I am planning to focus on writing this summer. So several books on writing are just waiting to be read or reread - the main 2 are these:
"Day by Day" byRuth Ayres and Stacey Shubitz
I receive the weekly newsletter from Stenhouse and it is always filled with great info, as well as opportunities to preview books online. This is one of them - I want to review it.
"The Art of Teaching Writing" by Lucy Calkins
I also plan to take part in the Summer Writing Camp (check out the info here at "Two Writing Teachers' blog - a great resource). It will be a perfect opportunity to develop my own writing skills and be involved in a writing community. It starts June 4!
Summer is my time to catch up on all the books I have been either piling beside my desk at home or listing in a notebook, that others have recommended. Here are a few I am anxious to get into:
The Outlander by Gil Adamson
The Pact by Jodi Picoult
Alice I Have Been by Melanie Benjamin
Women Food and God by Geneen Roth
The Dressmaker of Khair Khana byGayle T. Lemmon
I am also planning on reading as many YA and picture books as I am able. I plan to frequent the library more often and check out books that I can use as mentor texts.
All in all, I am so looking forward to a summer of reading.
Be sure to check out the great lists from others here.
