C is for Currently {July}

It's that time again! How did July get here so fast?

I'm linking up with Farley for this month's Currently.

Since I am always a rule follower {snicker...ah hem} here are my two books:

One of my favorite read alouds is "The Perfect Nest" (I even did a post about it awhile ago). If you need a funny read aloud to lighten the mood or fill up time, this is the book for you! Funny voices are a must...

 My go to professional-ish book is "Reading Strategies {That Work!}." This book includes many strategies that I incorporate into my guided reading groups. There are activities that meet the many different levels found in a typical classroom. I love that there is a reproducible bookmark that had an icon for each of the strategies used. I will work on a post about this book when I can did it out of storage. You can get it used on Amazon for one shiny penny! Well worth it. =)

Happy July and Happy birthday to America!

  3. Great blog! I'm also using Whole Brain Teaching. I started it last year, and I'm going to start it more next year. I really like the classroom rules--with the hand gestures of course! And I've been using this summer the "Yes! No Way!" strategy with my summer camp kiddos. They loved it!

    Happy blogging :)


  4. Mmm I could go for some ice cream too, but unfortunately it's not part of this diet I'm on. Boo...:(. I said I'll treat myself when I lose 5 more pounds!
