Summer Reading List Linky Party

I’m linking up with some other sweet friends over at Clutter-Free Classroom for a Summer Reading List Linky Party!


Teacher books make me so happy.  I especially love books that are practical and that have ideas that I can use immediately. Two of my favorite teacher books (funny enough, they are sitting right next to me!) that I revisit time and time again are:

Comprehension Connections by Tanny McGregor


Literacy Work Stations by Debbie Diller

These two books have truly changed the way I teach my reading block. They are chock full of anchor charts, graphic organizers, and hands-on activities that will surely keep your students engaged and happy! I cannot wait to re-read these this summer. I am certain that (although I’ve read them before), I’ll discover another brilliant idea that I can use with my firsties next year.

I’d LOVE to find some mathematics texts that are worth reading, so I’m super excited to see what is on everyone else’s reading list.

What is on your summer reading list? Link up with Clutter-Free Classroom to share!

I've enjoyed Number Sense Routines by Jessica Shumway and Teaching Student-Centered Mathematics K-2 by Van D Walle. :)

I'm going over When Readers Struggle by Fountas & Pinnell. I did a book study on it this year, but the book is so extensive that I want to go over it again so I don't miss anything. It's a book with great strategies for struggling readers!

These a two of my favorite books! I've loved Debbie Diller since college, but I just received "Comprehension Connections" at a recent Title I meeting, and absolutely love it! It IS so practical & easy to use! It's great to see others are finding ideas from the same books :)

Those are 2 books I refer back to often! =)

I am revisiting several books this summer. 2 are about morning meetings that I am going to take bits and pieces from and tie it in with the Conscious Discipline I already do.
