|The First Days of School by Harry K. Wong|
|The First Six Weeks of School by Paula Denton and Roxann Kriete (Responsive Classroom)|
|The Morning Meeting Book by Roxann Kriete (Responsive Classroom)|
|The Daily 5 by Gail Boushey and Joan Moser ("The Sisters") |
|The CAFE Book by Gail Boushey and Joan Moser ("The Sisters")|
Each of these books can be found at Amazon.com by clicking on the caption below the book. They are each under $20 and definitely my go-to reference each year.
I will definitely go into more detail about how I use elements of Responsive Classroom, Daily 5 and the CAFE models to teach reading. I will also gush about how awesome "The Sisters" are in person and how you should totally fork over the money to see their 2-day workshop (or get professional development funding for your whole grade level team to offset part of the cost like we did).
