On Friday, I started a new book during guided reading with some of my most reluctant and below level eighth grade readers. As we began to read and practice inferring character traits of characters in chapter 1 of the graphic novel, Smile, I couldn’t help but get excited by my students’ excitement while reading. Providing students with access to high interest, age appropriate, at level literature is essential to foster a love of reading. How do you foster a love of reading in your classroom?

Happy Reading,
