My first currently!

I'm so excited to link up to my first currently from Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade!!  I always enjoy reading them each month.  So, here goes!
How many of you cringe the first time you walk into the store and see back to school supplies front and center!!  It seems like after July 4th summer vacation is just a memory.
I really had a hard time thinking of my favorite read aloud of all time!  I love books!  So, I had to base it on one of my favorite author studies.  I love all of Cynthia Rylant's books and The Relatives came is one of my favorites.

My go to teacher book is Reading with Meaning by Debbie Miller.  I love all the comprehension strategies she has in the book.  It's a book that you can read year after year and always come away with something new.


  1. I didn't realize you were from Indiana!~ Me too! I wonder if we're anywhere near each other :)

  2. I was at Staples last week and they were setting up their Back to School display.... totally should not be allowed! We don't go back to school for over a month here! I need to finish the 50 Shades series soon. I'm almost done with book 2, and then have to move on to book 3!

    I hope you're enjoying your summer :)

  3. LOL....too funny! I'm on the third 50 Shades book right now, and between that series and my blog, I have been VERY distracted! :)

    Love the book "The Relatives Came"!

  4. I love anything by Debbie Miller. Have you read Teaching with Intention by her? It's wonderful!

  5. Instead of cringing when I see school supplies I get an adrenaline rush and want to buy up all the glue sticks and markers in sight...I might have a problem :)


  6. I totally cracked up at your 50 Shades comment! I'm in the same boat!
