Get Caught… Reading!

As it turns out, May is "Get Caught Reading" month, so today I encourage you to take a break from testing and remember to enjoy a good book! This nation-wide event started in 1999 as a way to remind and encourage people of all ages to read and is sponsored by many companies and celebrities throughout the country.

Online you can find a variety of teacher resources to support students in "getting caught" this month, but one of my favorites is a site called Teen Reads that not only has contests, chat boards and a newsletter, but is also features some really fantastic book reviews for many Young Adult novels written in the past 10 years. This site as well as Read Write Think has great resources to try adding a bit of reading for fun into your classroom, so get out there and be caught… reading!
