#22 of 31 Just a Reminder
I've been reveling in the comments I'm getting from some of my students and some who aren't my students but know I have books...
"I don't read. But this is a good book. I liked it." (A freshman boy who read The One and Only Ivan)
"Isn't she done yet?" (One of many waiting for The Diviners)
"What was the name of that book again?" (The Diviners again. I'm going to post my review tomorrow)
"Mrs. Day, what should I read next?" (I need to work on getting them to make choices independently!)
"I've read more in two months than I read all of middle school" (sad, isn't it)
"Can we please just read all class period?"
I think I'm pretty good most of the time.
But today, one comment reminded me that although more kids are reading, there are still a few....
"Mrs. Day, I need a book."
"What? Do you just sit home and read on Friday night?"
The student handled it well, but it reminds me
There is work to be done....
