I love that my students love reading. They often beg me for more time to read each day after our standard 20 minutes. I also love when my lower level students experience a book for the first time. Some of them have never completed a book. I love watching my students grow as students, but also as individuals. My goal is to teach students to be lifelong readers. When I hear students recommend a book to their friends, I know they enjoy reading.
Students need to have an opportunity to practice in their own independent reading books all of the skills we teach them in class! Each day, my class spends 20 minutes reading their book of choice. The titles I chose are some of the most popular titles for teens. The books are always checked out from the media center so I would like to give them another opportunity to read great books! The more titles I provide, the more students I can reach. The right book is so crucial at this age where students decide whether they love reading. I want to make every student a lifelong reader.
