Upper Elementary Summer Book Study

Today was officially my first day of summer vacation…wait for it…wait for it….YAY!!! Bring on summer! Okay – just had to get that out of my system;)


You know by now how I feel about doing some kind of professional, summer reading. So, I just had to share!

I just came across an awesome book study group for middle school/upper elementary. They are reading The Daily Five, and then The Cafe Book this summer. All are welcome to join in!

It begins tomorrow! Lots of notice, I know;) But I know some of you already have read those books, so it would be nice to be able to discuss how you used them with others who have not implemented them in their classrooms yet. Whether you’ve read the books or not, you can check out the posts that develop from the book study to see if these resources are something that might interest you for the summer or the next school year. All of the info including the blog posting schedule is on a wonderful new blog: We Read, We Blog, We Teach. The two resources for the book study group are below for you to check out, as well. As I said, they are starting with The Daily Five and will move into The Cafe Book in a couple of weeks. Check it out and join the conversations! Happy reading!
