|Day 20 of 31 at Two Writing Teachers!|
Today, I thought I'd give you a peek at the results of this work. What does it look like when students delight in reading?
It looks like...
- book love: For example, the boy who called me over today at the end of independent reading time just to tell me how exciting Stormbreaker is. He chattered on and on about everything that was happening to Alex, ending with "I just want to keep reading and reading!"
|Students LOVED the goal-setting feature on Goodreads and how it tracks your progress!|
- planning future reading:
|Students love to add books from my Goodreads shelves!|
- rating books and sharing them with others:
- author love:
|For some reason, it shows the times 3 hours off, so this was actually before school!|
- series love & enthusiasm for discovering new books:
|(read the conversation from bottom to top)|
Hopefully, my students will look back on 2013 as the year they became readers. Thanks to Goodreads, maybe we'll even still be sharing books years from now!
