Summer = Reading!!

Are you enjoying your summer? I know many teachers have finished up their school year and have hit the beaches, while some are still counting the days!

I have spent the first couple of weeks writing my essay for the next step in my Teacher of the Year journey. It has been a labor of love and I am so honored to continue to represent my school, district and all those that are part of this amazing profession! I am so blessed to be a teacher.

Along with writing my essay, I have been gathering a beautifully long list of books that I will be sinking my teeth into in just a few days!

I love reading professional books! My brain just starts swimming with ideas to implement in my classroom and share with all of my colleagues (including all of you, of course!). Here are a few of the books that I will be reading (and rereading again) this summer:

This one I bought last summer and referenced it throughout the school year but I haven't had time to REALLY read it:

I am going to reread these little beauties, and will be following along in the 1-3 Book Study:

Want to follow the book study?

I also have a second stack of books more for entertainment and the pure of love of reading, but I'll leave those for another post! ;)

So, what are you planning to read this summer? I am dying to hear!

I am going to follow along with the Daily 5 book study & there's also a Guided Math book study going on that I'm very interested in following also. It's so nice to have the summer to relax & read! :)

I am definitely rereading Daily 5 this summer too! I also read "No More, I'm Done!" by Jennifer Jacobson- what a GREAT writer's workshop book! I also finally read The Book Whisperer and Reading with Meaning. All wonderful resources. I'm definitely going to look up the ones you mentioned. I think I have an unhealthy addiction to teacher books? :) Great blog!

Reaching for the TOP!

Yes! Yes! Yes! I quickly devoured two fiction books this summer and then dove into my PD books. I've read Daily 5 and The CAFE Book, along with The Book Whisperer. Strategies that Work is a great book. Amanda...if you like No More, I'm Done, then you would also probably like Marvlous Minilessons to Teach Young Writers (or something like that).
