Wowza! I'm Back with PD!

I gotta to say that one of the biggest reasons I love summer vacation is because I get to catch up to some much needed professional development reading. I know "nerd!" After 20+ years of teaching it keeps me excited about the profession, the kiddos, and all the other not so fun stuff teachers deal with.
I was hesitant to take on this little (big) number because it seemed soooo very long with 378 pages. I love to read, but I love to lounge around and do nothing during the summer too :)

I'm diggin' how it fits so nicely with Daily 5/Daily 3/CAFE. This book is filled with relevant strategies teachers can use when working with whole group and/or small group! 

The Goal 2 chapter is filled with strategies to keep students engaged and focused during independent reading. I don't know about you but, this is an area I need to work on. I have my handy dandy notes/jots of AHA moments! I am so freakin' excited!

What is your PD reading for the summer?
