Raising Readers

I've been on a personal mission, since the start of my teaching career, to instill a love of reading in my students. This week, we completed several reading surveys and reading assessments to learn how to best reach that goal. I have to admit, I was saddened, as I am every year, at the number of students who report that they hate reading. 

Mark my words... they will change their tones before the end of the year. 

This infogram from Usborne books shows some pretty staggering numbers, in my opinion, and makes me even more ambitious about my quest. I thought I'd pass it along for those of you that might want to share with your students' parents via email or in your next newsletter.
