This was a messy, last minute, thrown together book chat type of day, but I managed to talk about many of the books in this pile before my students start the process of checking out their independent reading text for Quarter 2! The overarching topic is Conflict & Resilience. These are some of the books checked out multiple times from my classroom library today: The Hate U Give, All-American Boys,The Program, The Border, Written in the Stars, the Monument 14 sequel, and Anne Frank and Me. It was a successful reading day! #booklover #independentreading #iteachhighschool #iteachtenth #iteachhighschoolenglish #teachergram #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #yalit #yafiction #classroomlibrary #wordnerd #choicereading #litcircles #bookstagram #instabooks

This book by Barbara Dee is a #mustread for all middle schoolers. It tackles the tough topic of harassment in a way that middle school kids will be able to understand. It’s a great way to show that “just messing around” is not an excuse. I’ll definitely be recommending it to all of my sixth graders, kids NEED a book like this. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ .

Looking for novel choice projects? @addiewilliams_tpt has you covered! Look at the way @cookiecrumbzz displayed Addie’s posters right by her classroom library. Pick a book, choose a project! Addie is a level-headed, inspiring ELA teacher and school librarian with no shortage of ideas about books and education. Her breathtaking Canadian nature photos make me want to move there! If you don’t know Addie, take a moment to pop over to her feed and say hello. 😊

I love seeing how Kaylee @mrskantonio is using my independent reading book spines resource as a fun Halloween decor piece! These are a great way to watch the collective volume of reading grow throughout the year as well as for informal book recommendations. What are the most popular #yabooks in your classroom this year?

Just a few of the new additions to the classroom library courtesy of the Senior Project Bookfair. Remember to access the classroom library request form on Classroom if there is a book you would like to see added to our room. The bookfair runs through Sunday online, so another purchase may be in order. #bookaddict #highschoolreaders #choicereading #independentreading

We had our first #ProjectLit book club at #risepies to discuss OTHER WORDS FOR HOME by #jasminewarga. Sharing ideas with students from other schools, learning just how small our world is, and developing social justice awareness. 🔥

I was walking out of my night class and stopped dead in my tracks when I saw these beauties....ONE PAGERS!!! Kudos to @leeuniversity College of Education for using this creative assessment project in undergrad classes!! Are you a fan of one pagers too? I use them as summative assessments for class novels, choice reading, and even short stories. I’m always looking for creative projects like these to add to my teacher toolbox and these are perfect to gauge student comprehension and analysis of a text. What are your favorite creative assessments?? 🎨🎭

Creating reading posters with book selfies takes about ninety seconds in Canva! Did you know @acevedowrites has another great YA novel out, With the Fire on High? Her protagonist is a winning combination of spunky and real, frustrated and brave. I love her love of food and recipes, and I admire the sacrifices she makes for her babygirl. This is a good add for your class library. #englishteacherbookrecs #iteachela #teachersofthegram #choicereading

Because it’s  M O N D A Y ! 😃 Nothing new, just easily accessible to edit as you see fit! Stop & Jot is a great strategy for any read aloud or independent reading situation no matter the subject. These are great spring boards for conversation between kids. Let them formulate their own thinking instead of giving them the questions and trapping their thinking in a box! 🧠 Ask them, “What’s worth talking about?” Link in profile.

With a Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo, the National Book Award-winning author of The Poet X, is back and on top of her game with this novel. Emoni is a high school senior at a charter school in Philadelphia with a daughter and a passion for the culinary arts. This exploration of what it means to be a responsible and dedicated dreamer will leave you both inspired and hungry. Absolutely would recommend.

Working on my reading nook article for the school newsletter, which is run by an ELA teacher and our fabulous writing center! Topic...reasons we are prioritizing independent reading in class. I feel like there are a lot of misconceptions about the value of choice reading. What information or research would you include in this note for students and parents/guardians?

I just got The Girl Who Smiled Beads in the mail and I can't wait to dive into it! Quarter 2 deals with conflict and resilience, and these are some of the titles in my classroom library that I hope my students will pick up for independent reading. I like to offer up diverse choices that all deal with conflict and resilience in their own way. See any books here you like?

I use colored dots to organize my #classroomlibrary by genre. Each book has a colored sticker at the top to represent the genre and a white sticker at the bottom with the initial of author’s last name. It takes a lot of work, but it’s worth it to me when a student can easily find a book. All my books are scanned into #booksource and that allows me to check out books to each student. 📚 .

Six weeks in and my students are rockin’ and rollin’ with their choice reading. Whenever a book is finished, they simply put it in my return basket, I copy the front cover and put in up on our “Books We’ve Read” board. It gives them something to be proud of, and serves as a great spot to look for book recommendations. 👍🏻Happy Friday everyone! 📚

“How are you?”
•
I have to remind myself daily that student behavior is a form of communication. Their lives are so much more than the walls of your classroom, and there are so many kids who are carrying more than they should be.

This is your daily reminder to ask your students how they are. You might be the only person who has asked them today. ~ Emma

Book tasting! This is the menu I put together for our book tasting today. The students sampled different books to choose one for their first choice reading book. The menu was so much fun and it allowed the students to get an idea about the book before it was delivered to their table for further exploration. I am so excited to start choice reading!! .

Free Choice Reading is SO IMPORTANT.  I provide my students with IR (Independent Reading) time every day.  During this time, I try to have individual conversations with kids to get to know more about who they are as people and who they are as readers. 
This year to keep track of these conversations I am going to keep a giant Post-it note against my back wall for each block and put smaller post-it notes for each of the students I have met with on that, then once I have met with all the students in that block I will begin again with a new color to indicate a new round of conferences. This way, I have a GIANT visual to keep me on track.

This year to keep track of these conversations I am going to keep a giant Post-it note against my back wall for each block and put smaller post-it notes for each of the students I have met with on that, then once I have met with all the students in that block I will begin again with a new color to indicate a new round of conferences. This way, I have a GIANT visual to keep me on track. • • • #choicereading #independentreading #readingconferences #relationships #teacherstudentrelationship #buildconnections #buildrelationships #teacherlife #teacher #iteach6th #iteachsixth #teachers #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofig #middleschool #sixthgrade #6thgrade #ela #englishlanguagearts #lovewhatido
This is how we share what we’re currently reading - the post-its eventually make it to a huge paper where we graph all the books by genre per nine weeks. 📚 .

Story time...
When we started independent reading with sophomores, I noticed one of my students reading a battered copy of Milk and Honey. I made a casual comment about how it was on my “to-read” list. She gasped, “You haven’t read it yet?!” and quickly promised to bring me her “good” copy to borrow.
I finished it in one day. I can’t decide what’s more beautiful: the powerful words written by Rupi Kaur, or the fact that my student has read this book so many times that it’s falling apart 🖤 ~ Emma

It’s no coincidence that our most voracious readers are also our top performing students. #letthemread .

Every. Single. Day.

No matter the length of your class, fitting in choice reading will be a game changer for your students.

I have 54 min class periods and we read for 15 minutes every single day. We actually BEGIN each period with our choice reading to make sure it get fit in and to show that it is a priority.

Also, you can just let them read for enjoyment. No test, project, or assignment necessary. 🤗

Thanks for listening to my short rant, but seriously... if you have any questions on how to fit choice reading into your schedule, let me know and I’ll be happy to help. 💙

Seniors are a couple of weeks into our Real World Reading & Writing unit. When we started the unit, I wanted to hear about what paths they were interested in taking after high school. My goal is that they keep those interests in mind when we go through this unit and think about what kind of reading and writing they might be doing specifically 🤔 Here’s an example of their brainstorming sheets!
Do any of you do similar lessons/units with your students?? ~ Emma

I passed out the Quarter 1 independent reading one-pager directions today! Students choose one of the following genres: sci-fi, dystopian, post-apocalyptic, or fantasy. They conduct two book chats with me throughout the quarter and their culminating project is a one-pager. I've found that they usually put out tons of effort on the one-pagers because a. It's not another essay 😂 and b. They get to be artistically creative. This year, I changed some requirements to hopefully avoid plagiarism issues. They no longer provide a plot summary, etc. and instead have to provide more personal responses. It definitely helps that over half of my classroom library is dystopian and I've read most of the books they chose 😍. How do you assess choice reading in your secondary classrooms?

My class was luckily enough to #skype with #stacymcanulty today to learn about her new book THE WORLD ENDS IN APRIL. She was absolutely wonderful with the students and they loved hearing about her research that went into the book. That book already has a list of kids that want to check it out. Bonus...she’s a huge dog lover. 🥰.

Just goes to show you that not everything in our classrooms needs to be over the top. This quick display, with messy handwriting, was all I had time for when my scholastic box arrived. But it was enough. Enough to create interest, and enough that each book ended up in a student’s hands by the end of the day. It never ceases to amaze me how much motivation increases when we give students choice and surround them by quality books—and lots of ‘em! #choicereading #readingworkshop

This book was incredible. A story that highlights the sadness of the refugee crisis that includes an unlikely friendship and a theme of helping others and never giving up. I’ll be buying a copy soon to add to my classroom library. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ .

We spent a lot of time book shopping and using good strategies when for browsing books to read. Many of the kids now have a pretty big #booksiwanttoread list (and it’s only the third week of school). 🥰

“This story was going to begin like all the best stories. With a school bus falling from the sky.
But no one saw it happen. No one heard anything. So instead, this story will begin like all the...good ones. 
With boogers.”
Thanks to @simonkids , I woke up to an advanced reader copy of this book...a fun way to start a Friday! 😊 I’ve only just begun reading, but I can tell this is going to be a great read for reluctant middle school students! What @jasonreynolds83 books are popular in your #classroomlibrary ?

A sweet colleague gave me a #BearcatPRIDE coin “just because” on Wednesday. I tried to get a selfie to thank her, assuring her that I’d make her look good, but we never got the chance. I love collaborating with her and offering more #choicereading to our English 2 kiddos. Thanks, @the.queencobra 😊
