The beginning of the New Year holds such promise, much like beginning to read a new book. We don’t know quite where it will take us, but we’re willing to invest our time in the hope of a unique experience and a satisfying ending. The books we choose for ourselves and our children have the power to shape our lives. Let’s share the literacy journey this year as we explore books and encourage our children to become lifelong readers. Here are a few of my personal reading goals this year. Hope you will share yours, as well.
- Reread the “Little House on the Prairie” books and share them with the children in my life whenever I can.
- Keep abreast of children’s literature that I can offer my students and grandchildren by devoting at least ten minutes a day to reading books they might enjoy.
- Post books I read on Shelfari so I can track my reading journey.
Here in the Northeast, the snow is about to begin. As soon as I finish a few chores, I’m going to grab my book, a cup of tea and begin to chip away at these goals.
