40 Book Challenge
Let's challenge our students to read more!
40 books in a school year??? No way!!
YES WAY!! Building a class of book loving students can be done. Creating a place where each student feel safe to read all genres and not worry about tests or levels can be the beginning of a lifelong love of reading.
Visual literacy and reading widely
Connect with your students. Ask them what they are interested in reading. Guide them to books that they might not consider without a gentle push. Encourage them to "just try it". Help them understand it is okay to abandon a book after a few chapters. Give them freedom to choose and respect their choices.
