What I'm Reading This Summer

This summer, I am hoping to catch up with a lot of reading! I got a Kindle for Christmas (just the cheapie version), but I L-O-V-E it! Anywho, this is what I plan on reading as my "fun read":

I LOVED The Hunger Games series, and I read Divergent (the first in this series). It's along the same lines as THG, but the characters in it have to choose which personality trait they'll have. It takes place in sweet home Chicago, so that makes it even more interesting (to me, anyways)!

For professional reading, I plan to reread Comprehension and Collaboration.

I've had the chance to see both Stephanie Harvey and Harvey Daniels speak, and they are AMAZING! We used this book in a study group at my school, and now that our school day is being extended, I'm hoping to have an inquiry workshop during the day in which students work on inquiry projects. So I'll be rereading this for inspiration!

What are you reading this summer???


  1. Just found your blog...welcome to blogging. Your summer reads look great. I will be reading In Pictures and In Words along with a ton of children's literature books to get myself ready for new standards.


  2. Hi Robynn! Thanks for the sweet comment! I've heard great things about In Pictures and In Words. I definitely need to get reading up on some more children's lit as well!

  3. I love the idea for an inquiry block. If only we were all lucky enough to have extra time!


  4. Meredith - I absolutely understand about the time factor. We've had a very short day for a long time (students have only been there 9-2:45, with an hour total for lunch and prep), and we're finally getting a longer school day. I've done some inquiry work in reading workshop and integrated with social studies, which worked even during that limited time frame. I'll be posting more about it soon! :)
