The Hunger Games

I have to admit I may have lived under a rock for a while...

Yes a while..

Because I did not know anything about the Hunger Games Series until I went away on spring break.  I had seen some posts about the book, but the title always made me uninterested.  Then I discovered that this book is part of the curriculum in Grade 6 in BC, my only excuse is that I haven't taught a lot of language arts at that grade (even then it isn't a good excuse).  Anywho.. I am catching up with the times and I read both the Hunger Games and Catching Fire in 4 days.  I couldn't put this book down!! Now I understand why so many teachers are having success with this book in their class.  I am now following the Hunger Game Lessons for some great lesson ideas.  I just hope that one day I will be able to use these ideas (fingers crossed). 

So I am no longer living under the rock, and today I bought the last book in the series... Mockingjay.  Some of the reviews I have read found that this book was a disappointment compared to the other two.  So I am interested if you have read this book and feel differently or similar?

I am pretty sure it will be a late night for me because I always have a hard time putting down a good book.... and sleep can be overrated sometimes. 

Lastly, I was reminded by All Free Teacher Resources that I have a FREE Easter behaviour punch card download on TPT!! I made this in February and completely forgot to mention it in my last Easter post.  So thank you Emma! This card reminds me that I need to put out an American spelling version of this card (I have the Canadian apelling of behaviour, so I will make another freebie version soon, thoo thorry).
