What is your advice about? Promoting Reading for Pleasure

  1. Let students see you reading every day. Some kids might never see an adult reading so make sure it’s you.
  2. Make time for reading every day. It’s a habit that needs to bite so make sure students get ten minutes at least.
  3. Allow students to read whatever they want, at first. Get a book in their hands and look to push more appropriate books their way, in time
  4. Book in for a weekly library slot. Never send kids there alone as they often have no idea what they’re looking for.
  5. Never let reading for pleasure slip off your desk because you’re too busy. If it’s important then you must show your students that it’s important.
