Mothers Day update & Good Reads linky party

I totally forgot to post about what we did for Mothers Day this year with my kinders. This year, I made a magnetic photo for the moms. I used old puzzle pieces from a 500 piece puzzle, a foam circle and a magnet for each child's frame. I also did the handprint poems that I posted in a Friday Freebie a few weeks ago. Both were quite a hit! 

I am linking up with Mrs. Sanford at her blog for her Good Reads linky party. I love to read so this was the perfect blog for me! I am a hopeless romantic and I have lots of books that I want to read this summer. Here is my list:

1) The House on Tradd Street by Karen White
This is a new author and book series for me that is based on Charleston, SC which is only about 1 1/2 hours away from me.
2) The Wedding by Nicholas Sparks
This is the only book by Nicholas Sparks that I have not read so I have to read it. His books never disappoint and they are always better than the movies based on the books although those are pretty good too!
3) Porch Lights by Dorothea Benton Frank
This is the newest book by one of my favorite authors that comes out in mid-June. I have read all of her books so far so I can't wait to read this one. It is also based on the Lowcountry of SC (Sullivans Island).

4) The Charleston Trilogy books by Sherryl Woods: The Backup Plan, Waking Up In Charleston, & Flirting With Disaster
I have loved every book that I have read by Sherryl Woods so I am sure these will be fabulous!
Here are some books that I have read in the past that were great:
1) The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks
2) The Sweet Magnolias series (Stealing Home, A Slice of Heaven, and Feels Like Family) by Sherryl Woods
3) Flamingo Diner by Sherryl Woods
4) Home Front by Kristin Hannah

BTW: My new giveaway starts tomorrow so come back for a chance to win my newest unit!

  2. I can't wait to get started reading these books! This was a great idea for a linky party!


  3. I found your blog through the linky party. I teach pre-k but I see lots of things that I can use on here!

    The Wedding is the sequel to The Notebook, I think I liked it better than The Notebook. You will love it!
