Here are my plans:
I will "bless" more books at all levels to help motivate my students to read them.
I plan to meet daily with my struggling readers and watch them read. I want to cheer them on as they build stamina.
I will provide them texts that they can read. I want them reading a lot! So, they will need lots of texts to keep them on task.
As a classroom community, we will focus on building reading stamina. We will make a goal. If we meet it, we will be rewarded in some way that will encourage them to continue reading.

Lastly, I want us to talk more about the books we read. By us, I really mean, my students. I need to stop some of the talking and listen. This will be hard but so worth it.
This has led me to wonder. How much time does your class spend on actual reading? Please share. I would love for you to join me in this discussion.
Happy Teaching and Learning!
