#PictYourBooks Update

A lot has happened since the last time we had a #PictYourBooks challenge update. The COVID-19 (or novel coronavirus) has been declared a pandemic and started spreading through the United States. Like many schools in the U.S. (and many schools in the world) all schools in Wisconsin were closed by our state governor. Then our school district decided to close schools two days before the governor's order.

Which means that last week on Monday you were given a new #PictYourBooks challenge, and by Monday of this week, all of our schools were closed due to the virus.

Things sure change quickly. We have learned a lot of new vocabulary words in the past week like pandemic, quarantine, and social distancing. Here is another new word from the #PictYourBooks challenge:

HIATUS: A pause or gap in a sequence, series, or process.

As in, "The #PictYourBooks challenge will be on hiatus for a while." Note that hiatus means a pause or a break. It does NOT mean stop or end! The #PictYourBooks challenge will be back soon, but for now my time will be spent updating other reading resources for the students in my school and district.

Thank you for understanding, everyone. Be safe, be well, wash your hands, and keep reading all those great books!
