Book Binge

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I'm a book addict. I've realized I have quite a few addictions:
-diet coke (if only...)

Yesterday I ordered two books from've been avoiding purchasing them for quite some time as I know I have a book addiction...but I couldn't resist any longer! I am so excited to dig into this books this summer:
The CAFE Book: Engaging All Students in Daily Literary Assessment and Instruction
The CAFE Book

The Daily Five
The Daily Five

I love love love reading and literacy, and I feel like these books will be great tools for me next year! Plus, I also snuck in this wonderful DVD that I had no idea existed...but am soooo happy I found...
Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus (Scholastic Storybook Treasures)
Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!
How did I not know that there was a Pigeon DVD?! Phenomenal! I kind of hope it rains this week so we can watch it during recess!

...Then of course this evening, I snuck out to McDonald's for a diet coke ($1 for a large diet coke?! Uh-oh...), and I returned to peruse some blogs and see that several teachers are leading a book study about Debbie Diller's Math Work Stations, and so again got a hold of me!
Math Work Stations: Independent Learning You Can Count On, K-2
Math Work Stations: Independent Learning You Can Count On, K-2
Check out the blogs that will be hosting the discussions and order your copy of the book now too! 

Happy Sunday!!
