A Plea for Books!

As we jump into a new and exciting school year, one of our main goals is to get our students excited about reading!  Encouraging students to talk about books they love, and revitalizing our classroom libraries with texts they are excited about are a few ways we can spark this enthusiasm. This year, we looking for our students’ help by asking them to donate a book they have read within the past year. This is only a suggestion, not a requirement!  By creating a classroom library made up of our students’ interests, the book that made one student think, dream, wonder, itch to read can do the same for many students.
