It's Monday! What are You Reading?

Thank you Jen and Kellee for hosting this weekly!  To see what others are reading and recommending, or to participate, be sure to check out their blog Teach Mentor Texts :)

I have been reading and loving Common Core English Language Arts in a PLC at Work Grades 3-5 by Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey and I highly recommend it!  I will definitely be posting more about this professional text soon so stay tuned! 

Since I have been reading more professionally this week, I thought I would share some of our nonfiction read alouds that we read and enjoyed in class last week.  I will be posting photos of our read aloud charts from these texts in the Bulletin Boards and Charts section of this blog (I continue to add to this section with photos from our 5th grade classroom).  

Happy Reading! :)


  1. I'm really interested in the Common Core book. I teach 4th grade. Looking forward to checking out your read aloud charts.

    1. The book is a great resource and I love how it digs deep into the CCSS - I highly recommend checking it out.
