Get Your Students Reading

By June 26, 2009January 31st, 2023No Comments

This seminar will offer ways for teachers to encourage students to increase their recreational reading in grades 3-6. These students have learned the skills needed to read, but now need the opportunity to experience the wide world of literature. Ideas for encouraging students’ reading will be shared such as unique book reports, class book sharing, and incentive programs for beyond classroom reading. As students have multiple experiences with literature, they learn the joy of reading.
