I'm happy to link up with my sweet friend Ciera at Adventures of Room 129 for her Summer Reading Linky. I've got two professional books I'm reading this summer:
I was able to go to a Daily 5 Conference with The Sisters in Chicago in April. I totally drank the D5 Kool Aid -- LOVE it!! I mean, like I came back & put the structure into action in my classroom the next day love it! I'll admit, I actually had both the Daily 5 & Cafe books & kinda sorta read them both....yet I was never really ever able to wrap my brain around it. Seeing & hearing about it at the
conference just really made it all click. (If you ever have the opportunity to go to a Daily Conference, go!). I'm excited to be hosting a book study of the new 2nd Edition of Daily 5 this summer! We're starting up June 20th, so there's still plenty of time to grab a copy of the book & join us! You don't have to have a blog to read along with us....discussions can happen in the comments.
I'm also going to re-read Number Talks (Sherry Parrish). I read this a few years ago as part of Math Leader training for my district. It really made an impact on my math instruction. I'm looking forward to refreshing my skills over the summer. If anyone is also planning to read this one, or would like to read along with me, please let me know! I love being able to talk about what I'm reading!
That's it for my professional reading (as of now! haha!). I'll have to let you all know about my personal leisure reading as it comes up. By the way -- I'm taking suggestions! Let me know if you have a title I 'just gotta read'!
