own blog, as well as some of the happenings elsewhere in the Blogosphere.

This week was spent on more lesson planning, and I did some of the work with a friend who works at another school, but has the same levels as me. We have chosen two of the same novels to read with our 3rd year students this year, so it was fun to share our views on the literature and how to best present things to our students while also teaching them how to write an essay!

On Friday evening, my oldest had a friend come over with her three month-old puppy, and my goodness, Hercules had a blast playing with him. Freddy was a bit upset when Hercules would lie down on his back so the puppy wouldn’t be afraid to play, but he had fun as well.

    That is great to have a friend in the same teaching position to bounce ideas off of and make your lesson plans even better for the students.

    Ah, a puppy play date. How fun!

    Have a good week, Linda!

  3. I grabbed a couple from the audible BOGO sale as well – I actually got THEY BOTH DIE AT THE END as well 😍.

    Yay for buddy lesson planning! I’m living vicariously through all y’all going back to school. I know I’ve made the right choice for my family but I miss the classroom SO MUCH. I hope I can go back someday. When do the students start?

    I hope you have a great week. Miss you!! Hugs!

  4. That sounds nice that you were able to lesson plan with another teacher! Hope your weekend is nice, and sounds like freddy and Hercules are doing great! 🙂

    The Code for Love and Heartbreak looks good!

  5. I just pictured the puppy scene *smile* Reminded me of the days when I had dogs myself. Long ago… Thank you for the beautiful picture. Love pitures like that. Happy reading and have a great weekend. And please stay safe and well.

    That sounds great.. being able to plan together with your friend.
    And puppies.. sigh.. I just love puppies. Everytime I see one I end up wanting one myself. LOL!
    Have a great week and happy reading.

  7. I remember lesson planning with a friend and teaching colleague – it really helps to have two heads instead of one and certainly takes a lot of the slog out of the process! And what a lovely pic of the puppies – they look so happy. Have a great week, Linda:)

  8. Puppy play date sounds like so much fun! That must have been so cute to watch.
    Sounds like planning is going good and fun to be able to do it with a friends. Picking the same book is a great idea to be able to get feedback from each other.

    I hope you have a great week, Linda! Happy Reading! xx Miss you!

  9. Yay for puppy play! They Both Die at the End sounds a little depressing. That’s great you had someone to share in lesson planning. When I first taught at university – accounting – my accounting professor shared some methods and ideas with me and it was very helpful. I hope school is going well. We just stay home because the world is crazy right now here.

  10. How nice to be able to do some lesson planning with a friend and that you had some puppy fun. 😊 It has been too hot and humid here in the UK to do very much, except a trip to a local lake for a cooling dip! However it does mean I have read a lot! Take care and happy reading in the coming week. 😃
