We Read Here

After a great first day of school, we're planning to launch our independent reading program tomorrow by visiting the library to get books.
Independent reading, or "sustained silent reading" has plenty of benefits.
Finding a book that's "just right" is important to our IR program's success, so Mrs. Kennedy (middle school library media specialist) and I are ready to help.
One of my favorite resources for helping students find books to read is a book blog called Story Snoops. I visit this site frequently to get ideas about book recommendations.
I also like to watch book trailers to find out about new titles. Here's a site with several trailers for you to watch.
Last year, seventh graders read over 1200 books. I'm looking forward to seeing if this year's students can top it!
