(The two largest reminders in the past month have come from Lucy Calkins and one of her eight essentials to reading instruction ("Learners need teachers who demonstrate what it means to live richly literate lives, wearing a love of reading on our sleeves.") while the other came from Donalyn Miller's blog post, Getting on the Bus.)
On this final day of the first month of 2016, I'd like to share the commitment I have made to reading this year and the progress I am making towards that goal. My goal this year is to read 100 books and with 25 under my belt in the first month I am 1/4 of my way to my goal while only being 1/12 through the calendar year (see, I dabble in math a little bit as well!).
Check out the graphic below to see the books I have completed in January 2016.
Feel free to check out my Goodreads page to learn more about how I rated the books I have read thus far. Now, back to my current book!
