The Power of Reading


In our classroom, we love to read, read, read. To quote Donalyn Miller, author of The Book Whisperer, “In The Power of Reading, his meta-analysis of research investigating independent reading over the past forty years, Stephen Krashen reveals that no single literacy activity has a more positive effect on students’ comprehension, vocabulary knowledge, spelling, writing ability, and overall academic achievement than free voluntary reading.” Carefully woven into each of our mornings is an opportunity for independent reading. We have set a goal for ourselves to read 30 books over the course of the year!
