Today, we worked together as a class to set reading goals for ourselves this school year. It is a beautiful thing to see how much growth students make as readers from the start of their 4th grade year to the end if their 5th grade year.
The class came up with some amazing ideas and ways to challenge themselves to grow. I started the conversation by telling them that often, we may find ourselves in ruts as readers and that we need to push our comfort zone. I did this over the summer by reading some books in genres that I may normally not dig into. When was the last time you pushed yourself to read something different?
