Here we are with another chance to share wonderful books with each other thanks to Jen and Kellee over at Teach Mentor Texts and Sheila over at Book Journey who both sponsor this great meme each week for young adult/children and adult respectively!
Middle Grade/YA Books:
These books are what I’ve read since June 18th-my last IMWAYR post. I haven’t even made a dent in my PD pile of books I want to read this summer! But I’m going to the beach in a week so hopefully I can knock out some more then. As much as I LOVE to read PD books and WANT to read PD books, my brain is feeling the need for a vacay FROM PD books. 🙂
What I’m Currently Reading:
THIS book is absolutely fantastically fabulous! When Kids Can’t Ready by the famous Kylene Beers. How did I ever miss this one?
It’s written as a narrative with student transcripts provided so you can actually “hear” and “see” how kids think!
She also begins and ends EVERY chapter to a former student that she feels like she failed. I just cried while reading one of those letters.
LOTS of practical ideas/strategies that I can’t wait to try with my 6th graders! 🙂
5 of 5 stars to this one even thought I’m not even finished!
What are you reading?
