Summer Book Studies

This summer a lot of upper grade teachers will be hosting a book study using Daily 5 & Cafe books. Katie from Adventures of a 6th Grade Teacher is hosting a giveaway of the two books for the book study.

The awesome leaders of this group have set up a new blog to host the discussions We Read, We Blog, We Teach, which looks awesome.

I definitely plan on rereading the books and trying to implement it as much as possible in my class. It'll be fun to discuss and share thoughts will other teachers and I definitely plan on joining in! I was going to implement Cafe it next year anyway, but now I will have to try and fit it in a different framework (we'll be using Literacy By Design in my new district). The best part is that this is the first year that they are doing it, so there will be lots of training for everyone and we'll all start on the same page! :) 

Head on over to Adventures of a 6th Grade Teacher to join her giveaway!

I also found a book study hosted by Brenda at Primary Inspired and her friends using the book Guided Math. She is having a giveaway on her blog for the book as well. If you are interested in hosting a chapter, go on over and let her know!

I'm really looking forward to the summer with all of these book studies. :) Reading is one of my favorite things to do!

Smiles and Sunshine,
Kaitlyn
