I am not ashamed to admit it. I’m a PBJ (Professional Book Junkie).
My very first professional book was Invitations (Regie Routman)…I’m probably showing my age, but every since that book I’ve been hooked.
I’m too ashamed to take pictures of my seven plus bookcases filled with professional and teacher resource books. Some people are shoeaholics (is that a word??) Well, I’m a bookaholic, and professional books are just one habit I have to support. There’s cookbooks, magazines, fiction books, self help books. You name it and I probably have it. My house could really become a branch of my cities local library. I just wanted to highlight a few.
Classroom Bibles: Literacy
I always keep various combinations of these books in my school bag. These are the books I read over and over again, the books that have highlighting, highlighting tape, sticky notes, notes in the margin, ideas scribbled on those blank pages that are in the backs of books. These are the ones I can’t live without.
Classroom Bibles: Math
These are books that have a wealth of information. Whenever I’m planning a math unit these are the books I go to.
Well, I showed you mine. Now…what are the professional books you can’t live without?
