Summer Reading

As a student, I hated, HATED summer reading.    I'm sure most students do, but, here's the thing.  I love to read!  I've always been an avid reader.  I just want to be able to choose my own books!  And now that I am an adult, I can choose my own summer reading!  I'm linking up with Clutter-Free Classroom to tell you about what I plan to have in my beach bag this summer.

I plan to re-visit these two bad boys:

I've read them both and I use pieces of both in my classroom but I want to re-read them so that I can incorporate more!

One of my biggest challenges in my class is guided reading groups.  I'm hoping to check this one out to see if it can help me in this area:

And I've heard lots of great things about The Book Whisperer so I plan to read this one as well!

And for my girly-side:

I actually just finished this one and really enjoyed it.  I want to read some of her other books!  

What are you reading this summer?  Link up with Clutter-Free Classroom to share!

  5. I'm with you!! When I was in school I would hide my summer reading assignments from my parent because I didn't want them to harass me to do it right away when all I really wanted was to take a break from "assigned" books and read my own by the pool. I would always secretly do the summer reading in my own time but one year my parents found out about it a few days before school started and my Dad made me watch the movie Oliver Twist because he did not believe I had really read the story! :)
