A Little "Light" Reading

One of my favorite blogs to stalk, the Clutter-Free Classroom, is hosting a linky party about our summer reading plans, plus there's a contest for a $15 gift certificate. Woot! I just gotta link up!

Here's what I'm reading currently:

I am a huge Rick Riordan fan and have read the other Kane Chronicle books, so I had to get this downloaded to my Kindle. This is a great read for upper elementary grades and is FULL of Egyptian history and myth!

I plan on re-reading these two books and begin to map out what Daily 5 is going to look like in my classroom. I'm very excited because I'm going to a district where everyone does D5! It's going to be a great learning experience!

Here are a few I plan on reading this summer:

I really want to beef up my writing instruction next year, and this is a book
I keep seeing in the "blogosphere". It's got to be good!

This is another one I've heard buzz about. I've heard excellent things about Debbie Diller, so I look
forward to learning more about doing small groups more effectively. 

Ok, now it's your turn to link up and share your summer reading plans! Have a faboo Friday!!

    1. Teresa - glad you found me! We fourth grade teachers have to stick together! :o)

      Have a great weekend!


  2. Great choices! The Debbie Diller books are great - very practical! Each section has tips that you can put to use immediately. I might have to put that one back on my list too! I am moving from 1st to third after a few years and need to rethink my teaching a bit. Enjoy reading!


    1. Christine - Thanks for your cowabunga! :) I'm excited to read the Debbie Diller books, and I'm glad to hear the tips are practical and easy.

      Thanks again and I'm following your blog now! :)
