My Favorite Professional Books!

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 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!!!!

  1. These are some great suggestions. 17,000 Classroom Visits is new to me. I'll have to check it out. One that no one mentioned but that I love is Jennifer Jacobson's "No More, 'I'm Done'" for writing workshop.
