Who doesn't love a good book pool side? For me, this is heaven! Not all the books I read are about teaching, but the teaching related ones that I'd like to read during the school year end up on the shelf for most of it because there is no time!For those of you looking for a great Go-To book to help with your plans for next year, here are a few of my favorites. They are easy to read and great during our free time! In fact, I am reading some of them again as a refresher of all the great ideas I didn't get to use this year. The books below are quick links to Amazon so you can just click and buy!
This book by Debbie Diller is a great starting point for getting your math stations started and organized! It is written in an informative way with lots of pictures to support what she talks about.
Here is another book by Debbie Diller to help you organize and make the best use of your Literacy Centers. Again, it is written in a way that is easy to understand with lots of picture support.
This last book of Debbie's is great for those of you who may have never taught Guided Reading groups or need more ideas of how to make the most of the ones you have set up in your classroom.
These last two books are by Kathy Collins and Debbie Miller (no relation to Debbie Diller I think). I have used these for the last 7 years and I am always going back to each one to find new ideas everytime!
