Read Around Revisited

I wrote about the Read Around strategy yesterday, and how it was a great way to get new books into the hands of my kiddos.

This week at our staff meeting, our principal (Jennifer Sisul, @grrprincipal, and a FABULOUS leader) took us through the same activity with our library’s professional library.  Let me tell ya, the great ideas are always flowing around our school!  And what great timing–Spring Break is next week and we’ll all have time to read.

So, just like our kiddos did, we took time to peruse some titles (some new, some old) and I found some great ones.  While I didn’t get a chance to get to everything, here are some interesting reads I’ve added to my list:

Neurodiversity in the Classroom (Armstrong); Guy Write (Fletcher); Underresourced Learners (Payne); Rigor is Not a 4-letter-word (Blackburn); 7 Habits of Happy Kids (Covey); Checking for Understanding (Fisher/Frey)

Neurodiversity in the Classroom (Armstrong); Guy Write (Fletcher); Underresourced Learners (Payne); Rigor is Not a 4-letter-word (Blackburn); 7 Habits of Happy Kids (Covey); Checking for Understanding (Fisher/Frey)

I also have at least a nightstand-full of kid novels I still want to read, too!  Hopefully my children will let me have some time for that next week!

Your turn: What’s on your to-be-read list?  How do you find time to read when you’re a busy, working parent?
