Monday Must Reads: Volume 39

Happy Monday! The school year is winding down (at least at my school), and I am definitely excited about the upcoming summer. One of my favorite things to do during the summer is dream about what my classroom will be like the next year. It is my hope that you will find an idea to dream about doing either this year or next in this week's collection of Monday Must Reads!
