Happy day, friends!
Today I am joining with several dozen bloggers to invite you to an awesome summer book study showcasing Donalyn Miller’s Reading in the Wild!
An amazing reader and teacher, Miller shares her experiences in middle grades classrooms and how she has fostered a love of reading in her students in The Book Whisperer. Her classroom is INSPIRING! The book is so down-to-earth, a fast read, and filled with simple (but powerful) ways to create a culture of reading in your classroom. In The Book Whisperer, Millers leaves you with her frustration – students leaving her classroom loving reading but faced with future teachers that do not share Donalyn’s enthusiasm for reading. Gradually, her students leave the practice of daily, just-because reading.
Here enters, Donalyn’s second book, Reading in the Wild. This books acts as a follow-up to the first and discusses how to foster a love of reading that is lifelong and sustainable…even when a passionate teacher is not present. As a 5th grade teacher, this is powerful to me. How do I structure reading and sharing opportunities that set the foundation for life-long reading? Reading in the Wild address this question! (although it helps to have teh background of The Book Whisper, you don’t have to have read it to read Reading in the Wild!)
