My second hour speech class is filled with those kids. I told them they had never read a book they liked because I was never their reading teacher. I said if they would be honest about it, I could find them books that would interest them.
The challenge was on.
"Find me one, Mrs. Day!"
Me, Me, Me....
I started pulling down boxes and throwing out books. Literally. (It's kind of fun to amaze them when the book actually lands on their desk.).
Five boys and a girl took books with them as they left today. Alliterate, nonreaders. Kids who may actually try to read a book because I found books that interested them.
I'll have to check back in with them next week.
Hope it works!
