How To Get Your Students To Love Reading Pt. 1

Eva Mireles3rd grade teacher, 4th grade teacher, 5th grade teacher, The Reading Teacher's Playbook Podcast, Upper Elementary

Listen in as:
I share part one of a two part series about how a love of reading is cultivated in a classroom. Part one of this series is all about how a love of reading is caught.
I talk about:
-Taking on the identity of a reader
-Making it impossible to opt out
-What books to start with
-How to take your reading habit public
– If you have a negative attitude about reading your students will pick up on it too.
-We start by taking on the identity of a reader. I know this sounds simple, but this is exactly what we do with our students. We start by trying to get them to see themselves in a different light so that they can start thinking of the possibilities and acting accordingly.
– I would also recommend you read books that fuel your fire for teaching and specifically teaching reading.
