    Reading five professional development books plus at least two books for each of the 26 letters in the alphabet will earn a faculty a platinum badge. This means each child is reading a minimum of 3 hours and 45 minutes a week. We would also like to hear of any recommendations from your classroom that we could incorporate into our reading pedagogy. It is stocked with books from our our own personal collections, the local community library, books loaned or donated by the children themselves this has taken off in a big wayand good-quality texts which we purchase from second-hand shops. N o more stars, points, or yo-yos. Tracking Reading To keep track of reading, during DEAR time, we spend around ten minutes every couple of weeks, collecting information from each child and putting it on a spread-sheet.

    There's plenty of fun, diverse ways that you can engage with writing and reading. Can we just take a moment to geek out about how cool that is? Have fun! You can even have students apply for library cards while you're there. It is rather like the idea that we are all going to pop out and eat Chicken McNuggets or something else horrid at once. The fiction collection is broadly organised into quick, longer and challenging reads, and children are free to sample any book.

    Throughout the text, there's a realistic bent to the content. But I also know that giving them time is not enough. And they came back up for air and I wished that I could give them more than the lousy ten minutes we start with every day. What's really special about the online literary world is that with all of this free content, it's really easy to be a reader without emptying your bank account. The literary critic Harold Bloom said, "I don't like these mass reading bees Book Talks Recommending, describing, discussing particular books, and talking about reading generally are becoming a natural part of our classroom.

Creating A Community Of Readers: The Power Of DEAR

I paste book plates into the donated books and have students sign their names to indicate that the book was a gift from a certain child or family.

The great news is that there's also a huge online literary community to explore. We created poster collages and prominently displayed book covers of books read throughout the year. Periodically I look at the texts which are something like "skills for critical reading" but I find the structure better in this one.

Too often the systems we put in place, such as the way students check out books, stand in the way of reading.

My favorite part is at the end of the vocabulary section where students are reminded they don't need to look up words. Whether you like reading about writing, reading about reading, or you just want something new to read, there's plenty of options for you out there.

I know the research and what is says about independent reading. We must love the act of reading. Librarians love to show students around the library and get them excited for events and reading programs that they have planned.

One City One Book

Students look to us for the passion they may lack and we must live it. Through encouragement and reminders, the children generally do this. Reading five professional development books plus at least two books for each of the 26 letters in the alphabet will earn a faculty a platinum badge.

At the end of the training, you'll complete the second half, compare your "before" and "after" responses, and find out how far you've progressed.

I allow students to bring up to five books. For children that do their 30 minutes of home reading, this equates to over 7 hours of reading a week!

One City One Book (also One Book One City, [City] Reads, On the Same Page and other variations) is a generic name for a community reading program that attempts to get everyone in a city to read and discuss the same book.

The name of the program is often reversed to One Book One City, or is customized to name the city where it occurs.
