Books, Beaches, and Summer

Hi Everyone!  I'm super excited to be participating in this blog hop with my fellow California bloggers.  Be sure to hit up each one and like their blog to be entered to win a one of four $25 gift cards to Teachers Pay Teachers!!!  Pffftttt - that's right! You read that correctly - $25 can be yours just for going around and liking each blog and while you're at it - collecting some fabulous freebies.  Well worth the effort in my opinion. :-)  Especially since the Teacher Pay Teacher sale is going on when the winners will be announced.

I don't know about you, but I've been enjoying this summer and catching up on some reading. From pleasure reading to professional development, I've been getting it all between running after my little ones of course.

My current book that I'm reading for school is called, What's Under Your Cape? and it's by a fellow blogger, Barbara Gruener.  So far, I'm loving it!  It's all about building character within your students.

I'm also enjoying 32 Third Graders and One Class Bunny by Phillip Done.  I've read this one before, but it's always fun to read again.  So many funny stories I can relate to.

In addition to those books, I have a few more that I like to keep by my bedside.  :-)  Of course, with all those, I have to have a way to keep my place as I switch between each one.  So I created these cute little beach themed book marks and I'm happy to share them with you all.

Print out a class set and hand them out to your students!  You can get them here.

Now it's time to Surf On!  Head on over to Miss Kindergarten featuring my bloggy friend, Hadar.

  8. I just had to comment on 32 3rd graders...Phil Done and I taught together and although he is now teaching in Budapest, we stay in touch. Those stories are true. I was there when he got his tie caught in the laminator. He is a California guy. (Northern CA)
