Raise your hand if you agree that one of our goals is to make kids readers:
Right? Most of us readily agree that we want kids to be readers. The research is out there that says that when kids read, and read well, they do better in pretty much everything.
BUT . . . it takes more than just saying we want to develop readers. As most of us who work with students can attest, just wanting them to be something isn't enough. It takes WORK to get them to grow. And that includes as readers.
So, what can you do? One of the best things is to read with them. That includes during class reading time AND reading things that they enjoy so you can share ideas, give recommendations, and just talk in general about books that you have in common.
Now, some of you might be saying, "But, I'm really more of a Chandler here." Meaning, you have a book or books in your classrooms, but you aren't reading them. Or you haven't read any NEW ones. Well, if so, you are in LUCK. The library is here to help!
How so? Summer hours for checkout, display tables during staff development TODAY, and recommendations from Ms. Tasich. In addition, the library always has links available to help you (and the kiddos) find your next read!
Take a TBR Summer Stack handout, choose some titles, and let's talk BOOKS!
Summer Hours: June 14th, 28th, July 12th, 26th from 4-6 pm. Books can be returned any weekday from 7-3 to the front office.
