Book Studies GALORE!

I have found THREE more great book studies for those of you looking for something to do over the summer
Number 1...If you haven't heard of or read the book Guided Math, this is  a good place to get started. Click on the link below to join Brenda and many others. Book study starts tomorrow!

Primary Inspired: Guided Math~Book Study Calendar & Survey!: I am SO excited to "get my math on" & start this Guided Math party book study tomorrow! Hope you've got your book, some sticky no...

Number 2...The second book study is taking place at Thinking of Teaching . Beth hosted a book study last year that focused on The Book Whisperer (fabulous book if you haven't read it) and has decided to follow this summer with Lori Jamison's Guiding Readers. This is another incredible must-have professional book.

Number 3...Daily 5 in KINDERGARTEN! Yep, it's true! For all of you kindergarten teachers, hop over to Live, Love, Laugh Everyday in Kindergarten to check this one out. It will be hosted by Tammy and several other TBA authors.

1 week left more me...not that I'm counting!

AHHHH! 1 1/2 Weeks Left!

I have made it half-way through this dreaded 4 week course! Down to the completion of the group project and dreaded 10-15 page paper...that I'm still not sure how to actually put together. Oh well, it will get done.

Meanwhile, I have stumbled upon two awesome things "to-do" for yourself over the summer. If you are looking to play around with some writing, check out this link to "Teachers Write!" A Virtual Writing Camp for Teachers and Librarians. I'm planning on trying it myself. Be sure to scroll down on the page and "Sign Up".

The other gem is the online book study for Daily 5 and CAFE being held at We Read, We Blog, We Teach.

This is being run by several TBA authors and other great bloggers. I have been using Daily 5 and CAFE for a few years now and have also done several professional development sessions for our staff and others in the district, but I'm always on the look out for more. Maybe I'll "see" you there:-)

For those of you like me who are STILL in school, hang in there, the end is near. And for those of you lucky ducks who are done, start having some fun!
