I've just started reading this book. I'm trying to better utilize my reading response notebooks with my higher readers. I will let you know how this one goes.
I don't know how i did Daily 5 without these two books. They have lots of good ideas for reading task cards that really push kids to think about what they are reading.
I LOVE DAILY 5!! This is my first year doing CAFE and I want to revamp a lot over the summer but I love the freedom it gives my kids!
Spaces and Places was a book I read as part of a professional development project my school did and I LOVE IT!
I couldn't find un-blurry pictures of these books :( but I love Dina Zike!! Her ideas make boring note taking fun for students. Visit her website to check out all of her amazing books by clicking on the books.
Read A Loud
It was hard to pick my favorite read-a-louds so here are just a few that have inspired lots of writing projects and reading projects.
Just for Me
Taylor Mali!! If you are a teacher and don't know his poetry you need to You Tube him right now. He is what gets me through those days when you want to run out of the classroom screaming and never come back.
So I jumped on The Hunger Games Bandwagon and I am now obsessed. The Uglies is a series that also looks at how government tries to control people in the future. Its not as good as The Hunger Games but still an easy and entertaining read.
Ok, so I have a historical fiction/biography obsession Allison Weir is my favorite at both
