If I wasn't a teacher I would definitely be a librarian! How fun to get to be with all those books all day!
If you can't tell, I was at one of my favorite places today - the library. I needed to get started reading books so I can make good recommendations for my new fourth grade students next fall. Unfortunately, everyone is super excited about summer reading and lots of the books I was looking for were gone :(. Sad for me, good for the kids!
Don't worry, I still found lots to read including several teacher books which I will be blogging about soon.
Yes, I am that crazy woman at the library who balances two giant stacks of books because I always forget my bag and find way more books than I can carry. (Notice the Princess and the Frog book? That is for my daughters who are both learning to read - I cannot even describe how excited I am about this! We are reading Ramona books at bedtime and I am in heaven - I still remember reading Ramona myself when I was little.)
So, my question for all intermediate elementary teachers - what books should I read this summer to get ready for a class full of young readers? Girls, boys, readers, reluctant readers, etc... I want something for everyone! Thanks so much!
