During Library, we have been working on setting individual reading goals. Setting reading goals helps students to think about the kind of reader they are now (their habits and interests) and to think about what ways they would like to improve their reading. It also helps students choose books that will interest them, provides motivation to read, and reminds us all of the importance of regular reading.
Our students have demonstrated great maturity in completing this task, and teachers have even stepped up to the challenge and set their own reading goals, reminding us that reading is always important, no matter how old you are!
Here are just a couple of great examples.
