My goal for the remainder of the semester was to keep up with the books that my students assign me.
It continues to be a good goal, however, I have had to request that my students please keep the science-fiction type books to a minimum. The conversations about what type of books we each enjoy was very rewarding. Even those who don’t like reading as much as the others put their two cents in!
I have read a wide variety of chapter books, and have found myself staying up way too late trying to finish a book.
I plan to continue with my original goal. I’m adding in a few more picture books, just to add some variety.
One of the biggest logistical challenges is locating a particular book that I would like to read. Our little school library really does have a great selection, but when I have a particular title, I don’t always find it. I don’t get home early enough to go to our local library, and the bookmobile makes it rounds every two weeks.
With that being said, I could work my way through the pages in our school library and probably not finish in my lifetime. Now THAT would be a goal!
