Book Clubs and WBT Wednesday


For the third summer I have decided to be a part of summer book studies but this year I am working on 3!
I know that is crazy but I think they are all so worth it.
First is just a review of The Sisters' books on our Daily CAFE yahoo group and Facebook group. I thought it would be good to have a  refresher on these books that are the base of my literacy block.
 


Second is this year's must have teaching book

Some wonderful teacher bloggers started this book study in June and I am trying to at least keep up with the reading. Check them out by clicking their super cute book study button below.


Third is actually an ongoing book club instead of a summer book study on Chris Biffle's Whole Brain Teaching for Challenging Kids. Of course this is also a MUST have.

I finally got the courage to type up my response to the WBT book club assignment for Chapter 1 & 2. Check it out and see links for the main book club by clicking the image below.

What are your must reads this summer? Are these on your teacher bookshelf too?

My "Teach Like a Pirate" just came in the mail yesterday. As a lover of WBT, I now see I really need to order Coach's book too. Thanks for the gentle push!!!

You will love them both Shelia! I am going to be posting about Teach Like a Pirate this week and thinking of doing a linky about Teach Like a WBT PIRATE :)

I am refreshing myself with the D5 and CAFE with the same group and doing the WBT (although I have taken the last week and a half to actually take a break this summer. I might have to look for "Teach Like a Pirate." What is it about? I am also reading the book "Teaching With Poverty in Mind" by Eric Jensen and a couple of others.
