The kick-butt reading teacher rides again!


Many hours have gone into reshaping my classroom library to fit the new third and fourth graders who will be cruising through the door tomorrow. The above nonfiction shelf is just one part of that project, and things are looking…good.
As big as the physical job was, the really important work starts tomorrow when 24 new readers come together and begin a new learning year. Will they like using my new book boxes? Will I? Which books will set the class on fire with excitement? Who will be voracious, and who will need to be nudged and lured and led into reading? I can’t wait to find out.

There’s one big decision I haven’t made yet, and that is…what book will be my first read aloud??? I’ve narrowed down the list, but I am still debating. When in doubt, any book that I demonstrably love will serve. Good luck to all as we start a new year of reading and learning and reading and learning!
