Top Ten Comments About Reading from my Middle Graders
Instead of focusing on the fact that there are 42 weeks until summer break (I really DO love my job…but who doesn’t like summer break?), I’m sharing the top ten comments about reading that I’ve heard in the seven days since school started.
10:Can I read with a friend?
9: (about non-fiction) Can we please just look at a few more maps and try to find stuff?
8: Did you know that (insert more facts that you can possibly imagine about Wizardology)?
7: I love when the last sentence in a book is the book’s title.
6: Oh, I’m totally getting that book.
5: Can we say what we’d do if we were the character?
4: We’ll keep working if you’ll keep reading to us.
3: We really just want to read.
2: Would it be okay if we did less math so we can read?
1: I’m just going to put it (the book) down because I don’t want it to be over.
Editors note – Our fabulous guest contributor, Jody describes herself as a happily married mom of two girls. She is an elementary school teacher. She loves books and feels very fortunate to be able to read so many different genres and authors as both a mom and a teacher.
