Calling All Summer Book Club Readers

Summer is officially here for many teachers. Some blogging friends and I decided to have a summer book club to get in some professional development and to look for innovative ways to improve instruction in our classrooms. Mr. Hughes from An Educator's Life blog is our book club leader. He found this awesome book for us to read and study this summer. It is going to be super!

I hope that you will join us in this summer book club. We will read Teaching with the Common Core Standards (Grades 3-5), and a different blogger will lead the discussion each week. We will read a chapter per week and comment on the weekly host blogger's post with our thoughts and comments. It is not too late to grab the book and come read with us. Even if you decided you cannot buy the book and read it right now, we would LOVE for you to join in each week to read the discussions and comment if you have thoughts and ideas. 

Mr. Hughes will host the first chapter and the post will go live on June 10th. Please join us as we build blocks of understanding and really dive into Common Core Standards for grades 3-5. Come on, we need you!
