Mrs. Stanford's First Linky: Good Reads!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I can't believe how amazing all of you are and I just wanted to join the linky fun! I've been looking on other blogs and talking about books that I need to read this summer and I'd like to know what you suggest!

Mrs. Stanford's Class

As for my favorites:
I currently own, have read, and will probably read again!
Yes, yes, I know it's summer and everyone wants to relax and maybe not think of school for a few days at least, but I recommend all four! 
Whether you are a new, seasoned, or retired, they will have you laughing and having many "ah-ha" moments.  Phillip Done shares his hilarious true life stories from inside his classroom. Both of his books are easy reading and made me think, "Oh my word I do that too!"

 
Ron Clark, as I'm sure you all know, is another ammmmmmmazing teacher! His books still make me rethink things I do each day (even outside of the classroom AKA at dinner with my friends haha)
If you haven't read these already I suggest you grab them! I'm not joking when I say you can read all of them in a week, hence the reason I need your suggestions ;)
 
Now it's your turn....
 
Don't forget to grab the linky button above (you can even back date the post if you don't want this to be your most recent ... I don't care)and leave your blog post below so that others can find your suggestions too!!

I highly recommend them! They are such easy reads (which makes it even better)

Thanks for stopping by ;)

Jessica Stanford said...

It's very easy! Just take the HTML code from under my linky picture. Post that into a new post (under HTML tab) and start your link up post. When you're done copy that direct posts web address into the linky tab above. It'll let you choose your picture and name for everyone to see. If you have any questions feel free to email me!

If the HTML stuff is too confusing you can also just save the linky button as a picture and then add a link to it like you would with anything else. ;)

No problem!! Thanks for stopping by :)

Great idea! As a teacher I find none of my non-teacher friends ever want to read the same books as me and get bored hearing me talk about them.

Hi1 I'm your newest follower. My computer is old and doesn't like linky things (sad face) However, if you want some fun but unusual reads I reccommend the following:
Miss Peregrine's Home for Unusual Children
The Night Circus
South of Superior
The Violets of March
A Discovery of Witches
I plan to read the sequel to the Discovery of Witches this summer along with the Daily 5 book and Daily 5 Cafe book.

If you have a minute come on over.
