At the start of the school year, I shared my concerns with the class that I wanted to make sure that they were not simply reading for the sake of gaining AR points. When they leave here, I want to ensure that they are “Readers in the Wild”, someone who takes books with them wherever they go, reading not because they are forced to, but because they love to!
I snapped this picture today while they were reading on their own. I thought it was the perfect illustration for sharing a love of reading. Everyone has their face buried in a book, not a book they were forced to read, but because they want to, and they love it! I hope that a book is always such a magical thing for them!
