Awe summer! When teachers can read books!!! I LOVE to read! I don't do it as much as I would like but I am a total teaching dork...so when I can read I love to read teaching books!! So I am super excited to share some of my favorites!
This book is great because it has ideas and tips from actual classroom visits. I love it because my theory is this: If can read a book (or attend a PD session) and get ONE usable classroom idea that I can implement tomorrow, then it was worth it. This book has tons of those simple and easy ideas!!!
I read this two summers ago and it was so incredibly inspiring and motivating. It was also one of those books that I read and was like, OH WOW! I can do this! This book was also big on changing my mind set and attitude on things . Attitude is everything!
Another fave is this guided math book! It has some great, usable ideas for math centers and workstations!
And finally...the book I'm currently reading and doing a book study on!!! This is such an easy read and so many ideas and tips and tricks! You can join in our study on my Kindergarten Smorgasboard Facebook page! AND I get to interview Debbie Miller, the author, at the end of the summer!!!!
