#SOL16: To Be a Reader


JOY

Traveling to new places

Visiting old places

Making new friends

Visiting old friends

Learning new things

Relearning things left along the way

Collecting words and images

Revisiting great words and images from the past . . .

Each day MUST involve some personal choice

As necessary as the air I breathe!

Reading,

Something I choose.

Reading,

For myself.

Reading,

To grow my thoughts!

Reading,

To talk about books!

Reading,

To write about books!

Reading,

To find worlds to LOVE!

Do you read?

Why do you read?

If you teach readers, you MUST be a reader!

If you teach readers, you must BE a joyous reader!

Check out Donalyn Miller’s Nerdy Book Club post, “Getting on the Bus”, is a powerful read.  Stop, go read it.  Already read it?  Go read it again!  Demonstrate to yourself the power of rereading to confirm knowledge or celebrate the language.

My favorite quote:

teachers who read

Is this you?

If not, why not?

What’s your favorite quote?  How have you shared it?  How would we know?
