In past challenges I’ve had a list of 25 – 30 books. This year is going to be different. This year I have extra duties at school. Since I am one of two testing coordinators at the school, who also teaches six full classes, and since testing will be upon us in the next 3-4 weeks. I’ve got to keep my list simpler.
My goal is to finish the three books I have been reading. Yes, I always have more than one book going at a time. I will be reading several children’s books and a few books for review. If time allows I will add books as I get to them. My plan is to have one day each week for sustained silent reading in my classroom. This way my students and I can work on this challenge. I also plan to use my weekends to read more.
April 29 – May 5 is Screen Free week and I am encouraging my students and others to turn off their TV’s and read.
