When I was a kid reading was my great escape. I always had a book under my pillow for reading before I fell asleep and/or if I woke up early.
So, like Laura Candler in today’s article, I found it tricky as a teacher to find ways to transfer my enthusiasm for books to my students. I used methods such as the ones suggested here by Laura with my students and found them to be most helpful in encouraging the children to read and share their experiences.
Please share any ways you have for encouraging children to read.
