“The world belongs to those who read.”
For about 3 months students have been completing reading responses at a very regular and consistent pace and what they create is amazing. At the same time, as a teacher, I have been making recommendations to students for books to read each month based upon what I think are good books. But recently, something scary dawned upon me, I’m not a young boy any more. I need to do something better to help students choose books.
I regularly share students’ work with students and parents to let them know how proud I am of them. Then it smacked me in the face, like a giant tree branch when you’re not paying attention walking down the street – the students are making all these amazing recommendations.
I brushed off the leaves and I started scanning some of the work that the students had shared with me. and for the very first time, here is the work from April. Students who read books and put in a huge amount of effort to recommend the books that they read.
Please enjoy them as much as I did, and, if the book suits your taste, check it out, either from our library, or from EPIC.
See you again next month.
