Five on Friday: Book Edition

Joining up with A. Liz Adventures for this week's Five on Friday post. Head on over to check it out.

Today I had books on my mind. Not just fun books, but professional books that I've read or want to read.

one | Write Beside Them by Penny Kittle

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3290869-write-beside-them?from_search=true&search_version=service

We read this for a book study for school this year and I'm so glad I did. I got some great ideas to try in my classroom and different projects/units to try with my students for this fall.


two | The First Days of School by Harry & Rosemary Wong

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/74814.The_First_Days_Of_School?from_search=true&search_version=service

This book is great if you're a student studying to become a teacher, a brand new teacher, or even someone who's been teaching for a while. I plan to re-read this soon to prep myself for next year. 

three | The Reading/Writing Connection by Carol Booth Olson

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/684451.The_Reading_Writing_Connection?from_search=true&search_version=service

I read this book for the first time in college during one of my Methods classes. Now I'm wishing I had been more thorough in my note taking from that class...so I guess I'll be reading it again this summer so my ideas are honed for the fall. I'm hoping to develop an engaging Multigenre Project...so if ou have any ideas...

four | When Kids Can't Read What Teachers Can Do by Kylene Beers

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/39929.When_Kids_Can_t_Read_What_Teachers_Can_Do?from_search=true&search_version=service

I started reading this right after college...picked it up and put it down again during my first year of teaching. Eventually, I read the whole thing. But much like the Carol Booth Olson book, I wish I would've been more thorough in my reading/note-taking. So this goes on my re-read stack too.

five | Book Love by Penny Kittle

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15858200-book-love?from_search=true&search_version=service

The cover of this book isn't the most appealing, but I'm really looking forward to reading this book this summer. I received it as a gift from a friend and I really enjoyed Kittle's other book that I've read. Write Beside Them is her book all about writing and Book Love is...you guessed it...all about reading. More reading strategies for the fall? Here I come!


If you're not into professional reading for English teachers, I apologize that I bored you. But if you're interested, check these titles out. And friend me on Goodreads if you want.

Happy Friday!
