Reading Challenge

For the rest of the semester, I wanted to choose a challenge that would help me the most in my teaching career. Since I am planning to teach elementary and the middle grades, I thought I should read a little bit of both!

For my reading challenge, I want to read at least 5 picture books and 2 middle level books per week. When choosing the books, I have found multiple lists that have the “Most Popular” ones and these lists will be what I plan on basing my challenge on!

This challenge is very important to me because I think it is so cool to have already read the books that your students could be reading. This could help the students in discussions or if the students have any questions about the story, they can come talk to you!

This week I have already finished my picture books and my middle level picks are “Wonder” and “Double Fudge”. Of course these all will be featured in more detail in my “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?!” post this coming Monday.

If anyone has suggestions for me, I would love to hear them in the comments!

Until next time,

-Rachel
