Summer Reading Linky Party

Hi everyone!!

I hope that you have all had a chance to check out my giveaway and get to know a little bit about Ms. Magee, Brooke and Mrs. Tabb! They are wonderful teachers and bloggers and I hope that you are enjoying our giveaway! And in the theme of fairy tales...

is having a linky party and sharing summer reading lists. I have 2 (of course)!

My school summer reading list will include:
1. Rereading The Daily 5

2. Rereading The Cafe Book

3. Strategies That Work: Teaching Comprehension for Understanding and Engagement


Now....for my SUMMER FREE TIME  reading list:
1. The Help

2. Water for Elephants

3. Wicked : The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West

I am sure that their are about a million more books that I will want to read but these are the ones that I have already purchased and have been waiting patiently for me to have the time to devote to them. Summer is around the corner, so their wait won't be much longer!!! I have a kindle (and I do love it) but there just isn't anything that compares to turning the pages of a great book! What will you be reading???

Ok... Water for Elephants is my ALL time FAVORITE book! I was excited for the movie, but it did not EVEN compare! The left out some of the details that made that book so magical. I also LOVE a book called The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet.

I am planning on re-reading the Sisters books too!

AND as you probably have heard, Debbie Diller's Math Work Stations is high on my list... LOL!

Your list looks great! I listened to "The Help" on CD last year--Wow, the different voices made this book come alive. It is a keeper! If you read "Wicked", I recommend that you get the soundtrack to the musical, too. This is my fav musical and the original cast was incredible! The music will really add to your reading experience :-).

@Deedee- I am so glad that it is a great book!! I really want to read the book before seeing the movie. Reading the summary- wow! I was hooked!

I also wanted to tell you that I LOVE the book study!!! What an amazingly clever way to colloborate over what will be a great read!!

Ms. Morgart said...

@Chrissy- I ADORE musicals and Wicked definitely captured my imagination! I wanted to see it sooooo badly (we are headed to NYC next week) but the tickets were a little out of my league :(

I love the music and it is what inspired me to grad the book. I think that it is an AWESOME idea to pair the two- both the music and the book- for a wonderful experience!! I can't wait!!

Strategies that Work completely changed the way that I teach reading! I read it three summers ago, and begin creating read aloud journals around it before I even finished reading it. When I implemented the strategies, I was amazed at the difference it made in my kids' reading!

I just read Water For Elephants and suggest finishing it before you see the movie {if it's not too late!}. I'm reading The Help right now! :) And Wicked is a favorite although I didn't think the book and show really matched up...the book was much darker. I've also heard that Hunger Games is good if you're wanting to add to your list. I hope you have the time to get around to all of them!! :)

You will love your professional reading list! They are uber teacher friendly and so practical for anyone using a balance literacy program.

I'll have to check out The Help and Wicked. Happy reading!
