Blogging again

It has been awhile since I have blogged.  But I have been inspired to start a new blog dedicated to reading.  Here is the post that I would like my students to respond to:

Knowing yourself as a reader is really important.  Knowing your strengths and weaknesses can help you grow and improve your reading enjoyment.

I am an avid reader, but mainly in the summer when I have down time.  This summer I read over 16 books (adult books, chapter books and even picture books!).  I read textbooks, realistic fiction, true stories, humorous stories and enjoyed them all.  Sometimes I was reading four books at a time.  I don’t think that is a good idea because my focus became too divided.  I felt like I was juggling too many balls.

Who are you as a reader?

  1. Jamie,

    I love this idea of your students reflecting on who they are as readers. We work on this a lot in 4th grade so I hope it comes through in these reflections. I am super impressed with your 16 books this summer! I only read 2, weddings....geesh they really cut into your free read time. Thanks for reminding me too that I need to come to you for more picture book recommendations :)
