I am heading off to a book signing this weekend at Reading Recovery Conference in Ohio and I am so excited... I am an Author. A year and a half ago I submitted some books to be considered for publishing by Hameray Publishing Company. They published 3 sets of books written by Reading Recovery Teachers. The goal of creating these 3 sets was to help support Reading Recovery, because most of the profit from the sales of the book goes back to the Reading Recovery Fund. A small amount from the sale of each book gets paid to the author of the book. I was excited to have a book chosen for the 3rd and last set of the books.
My book is a level H which is a 1st grade level book. As a former Reading Recovery Teacher and now 2nd grade teacher I realize just how important the skills and strategies the students learn in Reading Recovery help them as a reader. It is neat to see my students use these strategies and to help them continue to use them in 2nd grade. There are many reasons I am excited about my book. The first is I am helping support a great program for those struggling readers. (I have witnessed this first hand as my son went through the Reading Recovery program as a 1st grader many years ago.) Second, I have always wanted to write a book. Third, my mother and I took all the pictures for the book. Fourth, it is written about my family and my son!! The exciting part of this post is Hameray Company is letting me give the book away to 20 teachers to promote their series and my book. I do have 15 teacher friends that I would like to give my book away too, but that leaves 5 more. If you are interested in getting a copy leave a comment below with your email address. I will need to contact you to get your home address, school name, grade you teach, and phone number to give to the company. If you are willing to give me the information I would love for you to have a copy of my book!
