#BOTMBUDDYREAD #12

SO why do you think Oscar asked Laurie if she was happy? DOES HE KNOW?! Ulterior motives?

MoonWitch94 I think he suspects Jack has feelings for his wife & suspects Starfish is withholding some truth from him about Jack. He‘s just not sure how important that truth is in their relationship. 6h
zezeki I don't think he knows, but he's sensing something definitely. 6h
zezeki @MoonWitch94 That's very nicely said. 6h

Andrew65 @MoonWitch94 I totally agree with you. He suspects, or possibly really knows deep down. 6h
MoonWitch94 @zezeki thank you 🙂 @Andrew65 I think he‘s worried that he just married this woman, but maybe he‘s been duped? Maybe this was wrong & she will break my heart & I am a fool. What a day to discover that—your freaking wedding day! 6h
Andrew65 @MoonWitch94 Again I think I‘d agree with you. 6h
TheBookHippie @MoonWitch94 I think he watched her watch the speech and felt it ... 6h
MoonWitch94 @TheBookHippie Yes! I think he might‘ve had suspicions about how Jack felt, but now seeing his WIFE reactions, it‘s like “omg, did I just get played for a fool?” 6h
Scochrane26 I think most people would feel some doubt after that scene. 4h
Birdsong28 Yes. I think he probably had his suspicions from the first meeting. 📚📖 4h
AmyG Agree with all of you. 1h

Sarah ...thoughts on her? Her duty to Jack? Their relationship? Her relationship with Laurie? What does she know?!

AmyG I just feel that Sarah knows the relationship may waning. How much is she willing to bear? 1w
Andrew65 Feeling like Sarah has had enough of Jack, she seemed quite keen on Oscar. As I said earlier could Sarah end up with Oscar and Laurie with Jack? 1w
CoffeeNBooks @Andrew65 That seems like a possibility! 1w

Andrew65 @CoffeeNBooks Sarah just seemed very taken with Oscar from the word go. 1w
MoonWitch94 Sarah seems vert loyal. Loyal people don‘t walk away from relationships until it‘s MISERABLE (it‘s been my experience, at least). I think they might eventually do a big switch, which would be good, I think. I also don‘t think Sarah knows anything & I think if she finds out Jack is the Bus Guy she will be very upset that Laurie kept that from her. 1w
Scochrane26 I think Sarah likes Oscar because of his status. She belongs more in his class & has the social skills & ambition for it. I think that‘s what she is liking, not necessarily romantic. She & jack will eventually break up, but I think Sarah will be miserable by then. 1w
MadDashReading I think Sarah gets the angel treatment in the novel. We only see her through Laurie and Jack's eyes. They both worship her and put her on a pedestal. I like Sarah too, but I am sure she is much more complex and intuitive than her loved ones acknowledge. 6d

Ascender #7 | Jeff Lemire

#ncbd! Only three comics today—Ascender #7 (great art and a fantastic story), Invisible Kingdom #7 (Wilson‘s story gets richer & more interesting with each issue) and Ironheart #12 (this issue marks the completion of Eve Ewing‘s run). I‘m anticipating three very good, very different reads.

Question 11: If this one implies that officers will adjust their behaviors in regards to racism and use of excessive force while out on calls, I say yes, I‘m all for it. However, if you are back at the station doing desk work of some sort, I do not need you to show me those tasks.

Q12: Yes to the 100K.
Because there‘s no restriction as to how I could use my money to make me healthier while holding on to the 40 lbs.
100 lbs is asking too much.

BookNAround I can get paid to put on weight? I‘ve been doing it for free. 😂 1mo
ljuliel #12. DOGGONE. I‘ve put on 40 pounds in the past few years. Wish someone would‘ve offered me the money to do it. I wouldn‘t put on any more. It‘s much easier to Add than Subtract. 1mo
Amiable @BookNAround LOL! 😄 1mo

#ucflae3414f19 “Horton and the Kwuggerbug and More Lost Stories” is a Modern Fantasy picture book that has a collection of stories, that were lost but recently found, by Dr. Seuss. This book is funny, creative and extremely entertaining. For this book, I am going to do a LC and I would use the UDL 8.3. The ESOL strategy #6 which is monitoring student comprehension.

Alexush Since, this book has multiple Dr. Seuss stories I chose to use https://www.seussville.com/Educators/educatorClassroomResources.php?id=printable... #12 as a web source because this site has multiple activities and lessons for this book and the stories within it. (edited) 1mo
DrSpalding There is no better website for children to use with these particular books. You could spend quite a bit of time on this site! Horton books are lots of fun and good to read aloud. I am not sure about a literature circle for this particular title. 1w

Henry's Freedom Box | Ellen Levine
post image
Pickpick

#UCFLAE3414F19 This fiction picture book written by Ellen Levin and illustrated by Kadir Nelson is a dramatic story about how Henry Brown, born a slave, manages to gain his freedom by “mailing” himself to the north. When we first encounter Henry, he is a boy who doesn‘t even know how old he is because records about slaves‘ births are not kept.

ccipriati Henry dreams all the time about being free but that dream seems to keep being pushed farther and farther away. He is first taken away from his family and made to work inside a warehouse. Later on, when he is grown, he gets married and has a family, but, once again, he is separated from his family when they are sold at the slave market. (edited) 1mo
ccipriati But his dream stays alive and then one day, while working in the warehouse, he comes up with the brilliant plan of mailing himself to the North to freedom. This book won the Caldecott Medal. This historical fiction book is an amazing read aloud and shared reading book. It is both moving and inspirational and can be used in team teaching with the Social Studies teachers when they are teaching about pre-Civil War life. 1mo
ccipriati The UDL Guideline strategy that I have chosen for this book is 3.1 which strategy is intended to activate or supply background knowledge. Make sure that your students know and understand why there were slaves back then and how it has shaped our country.

ccipriati The ESOL Strategy that I picked for this book is #12 that is designed to teach to two objectives, language and content. Teach the students the unfamiliar words mentioned inside the book while also teaching them the content of the story. This book can also be used in a History lesson. (edited) 1mo
ccipriati Scholastic has provided a great lesson plan for this book. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/henrys-freedom... 1mo
cassandram This book sounds so powerful. Would be a great addition to curriculum during black history month. 1mo
DrSpalding We spoke about this book in class. Remember that Henry was a real person! This should be used in a social studies unit… What is the correct genre? 6h

#ncbd!!! Took the kids with me today—my son picked up a box of 50 comics for $10. I like the way he shops! My daughter stuck with three older issues—Flash, Ironman & Captain American. My purchases are below—Middlewest #12, Pretty Violent #3, Wonder Woman #81 & Ascender #6 new this week. Also added Paper Girls, Vol. 6 which I somehow missed when it was released earlier this month. I think we are all looking forward to an afternoon of reading!

GatheringBooks awesome picks! what a great bargain! 2mo

White becoming warden at the huge prison Hale and Ramsey landed at...justice ?

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I wasn‘t expecting this!! No, they deserved the death penalty.. 2mo
Karisa I'm against the death penalty. It felt like the book was suggesting that if they had been guilty of killing other whites that would have been the penalty. They better not have gotten out before their sentences were up. Way too callous of crimes. 2mo
CoffeeCatsBooks I know someone has to do that job, but I was kinda sad White ended up there. Those seem like very harsh places. 2mo
mrp27 Seems right that White ended up a warden, seems as if he is fulfilling his destiny. Even the ugliest places on earth with the ugliest of the human race deserve to be treated justly and humanely. Wish there was a warden like White in every prison. I thought it very interesting the jury was willing to sentence Hale and Ramsey to life instead of death. Wonder if the outcome would be different if the victims were white. I'm sad to say I think so. 2mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @mrp27 I totally agree... 2mo

#ScaryScavengerHunt #TeamStoker #12 Read a book that‘s part of a series. This is the first book in the series. Now I have to wait until Tuesday to get the second from the library. 😠 It definitely fits the team theme.

Was the Getty connection a shock too you ? In 1904, the Gettys moved from Minnesota to Oklahoma. Within two years, he had amassed a fortune. In 1913, George lent his son Jean Paul money to invest in oil wells.1915,JeanPaul had made his first million, the following year George and Jean Paul incorporated the Getty Oil Company, later to become Getty Oil. J Paul known as the richest man ever lived was it Indian stolen fortune ?

Librarybelle I wasn't surprised. I bet there are a lot of stories like this... 2mo
TheBookHippie @Librarybelle I bet it is astounding how many ....horrific. 2mo
CoffeeNBooks @Librarybelle I agree. So sad that so many people in our country's history made money this way. 2mo
mrp27 Wasn't surprised especially after watching the Getty movie and tv show recently. 2mo
