Making Recommendations a Year Later

Last year was the first year I really felt I made a difference in my students’ reading lives.  They moved from being extremely reluctant readers to voracious readers between September and June.  While I attribute this mostly to the outstanding class I had, I am very proud of the work I did to promote reading to them.

The most rewarding part of all that work?  I have students emailing me this year, from the middle school, to recommend books to me!  What an amazing feeling!  And just today I received an email seeking some recommendations from me, and I was able to share book recommendations from one former student with another.  How awesome is that?  🙂

  1. Wow! That must feel incredibly gratifying, knowing that you impacted a student in such a tangible way.

  2. Congratulations! That is just too cool for words.

  3. I totally know what you mean. Last year in 5th I had one girl who would not read. At all. This year as the Librarian, I gave her “39 Clues” to read and she ate it up and asked for more. Then she read the whole Percy Jackson series and asked for more. Now I’m trying to find others to give her, because as she said, “I don’t want to get into reading and then just stop.” What a blessing for us to be able to share book titles back and forth with students
