Summer Reading List

My summer reading list continues to grow and I feel as though my progress is slow, but I'll make it (does someone want to watch my 5yr old for a week while I go on a binge reading).

Here is a glimpse of some of the things I'm reading.


But I also have a "fun" reading list that keeps taunting me!


Right now I'm reading Unmistakable Impact, I'll do a book study update when I get done!

So I'm one that has to mark my passages and make notes...it's a comprehension strategy I teach AND practice, seeing that this book in on loan to me from my new principal I solely have sticky notes.


This afternoon while I was trying to read a few pages my daughter brought me a stack of her books, complete with her own sticky notes!


Of course being the teacher mommy we went through each book and I had her tell me why she put the sticky note on that particular page (can't ever start too early)...she did awesome!


This page was because of the cowgirl boots (she wears hers every chance she gets), and of course the beautiful dresses!

So, what is on your summer reading list?

Oh my goodness! I love how your daughter used her own sticky notes (and that she could explain her reasoning)!

I'm interested in learning about taking notes... I do in my teaching books, but not books for fun. If I did, then maybe I could teach it better. Thanks.

Oh that is one of my favorite things to teach the kids! I will definitely have to do a post about that for you!!!

Since I'm moving to third grade, I really would love to know more about your note taking lessons. I think it would go along great with the science since they will be using picture books.

That is so cool that your five your old put the tabs in her book too! Love it!

@Kelly, thanks for reading and I am working on a few posts to show you guys how I get my students making notes, leaving tracks, and thinking about what they are reading...even those little guys!
