February is I love to Read Month and my school is doing a month long reading celebration. As a part of it at my school, students and teachers are trying to keep track of how many pages they read during the month. We have a goal of reading 1 million pages!
Many of my students are struggling readings, so I'm trying to get them into it in the speech room. I put "We Love to Read on the back of my door, and I'm having the students fill out hearts with their names and the name of a favorite/liked/recently read book or series of books. For some students I do some research ahead of time on what books they like to have choices during their speech time. I didn't have one for one of my students on the spectrum,. so his heart says "Valentine Candy" because once he make a choice he couldn't be guided otherwise. A few students have labeled the most recent book we've read in speech.
I printed "We Love to Read, cut it out and backed it. A right-size heart for this activity does exist on the die-cut machine, unfortunately my school doesn't have it, so I cut them out by hand this time around.
Is anyone else celebrating I love to Read month?
