Hmmm...what do I plan on reading this summer? Well, my grandmom always says there should be two books on your nightstand: one for fun and one to learn.
I want to reread some education books I read awhile ago. Someone told me about Everyday Editing at a workshop, so I bought it. I only glanced through it. I never really digested it. This summer I want to work on creating some good upper elementary grammar practice materials.
Practice with Purpose always gives me ideas when I read through it.
I want to study different periods of American History by how it affected children. I am starting with the Civil War. I skimmed both of these 2 summers ago, but this summer I want to really read them.
I have always heard how good the Book Whisperer is, so I would like to read it.
Heather at Heather's Heart has been blogging about Conscious Discipline so I might look into that.
I picked up these two at the library. They looked interesting. I always have to keep up with juvenile and young adult novels.
One of these days I would like to get around to reading Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins.
My husband will give me a hard time if I don't read these two and keep with the series.
After skimming everyone's reading choices for the summer via the linky party, I now also have added Mosaic of Thought (which was given to me and I never read). I am considering Fifty Shades of Grey (I am curious to see what all the controversy is. Although, some have indicated it is not very well-written, so I may not get very far.)
Let's see if I can read all this in one summer! I tend to hardly read at all for months and then consume books for awhile. I also am continuously working on 1000 Gifts by Ann Voskamp and my own gratitude list. I also am trying to read and study the Bible more.
On a side note, if you are looking for some Reading Resources for your classroom, I made some common core aligned Reading Graphic Organizers for 3rd grade and 5th grade. I am currently working on 4th grade.
Here is a summer reading log freebie for you. I made this in case you wanted something simple to send home for accountability, but with minimal copying.
