Passion for Reading

Author Ingrid Law shared this video on her Straight From The Jar blog. I've posted it on my school website and shared it with our fourth grade students as well. I can't believe how much fun it has created and how contagious the message is. Yesterday, at the end of the day, I managed to end with playing the video right before busses were called. It really promotes a strong sense of community. Each month fourth grade students participate in a "Reading Challenge," however, the ultimate challenge, as we all know, is for students to continue to read on their own. I hope you enjoy the fine work of these students, and by the way... don't be afraid to turn it up!
