What is your plan for summer reading? Of course many schools require summer reading and those requirements vary quite a bit. I’ve created my own summer reading plan. There is a stack of professional development books that I am hoping to get to and then there are the books that I want to read before putting into to my classroom library. There are the ones that I need to read or re-read in preparation for teaching, and the ones that I just plain have been wanting to read.
In the coming days I’ll try to get those lists up, as well some other suggestions for interesting reading.
Welcome to my new blog! I am starting this to share books. In the summer, it will be a resource for my students looking for ideas for their summer reading. The rest of the year, I plan to use it for book recommendations and promotion of reading.
