My main goal for the remainder of this class is to discover what books are interesting to my students’ age range. I have fourth through seventh grades, and a wide variety of taste in literature.
My focus will be on having them continue to assign me books to read, and to challenge myself to see how quickly I can read them. They do pay attention, and continually ask how far I have read and if I like the book.
Even if it isn’t my favorite, I always find something positive for them.
Another goal is to pass down and support my students’ love of teaching. This week we did a “Buddy Read” with the lower grade students. It was so good to see how thoughtful my students were with their younger sidekicks.
This will be a weekly event on Wednesdays. It is especially beneficial for those who struggle with reading out loud.
