Summer Reads 2016

Summer is in full swing in my neck of the woods.  We just returned from a family vacation and now summer officially begins around my house.  I love that I have time to read during the day, usually by the pool watching my son and his friends swim.  I thought that I would share what is on my personal and professional reading list this summer.

My summer reads always consist of recreational and one or two professional (teacher) books.  I always get my recreational books on my Kindle.  I love using it by that pool.  The first book on my agenda is one that I must have downloaded a while back.  It was on my Kindle library and I haven’t read it yet.  It’s called A Life That Fits.

The other two that I would like to read are The Kitchen House and Me Before You.

I have a couple of books that I am reading with my son this summer as well.  One is just for fun, the BFG because we both want to see the movie this summer.  The other will benefit both of us because we are getting a new puppy in another week and it has been a long time since we have had a puppy.  It will be the first puppy for my son.  The book is The Art of Raising a Puppy.

I always have a hard time choosing professional books, there are so many to choose from!  One of the books I plan to read is Teaching Reading In Small Groups by Jennifer Serravallo.  She is the same author of The Reading Strategies Book, which I added to my professional library last year.


The second book teacher book that I would like to read this summer is called Mindsets in the Classroom.  I can’t wait to read this one.  I think that mindset and how we approach problems/situations is an important skill to learn.  I think it will benefit me as a classroom teacher and a mom!


There you have it, my summer reading list.  What is on your summer reading list?  I would love some ideas.
