My Summer Reading Plan :)

Well,  after compiling this list... I am hoping my plan isn't toooooo adventurous :)

Here is what I would like to read this summer:

1. The Leader in Me... my principal loves it and would like us to read it this summer.  I have been pinning some ideas to go along with it.  Does anyone else do this at their school?

2.  The CAFE book... I am thinking about trying this next year with my fifth graders (will be teaching 7 rotations of reading).
3.  The Book Whisperer... Personally, I love to read and it makes me sad that not all children do.

4.  Again, the 7 classes makes me a bit nervous.  I haven't had many classroom management issues in the past, but I want to be proactive for the possibilities next year.  Especially since the person who will have my students before me is wayyyy more lax than I am.

So, what are you reading???  Join up at Clutter Free Classroom to share what you will be reading (and to possibly win)

  1. Hmm, I'm not sure what I'm reading yet, but I feel like I should be reading something!! Last year I read Harry Wong's book about starting off the school year.

  2. Thanks for the suggestions! There are so many books that sound good out there that it's going to be hard to choose which ones to read first! :)
