Pitner's Potpourri is having a Reading Roundup linky party. Since I LOVE anything that has to do with reading I thought I'd take part in this linkup and share what is next on my reading list as well as check out what others are reading.
The rules: share one professional book you want to read, one book you want to read strictly for pleasure, and one you want to use to teach a skill in your classroom. These are books you haven't read yet but are on your To Read List!
Remember to add the reading roundup button and a link back to Pitner's Potourri to give credit to the original source.
Ok so here is my To Read List:
Think Social By Michelle Garcia Winner I hear so many great things about this book and Winner in general. I have been wanting to order this book and buy it for some time now. I need to just do it!
I have two that I really want to read right now:
1.) The Many Lives & Secret Sorrows of Josephine B. by Sandra Gulland (a historical fiction book written in diary format about Josephine Bonaparte)
2.) I Never Promised You a Goodie Bag by Jennifer Gilbert This is a memoir of true events of the authors life...some very tragic and some wonderful...and how she survived to tell the tale.
Book to use in Therapy:
This is a great book to teach children about caring for others, being kind, and even a great way to teach theory of mind to some of our kiddos who struggle with social skills. REALLY want to use it in therapy....and I CAN'T wait for the perfect time!!!! (most schools are now using this as part of their anti-bullying programs but I think it will also be perfect to teach social skills).
That's my list. What is yours?
Happy talking...and reading!!!
