I am thrilled to be joining in with my Reading Crew friends to bring you this jam-packed summer mentor text linky. Click away, read on, and find some AMAZING resources to utilize for your end of the year, this summer, or for your return to the classroom in fall.
I dream of reading novel after novel throughout the school year, but time is of the essence. With professional development, classroom instruction, and family life…novel reading for pleasure can go by the wayside. That is why summertime is my very favorite book reading season! I would love to know what books you have set aside to tackle this summer!
While we go on tons of daily adventures and spend lots of hours at the pool and sporting events, book store trips are a favorite. We read books, buy too many new books ( I am a reading teacher, how do I say no?), and enjoy sweet, non-caffeinated drinks. Reading books in summer gives me the chance to…
- Talk about books with my kids
- Set an example as a lifelong reader and learner
- Stay connected to teaching
- Add to classroom book recommendations
Win, win, win, win!
A perfect summertime read you will love is Rules by Cynthia Lord.
