SOLSC Day 14 of 31 Please Read With Me Tonight
Each day when I meet with the students I begin with, "Who can celebrate what they read last night?" Often the students say that they have not read and that neither the bag nor the book has come out of their backpack.
Time to try another approach. I purchased an inexpensive photo album, removed the pages and designed an insert promoting the cause for reading at night. I then had the student sign the note and attached it to their backpack with a large notebook ring. The plan is that the parent will see the tag on the outside of the bag leaning against the wall at home. It will serve as a gentle (or not so gentle) reminder of the pleasant time they can spend with their child. I hope we do some celebrating tomorrow!
